Maybe it's the flurry of superhero-themed summer blockbusters, but countless comic book and pop art-inspired pieces have been catching our eye of late. It started with 3.1 Philip Lim's The Break Up PVC pouch, which has been spotted on the arms of the coolest street style stars, and now Model's Own's Lichtenstein-esque nail wraps and cult label Lazy Oaf's Batman collection are on our wish list. Novelty prints and accessories are here to stay for Autumn/Winter 2012 (we love Burberry's owl print jumpers and Balenciaga's comic book sweaters), so here are 10 ways to embrace the kitschest of trends.
The clutch that started it all - The Break Up PVC pouch would be in our dream superhero wardrobe.
