Designs Subtly Feature the Global Icon’s Red, White and Blue Shield with a Retro Look
New York, NY (June 20, 2016) – Her Universe today announced a new fangirl sportswear fashion collection to celebrate this year’s 75th anniversary of Marvel’s Captain America. The patriotic inspired fashion collection, which celebrates the global icon, is available now exclusively at select Kohl’s stores and on Kohls.com. This retro collection was inspired by the 40’s era with a modern twist; the designs subtly feature Captain America’s shield incorporated in floral prints, bandana prints and patriotic patterns. With dresses, rompers, blouses, shorts and knit graphic tops, the collection ranges in price from $28.00 to $48.00 and is available in sizes XS-XL with select styles online in plus sizes 1X-3X. The Her Universe Captain America collection coincides with Kohl’s store-wide celebration of the Marvel Super Hero for the entire family.
“With the 75th anniversary we were really inspired by the 40’s era and the year that Captain America was created,” said Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. “We collaborated closely with the Kohl’s and Marvel teams to create the perfect summer collection that evokes the spirit of a girl from the 40’s with a mix of modern day trends.”
From his first Marvel Comics’ appearance in 1941 through the 75 years that have followed, Captain America has been one of the most influential comic book characters ever created. In both comics and films, “Cap” has been a beacon of light in the Marvel Universe and a central figure in the vast and dynamic world that Marvel fans know and celebrate today.
The Captain America 75th anniversary fashion collection is available now at select Kohl’s stores and online at Kohls.com/heruniverse.
