We've all seen comic-to-movie transitions, and the nightmare it thrusts upon costume designers who are trying to make something that works in ink make any sense at all in fabric. We've had the dark beauty of Batman, the awfulness of Ben Affleck in leather in Daredevil, the stylish mess that was The Watchmen and the spectacle of Wolverine in X-Men pouring scorn on the skintight outfits the team expect him to wear.
Now we have the utterly unexpected and fabulous collaborations between DC Comics and some of France's best designers. We have Karl Lagerfeld re-imagining The Green Lantern's gloves (left), Pierre Hardy's Superman bag and much more -- all at suitably high prices. Take a look, and dress like your favorite hero or heroine. But stay classy!
