Check Out All the Muppets Movie Merch–From $595 Miss Piggy Shoes to Weird Fuzzy Hoods
LOOOVE the Muppets!!! Their new movie, the eponymously titled The Muppets, opens November 23 and a media onslaught is in full gear. It’s all about the merch tie-ins, and this one lends itself particularly well to the concept. Miss Piggy et al have already inspired beauty lines (MAC and OPI) and a hipster clothing collection (Opening Ceremony). Everything from designer shoes to quirky t-shirts to iPod accessories are coming down the pike; most are available now for mass consumption.
The offerings range from $595 Miu Miu-esque pink Jerome C. Rousseau glitter pumps which will be available at Saks in January, to a range of $20 t-shirts at Threadless. (The spread of hipsters wearing Muppet tees on Threadless is particularly amusing.) You can also get girly jewelry with huge pink stones from Noir (prices range from $100-$175). Of all the Muppet-marketed fashion items, the Kermit Adidas Originals have to be our favorite. That green felt collar/tongue just kills us.
Even if you adore the Muppets, will you wear any Muppet gear?
