Bloomingdale's Is Getting a Nintendo "Let's Play" Spring Fashion Line

Fandom is taking more of a hold in fashion, and Bloomingdale's is the next source of a Nintendo-themed spring line of items.  The collection is titled "Let's Play" and features recognizable characters and items from some classic Nintendo SNES titles like Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart, Donkey Kong, and more.

The spring collection will apparently consist of multiple pieces from different brands, which makes this more than just a normal themed release. According to NintendoWire, the following brands have announced as being a part of Let's Play: Sovereign Code, Onia, Original Penguin, Gitman Vintage, Barneys Cool, Bricktown, and Herschel, S'well, Sunnylife, and Funboy.

Here's some of the items you can expect to see when the line goes live later this month:

This fab Donkey Kong button-up shirt
A baseball hat with the invincibility star
A pullover sweatshirt featuring the classic Mario baddie, the Piranha plant in its tube.
The item I'm personally hoping might come in a size small enough to fit me for HawaiiCon reasons, Mario Kart swim trunks! (No mentions of available sizes on any of these predominantly male items)
A pullover sweatshirt featuring a Boo
These adorable Yoshi dress socks
This simple hoodie featuring the sizeup red mushroom and the 1up green mushroom
Oh look, FINALLY a product for a woman. With a heart on it?
A pixel art purse featuring Mario's girlfriend, Princess Peach. Because obviously women wouldn't want any of the other items.
This AMAZING leather coat
Another pullover sweatshirt, this time with the sizeup red mushroom
This pullover hoodie featuring Luigi and a Mario Kart logo
These Mario Kart themed purses, that look really tiny.

"Let's Play" will debut on March 10th, and while the collection isn't live on the Bloomingdale's website yet, you can bookmark the link for when it does here.
