So when LeBron James revealed he was making his own “Space Jam” film, we immediately expected a style collaboration. Move over Cruella, there’s a new fashion king in town. While there’s a lot more to come, we’ve got a sneak peek at the Bloomingdales “Space Jam” pop-up collection featuring lounge wear, purses and home goods.
Titled “The Carousel @ Bloomingdale’s: It’s Game Time,” the new iteration of the retailer’s pop-up shop, available through Aug. 16, can be found on their website and in person, with the biggest outpost located at the retailer’s 59th Street flagship store in New York City.
In addition to designer pieces that incorporate the colors and graphics from the classic cartoons, the capsule also includes life-sized sculptures of LeBron James and Bugs Bunny, which will be unveiled on July 21, and limited-edition art prints that are set to go for as much as $1,700.
We rounded up the best, and most affordable pieces from the collaboration, including funky graphic tees, vibrant two-piece sets perfect for summer and trendy loungewear.
Beverly Hills Club Space Jam Sweatsuit
You can buy this playful sweatsuit as one matching combo or buy the sweatshirt and sweatpants separately for around $150 a piece. The back pocket features the “Space Jam” logo, above an image of a basketball-playing Bugs Bunny on the legs with “Mad Hoops” written in Beverly Hills’ sleek cursive lettering on the same leg. It also comes in a pastel pink version, which you can mix and match with.
Mr. Brainwash King James Print
This limited-edition oil painting of LeBron James is by the French street artist Thierry Guetta, known as Mr. Brainwash, and is going for $1,700. Silk-screened on archival paper, it shows the NBA star mid-hoop in a colorful Tune Squad jersey in front of a splatter-painted background that says “Follow Your Dreams.” It’s 24″ x 32″.
Apotheke Space 2 Candle
This bright blue candle has notes of moro orange and maple leaves to produce what they believe to be the smell of Serververse, the virtual space ruled by Don Cheadle’s AI-G Rhythm. Yes, that’s right they made a candle that smells like (what we’re assuming) is a fancy “Space Jam” internet.
Eleven Paris Toon Squad Sweatshirt
If you prefer a monochromatic wardrobe, then this black and white cartoon-printed sweatshirt from Eleven Paris is a more subtle way to rep the Toon Squad. The cotton pullover crewneck features simple iterations of everyone’s favorite “Looney Tunes” characters that star in the “Space Jam” sequel, in addition to ribbed hems and cuffs that give it a comfortable fit.
Prince Peter Tweety Tee
Sometimes simple is better. This minimal Prince Peter tee nods to the fictional Tune Town with a bright Tweety Bird graphic on the left breast. Pair with light blue jeans or shorts for an effortless summer outfit that gives a nod to the iconic animated character without being too obvious.
Bleacher Report Bugs Bunny Lakers Long Sleeve Tee
Bleacher Report makes showing athletic spirit less cheesy and more fashionable with this fun graphic crewneck touting the Los Angeles Lakers logo. The front shows Bugs Bunny spinning the Lakers’ yellow ball on one finger with a smirk on his face, while the back features his fellow Tune Squad players Lola Bunny, Daffy Duck and the Tasmanian Devil all jumping for a basketball. But if the Laker’s aren’t your team, then you can show spirit for the New York Knicks or Chicago Bulls with other tees offered in the extensive collection.
Bleacher Report Marvin Hat
Travel to the dark side with this purple Bleacher Report hat that features the infamous “Looney Tunes” villain Marvin the Martian. The central graphic shows the green extraterrestrial character spinning a basketball on his finger with raised eyebrows that give a menacing look. The classic baseball cap has an adjustable strap to fit a wide range of sizes.
Local Hoops Bugs Ball Tee
“Space Jam” gets an artistic twist in this premium white tee from Local Hoops. Bugs Bunny’s recognizable gloved hand pops out from a light blue square to spin a twirling colorful basketball designed in pastel hues.
Danielle Nicole Space Jam Lola Mini Backpack
Hot take: mini backpacks are better than purses. In functionality, convenience and now, with this new “Space Jam” version from Danielle Nicole, in style, too. Carry around the always-jubilant Lola Bunny as a good luck charm as she hoops over her “Space Jam” jersey number. Bright orange trim detailing, metallic and glitter embellishments and a pom-pom key tag detail make it a trendy and functional accessory to add to any outfit. If you have kids in the family that would appreciate a larger backpack for school though, they’ll make all their classmates jealous with this fun Bugs Bunny one from Sprayground.
