Exactly one month before Tron: Legacy’s December 17th world premier, a Tron-inspired capsule collection launched online at Opening Ceremony.
The 28 year old cult classic and its second installment, starring the unspeakably lovely Olivia Wilde and Hollywood legend Jeff Bridges, capitalize on the original’s resonance with the mid-twenties market by partnering with high-end fashion. The move is an unsurprising strategy by Disney Consumer Products, which has been striving for fashion relevance.
Designed by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, co-founders of the popular, go-to establishment for quirky, geeky, high-end fittings. Avid fans of the 1982 hit, they were more than happy to create a capsule collection for both men and women with a “high-tech”, futuristic edge.
The women’s line features peplum dresses, wool tulip coats, laser cut swingy mini-dresses, funnel-necked bomber jackets and seamed leggings. The men’s line features more “future soldier” style with moto racer jackets and pants, and shirts featuring the signature neon oranges, yellows and blues of the cyber Tron world. Also included in the collection are a neoprene sock boot in signature Tron hues, and a circle bag, an interpretation of the Identity Disc weapon in the film.
