Avengers-inspired women's line: designed by fangirls, for fangirls
Just in time for the May 1st release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hot Topic has rolled out a women's fashion collection inspired by the Marvel superteam. The line of dresses and jackets riff off key features of both heroes and villains, from Thor's hammer on a vintage-style sailor dress to a classic bomber jacket purportedly issued by Stark industries.
The collection, available mid-May, comes out of a collaboration between Disney and Her Universe Geek Couture, with some designs selected via competition at the Her Universe fashion show at Comic-Con San Diego 2014.
The all-female line starkly contrasts Disney's initial release of official Avengers merch, which focused only on the film's male characters for all but three items out of 60.
