King Ice and Warner Bros. Consumer Products to Release Suicide Squad Themed Jewelry Line
King Ice, a leading men’s jewelry brand, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, will release an 8-piece character collection based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure film Suicide Squad. The line will provide fans another way to interact with their favorite characters, including The Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn and more.
King Ice will develop a series of 3D-design pendants, each built to match the flare and imagery of these iconic characters, from The Joker’s sinister laugh to Batman’s iconic cowl. The goal and direction of the line aims to target both casual and hard core fans alike while allowing King Ice to exercise its artistic creativity to match the attributes and look of each individual character.
Unlike other jewelry lines King Ice makes, the Suicide Squad collection will use carbon fiber as its base material, giving the pendants both durability and a lightweight feel. Meanwhile, the matching bail will provide a large enough opening for 2.5mm Franco chains that the jewelry company will pair with each piece. The line will target the contemporary and streetwear jewelry industries for men ages 18+.
According to Cuong Diep and Derek Belay, co-owners of King Ice, “We felt doing a collection for Suicide Squad could give fans of the film something unique. More importantly, it would give us a chance to work with some of the most iconic characters in the DC Universe.”
