Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the first ever episode of The Powerpuff Girls?! These little Cartoon Network cuties have been celebrating girl power longer than some of my readers have been alive. As part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations, menswear designer, Katie Eary is launching her first womenswear collection in collaboration with the colourful superheroes. The collection previewed at a party on the eve of London Fashion Week; featuring an all female skate team, a set of skate-ramps and neon lights. I wish I had been there, because there are very few photos of the actual garments to share with you right now and this is SO my cup of tea.
In addition to taking elements of The Powerpuff Girls into the design, Katie Eary’s collection also pull inspiration from 70s and 80s pop culture with a twist of cowboy style. I absolutely love the dark denim with the yellow embroidery character print, which will be available as a jacket, jeans and full length gown from what I can find so far. You’ll also be finding neon light inspired prints on luxe fabrics; unisex shapes and garments all put together in effortlessly cool and wearable combinations. This is a collection will feature everything from jeans, silk shirts and even a denim floor length gown. I love what I can see so far.
There is no information on a specific launch date or price ranges just yet, but having looked at Katie’s shop we’re looking at prices from around £60 for a t-shirt and £120 for hoodies. Although not super affordable the unique designs and luxury fabrics are justifiable if you have the spare cash. I’m really looking forward to seeing the collection in real life and I’ll try to update this post with new images and information as I find them.
In the meantime, you can look up #KatieEaryxThePowerpuffGirls on social to see a few more snippets of the collection. It’s not had near the attention it deserves so far, but I guess that’s what happens when you launch something at London Fashion Week, it’s easy to get lost amongst the noise and miss out.
