New Disney And Coach Collaboration
OH, MY GOODNESS!!! So as I sit here suffering from wonderful vertigo I happen upon a press release that is totally AMAZING and a must see for everyone. Being a huge, like HUGE Coach fan and Disney fan I had to share this with everyone.
Disney x Coach, a limited-edition collection featuring Mickey Mouse designs on Coach leather goods and ready-to-wear fashions. Mixing the irreverent with the iconic, the collection will launch exclusively in a specially-designed concept at the Coach store in Soho, New York and at Colette, the celebrated store on rue St. Honore in Paris. It will release on June 17th on coach.com and Coach stores worldwide.
The collection is part of a series of exclusive, limited-edition projects that celebrate American pop culture, and commemorate Coach’s 75th anniversary. Mickey Mouse’s vibrant personality shines through the collection, with specially created sketches by Disney animators. The exclusive artwork appears on t-shirts as well as signature Coach glove-tanned leather bags including the Saddle and the Dinky.
“Mickey Mouse is one of my earliest memories of American pop – his nostalgic charm, cheekiness, individuality and inherent cool make for the ultimate American icon,” said Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. “I’ve always seen Mickey as a playful rebel at heart and a timeless symbol of joy and creativity. That spirit reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
The range also includes sneakers featuring Coach’s signature hangtag playfully redesigned in the shape of Mickey’s ears. The Mickey ear silhouette is also marked out with punky studs on a biker jacket and a frame on a re-edition of an archival Coach bag from the 1960’s ‘the Kisslock’. Collectible pieces like oversized black leather Mickey dolls and shearling beanbags complete the offering.
I am so stinking excited about this new collaboration. I think it is fabulous that two of the most iconic brands are teaming up for this amazing collection. I had to email their rep and get some images to show you all!! What do you think?
