It was initially announced last summer, but now comes word that TMNT x Melo, “a high-octane line of boys’ apparel and accessories inspired by the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” will debut exclusively at Macy’s this May. Created in partnership between Macy’s, Nickelodeon and NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony, this new collection is said to be “channeling the fearless energy of the crime-fighting foursome – a limited-time capsule collection that features graphic t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, pajama sets, and socks, as well as basketballs and an over-the-door basketball hoop so that kids can show off their inner Carmelo Anthony.”
”I grew up on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so to be able to partner on a boys’ collection with Nickelodeon and Macy’s goes beyond my wildest dreams,” said Anthony. “It’s been so fun collaborating on the designs for these tees, hoodies, shorts and more. I can’t wait for my young fans to check out TMNT x Melo and feel the excitement I had at their age for the Heroes in a Half Shell.”
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is adored the world over and Turtles’ superfan Carmelo Anthony, with his incredible athleticism and illustrious career, is an inspiration to generations of fans,” adds Durand Guion, Macy’s vice president/fashion director of men’s and kids’. “With the TMNT x Melo collection, we have tapped into the bravery, determination, and dynamism that have made the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles heroes and Carmelo Anthony an idol. Our collaboration with Nickelodeon has resulted in an incredibly fun and active-inspired lifestyle collection that kids are sure to love.”
The high-flying capsule collection will be available for a limited time only, launching in all Macy’s stores and macys.com in early May. Items will range in price from $20 to $35.
