The colorful tights often donned by superheroes in comic books may give them a clownish look from time to time, but the Romance Was Born SS12/13 collection takes that element up a notch or two. In addition to the typical vibrant hues used in these costumes, designer duo Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett introduce a lot of clashing prints for added pizazz and a bit of comedy. It is the bright red hair and exaggerated eyebrows that are quite reminiscent of Ronald MacDonald that really give the Romance Was Born SS12/13 collection a clownlike vibe.

Recently presented during the Australian fashion week (MBFWA), the Romance Was Born SS12/13 collection shows how superhero costumes are transformative and linked to a person's identity.
