DreamWorks Animation continues to expand its footprint in the world of fashion through strategic partnerships with trendy fashion labels. A few days ago we wrote about the studio’s new Richie Rich collection in collaboration with Joyrich. Last Wednesday at Fashion Week in New York, goofball-funk fashion designer Jeremy Scott (a favorite of Miley Cyrus) unveiled his new Shrek collection for men and women.

This is not the first time Scott has emblazoned famous cartoon characters across his clothes. His 2012 collection applied patterns of Bart Simpson onto men’s sweaters and women’s hot pants. The Shrek collection de-emphasizes the ogre’s grotesqueness by using a more iconic representation of the character, but the pieces are still garish in Scott’s trademark fashion. It’s comprised of the following nine items: denim plaid shirt, embroidery knit cropped top, knit dress, knit skirt, knit crew-neck, Shrek Happens T-shirt, tie-dye tote, sweater, and zipper-front plaid bra.

The clothes are currently available on Jeremy Scott’s website, though some items like the $270 Shrek Pixel Sweater are currently sold out:

Shrek-adoring women are in luck though: the $325 Shrek Face Embroidery Knit Cropped Top is still available.

    Welp, it’s all ogre now.

    Shrek is love. Shrek is life.

      ^That viral video is a great example of how a commodity becomes part of our culture. Fan-created content shared for other fans to enjoy. This whole partnering up with fashion designers thing seems a bit too forced; Dreamworks wants to leave its mark in many facets of contemporary culture, but also wants to make money off of it too and it just doesn’t work that way. If I wanted a shrek shirt as a fan, I’d just make my own.

      And How to Train your Dragon is a God-damned Religion.
      Now, “All Glory to the Alpha!”

  • Who has been buying all of those overpriced sweaters?!

        He’s finally found his alternative to Laseter’s Hawaiian shirts!

  • No.

    If they put a Santa hat on Shrek on the Shrek Pixel Sweater it could be a big seller for ugly Christmas sweater parties.

  • Ara

    Meh, I’d buy it.

    Not for $270, though. More like $7.99 at a thrift shop.

  • Matthew Broussard

    Meh. I was ogre Shrek years ago.

    • Strong Enough

      it’s not ogre until it’s ogre

  • Mister Twister

    It’s not ogre?

  • Squidhead

    When is this line coming to Target?

  • Elf

    These DreamWorks fashion lines are pretty lame.

  • popyea

    Bring on the kitsch. It’s my favourite style of designer fashion I think.

  • fuiloop

  • Vabolo

    They’re sold out because people want to wear them in layers.

  • Mark Brackney

    Ouch.
