To celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘The Powerpuff Girls’, Cartoon Network has teamed up with Spanish fashion designer, Maria Escoté for a ‘Powerpuff Girls’ catwalk collection.
Continuing to take the fashion world by storm, the line was unveiled at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid.
Paying homage to the brand’s 90s heritage, the designs were inspired by the superheroines Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. Maria Escoté’s new clothing collection carried the message of empowering women it has brought to generations of girls and women.
Not only this, the designer has also taken inspiration from the villains of the show and has reinterpreted some of its iconic bad guys such as Sedusa, Him, Femme Fatale and Mojo Jojo.
‘The stylish collection features a variety of clothing and footwear items which bring a sophisticated take on female sportswear,’ read a statement from Cartoon Network.
Characterized by a cocktail of textures and a dose of colour, the collection is embellished with rhinestones, embroidery, crimped roses and taffeta ruffles to elevate the pieces to luxury items.
Recently, Cartoon Network has partnered with the Polish handbag designer Sabrina Pilewicz to create her own Powerpuff inspired handbags, each one depicting the style and originality of the three super-girls.
As the original ambassadors of girl power, the iconic brand has been inspiring generations of girls and young women since its initial launch in November 1998. From the moment Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup started to save the world before bedtime, they became more than just characters on a show, but a global phenomenon with a message of empowerment that still resonates 20 years later as a re-imagined series debuted in 2016.
