There was, of course, the ample hubbub surrounding NYC's Superhero-themed Costume Institute Gala at the Met in May, and now Warner Brothers has enlisted NYC designers Alice Roi, Laura "Abaéte" Poretzky and Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss to create a collection of Supergirl-inspired resort clothes. Per WWD via Racked NYC: "The studio conceived the idea and pitched it to Marc Beckman, founder of Designers Management Agency, who suggested his wife, designer Alice Roi. She brought in two friends from her days as a Manhattan private school kid, Laura "Abaéte" Poretzky and Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss, and they put together a wardrobe fit for an all-American heroine with superpowers."
As for the collection: "The collection is feminine and wearable, full of mod A-line dresses and gingham tops," with aims to sell at high-end department store and specialty stores worldwide. Hm, will Warner Brothers follow up with a movie to go with the clothing? As Racked NYC mentions, there hasn't been a Supergirl movie since 1984.
