The "I Wish to Be Entertained" hoodie is an ode to Queen Charlotte, the show's influential monarch, and to Shonda, the queen of television. "That's the Shonda sweatshirt," Meena explained. "It's not only a nod to the show itself. Everything we do is about taking the moment and then broadening it to a wider message or community. And to me, it encompasses everything about Shonda and her creative genius and her power. She wants to be entertained, so she goes and makes incredible, amazing shows, and we all get to benefit from that."
All this talk of Bridgerton quotes and characters, and you might wonder, who does Meena relate to most from the show? She said she finds herself especially drawn to Penelope Featherington AKA Lady Whistledown herself. "She's a complex character, and there's power in what she's doing," Meena elaborated. "I think she's finding her power in the world." She also gave a special shoutout to Eloise Bridgerton, "She doesn't ascribe to the traditions and norms of that society and is her own self."
I know the modern Penelope, Charlotte, Eloise, and Daphne's among us could benefit from the visit to the modiste to trade an empire waist dress for a much comfier sweatshirt. Prepare to dress the part as you uncover society's scandals, and shop Phenomenal x Bridgerton's full line, ahead.
