The brilliant Batman cowl art project

Black never goes out of style.

Which might go some way to explaining the enduring qualities of Batman's 75-year reign of justice. Some way. Like, an inch?

But what if the Dark Knight decided to change things up a bit? To give the old cape and cowl a makeover? 

To celebrate the forthcoming launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, Warner Bros. Games UK has commissioned a group of contemporary artists to have a crack at remodelling Batman's famed costume. From colourful capes to metal masks, the collection is set to be exhibited at Kachette, Shoreditch, London from 23 June - the same day the game swoops onto consoles.

Check out the gallery for an idea of just how fabulous Batman could look if he only let himself go a bit.
