Bloomingdale's to Celebrate DC Comics 75th Anniversary
Posted on October 12, 2009
Bloomingdale's stores have partnered with DC Comics to celebrate the upcoming 75th anniversary of DC Comics. This holiday season, Bloomingdale's will debut shops featuring DC Comics-inspired clothing and accessories. Designers contributing to the exclusive collection include Trunk, Junk Food, Converse, Psycho Bunny, Jack Space and Because We Were Bored. Pictured above is the Converse Superman v-neck tee, which will retail for $38.
DC Comics began publishing in 1935 with New Fun Comics #1, the first DC comic book. DC Comics will celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2010, with a multi-faceted, yearlong slate of activities heralded by the DC Comics-inspired collection at Bloomingdale's this month. Bloomingdale's kicks off its festivities on the evening of October 14 with a special event for its customers at store locations around the country.
The men's collection will include t-shirts, socks, scarves, tote bags and wallets, as well as ties, cufflinks and pocket squares. Bloomingdale's Young World department will also carry limited DC Comics-inspired products during the holiday season, including tees and hoodies from Because We Were Bored. The DC Comics collection will range in price from $30 for a pair of Psycho Bunny socks to $225 for a Jack Space tote.
