Look Like an ‘SNL’ Character for Only A Few Hundred Bucks

January 20, 2015

Saturday Night Live is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary season with…a line of expensive, designer clothing at Sak’s Fifth Avenue?

SNL Saks CollaborationThese aren’t exactly replica costumes, but high-end, designer-made, and fairly expensive articles of clothing and accessories inspired by famous SNL sketches and characters.

  • SNL High-Waist Plaid Shorts. Remember “the Nerds” from ’70s SNL, portrayed by Gilda Radner and Bill Murray? Radner’s character attended Catholic school, and Alice + Olivia created these school uniform-like plaid shorts. ($333)
  • SNL Chamber Wool Vest. About 20 years later, Molly Shannon played clumsy Catholic schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher. Rag & Bone’s vest-and-skirt combo pays tribute. ($395)
  • SNL Stretch Silk Mixed-Print Dress. Made by Suno, it’s just like the brightly-colored little-girl dress Kristen Wiig’s mischievous (if not evil) Gilly character wore. ($695)
  • SNL Dylan Cropped Varsity Sweatshirt. Elizabeth and James contributed this V-neck sweatshirt with the number 40 on it, recalling the cheerleading outfits of Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri’s Spartan Cheerleaders. ($245)
  • SNL Leather Track Shorts. These Alexander Wang originals will make you look just like Mango, Chris Kattan’s hypnotic pixie dancer. ($650)
  • Marley SNL Ribbed Wool Beanie. Think this is just an off-white knit hat? Nope—Eugenia Kim designers made this hat after being inspired by the Coneheads. ($225).

It’s not just clothes commemorating SNL—it’s ice cream. Last fall, Ben & Jerry’s introduced two new ice cream flavors inspired by recent SNL sketches. Lazy Sunday is made up of vanilla cake batter ice cream with cupcake pieces. (In the original faux-rap Digital Short, Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell detail a day spent in New York, culminating in a trip to Magnolia Bakery, because it has “all the bomb frostings.”) The other: Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch. It’s chocolate and sweet cream ice creams with caramel clusters, almonds, and marshmallows.
