Hey Fashion Fans! There have been teasers for months about the possibility of a Disney/Coach collaboration. Following the release of the Kate Spade collection, rumors only grew.
Well, sometimes rumors turn out to be true!
On June 17th, Disney and Coach are launching a limited-edition collection featuring Mickey Mouse designs on everything from Coach’s leather goods to ready-to-wear, and beyond. The collection will be sold on coach.com and at Coach stores worldwide. And if you live in New York or Paris, consider yourself extra lucky. Beginning TODAY you can shop the collection a full week in advance at Coach’s SoHo store at Colette.
The Disney x Coach collection will feature the best from both brands; classic lines and silhouettes from coach with fun and whimsy from Disney. Disney animators were even called in to help with the sketches and designs.
My personal favorites from the Disney x Coach collection are the saddle bags. These look like such a great everyday bag. From the size, to the classic silhouette, to the iconic Mickey Mouse sketches – these bags are sure to sell out quickly. My favorite is the yellow. It’s such a great, bright color for summer, but also a great hue to travel into fall.
If you are looking for a more streamlined work-bag, the shopper style is available in subtle brown and black.
“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,” says 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,” he adds.
The sheer number of items in the collection shows just how long Coach has been working on this collaboration in secret. “It’s fun to do something you don’t tell anyone about, sort of buy-it-now, a big surprise! Fashion should be like that.” And why this mouse, these bags, these tees, right now? Vevers says laughing. “You go straight to what you love.”
The line also includes leather display cases holding rare Mickey comic books, tee shirts, shoes, jackets, coasters, and frames. From handbags to home goods, Coach has provided a little Disney magic for everyone!
Remember, the collection launches on June 17th and is sure to sell out quickly. If you are interested in one of these amazing bags, make sure to jump online right away. Now all I have to figure out is how to sneak home one more Disney purse without my boyfriend noticing…
