Calling all members of the ton: Bridgerton-inspired merch has made its way into the world, and like the seasons’ debutantes, won’t be on the market for long!
Announced on February 25, Netflix has co-created a loungewear collection inspired by the record-smashing period drama in collaboration with, Phenomenal, a US-based female-powered lifestyle brand that brings awareness to causes and cultures,
The brand, which is 100% owned and run by Black and brown women, allowed Lady Whistledown herself to break news of the cute collection, which is composed of colourful hoodies and sweatshirts bearing classic Bridgerton lines uttered by the show’s female characters, including Queen Charlotte and Lady Whistledown herself (and yes, Daphne’s “I burn for you” is also included).
“Dear Reader, there is news about the ton. It appears that Phenomenal has uttered word about a new collaboration with Netflix’s Bridgerton. Make haste. Swipe to uncover the new merchandise,” ‘Lady Whistledown’ wrote in the caption on Phenomenal’s announcement Instagram.
“Bridgerton symbolises the Phenomenal messaging around ambition for 2021 by centring dynamic, female characters who don’t conform to society’s limited views of who and what women should be,” an official press release for the collection stated.
Aside from Daphne’s impassioned “I burn for you”, the featured quotes also include “I wish to be entertained”, “If there’s a scandal, I shall uncover it” and “Dear reader”. The range, which is to be expanded in the future, currently boasts four sweatshirts and hoodies in a size range of S to 3XL, with each piece retailing for an approximate AUD $75.

Clothes aside, if your withdrawals for all things Regency era have not yet been assuaged, there are a number of shows like Bridgerton you can watch, including Sanditon, a series set in the same era based on an unfinished novel by Jane Austen.
Or, of course, you can always binge Bridgerton again—this time in its comfy new loungewear.
