MTV has kicked off a raft of fashion collaborations celebrating the brand’s legacy. The highlight for edgy animation fans is the just-launched Lazy Oaf x Daria collection — 11 pieces inspired by the characters Daria, Jane and Quinn. The apparel & accessories line ranges from around $20 for accessories to about $120/$155 for jackets, and launched on www.lazyoaf.com October 25.
A new animated series Daria and Jodie from writer Grace Edwards (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Inside Amy Schumer), is in the works at MTV Studios.
The collection includes:
- Daria gear: Oversized “Sick Sad World” trucker jacket in forest green corduroy with removable shearling collar and pink logo; “I Don’t Like to Smile” yellow pleated kilt
- Jane duds: “Go to Hell Chore” relaxed-fit worker’s jacket with pizza patch; “I Hate Everybody” pants with raw hems and subtle ankle embroidery
- Quinn’s look: “Quinn Fitted Tee” featuring cut-out details and cute capped sleeves
- Plus, two oversized tees with screen-printed show art and meme-friendly Jane and Daria quotes, “I Hate Everybody” black tote bag, and a pack of three custom enamel pin badges.
