Miu Miu pays homage to Wonder Woman in a mini capsule collection Three t-shirts celebrating the most famous symbol of female empowerment

Wonder Woman 1984, the second film starring Gal Gadot in the role of the most famous superheroine ever, will open in theatres next October. Anticipating the release of the movie, Miu Miu celebrates the DC Comics character with a mini T-shirt capsule collection: three basic white items on which stand out three different images of Wonder Woman wearing her iconic costume which includes a red bustier with a stylized eagle on the front, blue hot pants with white stars and, instead of the classic ankle boots, red ballerinas.  

The Italian brand's choice to dedicate a collection to Wonder Woman is anything but casual. It offers new generations of young girls a positive model of female empowerment to draw inspiration from. Shaped in clay by her mother, Queen Hippolyte, and endowed with magical powers by Greek gods, the warrior pin-up, also known as Princess Diana of Themyscira and, in civilian identity, Diana Prince represents the epitome of the woman superheroine.

Not everyone knows that the psychologist William Moulton Marston and the cartoonist Harry G. Peters created Wonder Woman's character in December 1941 to give a symbol to women, a model that would be able to powerfully promote their ideas and their world, and, for this, they were inspired by the first activists of the women's rights campaign and, in particular, by the pioneer of the birth control movement Margaret Sanger. The result was a character with the same strength as Superman, but also loyal, brave, intelligent, good and sexy. 

The Miu Miu Wonder Woman capsule is available in selected brand boutiques and online at www.miumiu.com
