Fashion Weak: Mighty Morphin Marina

In a boon for moneyed Power Rangers cosplayers the world over, Marina Abramović has partnered with the internet fashion concern Net-a-Porter to produce “Energy Suits.” Though prices have not yet been announced, it’s hard to put a dollar value on such magnetic apparel — and we’re not just referring to the gravitational pull of nostalgia. The “Energy Suits”  contain magnets placed within the garments to do something incredible for the body that is no doubt verified by medical science (experience may vary for those with Pacemakers).

Abramović joins George Condo, Terence Koh, Vik Muniz, and Mickalene Thomas in designing “wearable art” for the line. “The whole point was to challenge people’s ideas about what we’re doing,” Net-a-Porter’s fashion director Holli Rogers told Style.com. “It’s art, it’s fashion, and you can wear it if it suits you.”
