Rumors have been swirling for months about a Disney and Coach collaboration and now we can confirm that the rumors are 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 as well as at Coach stores.
If you are in New York and Paris, consider yourself very lucky because you can shop the collaboration today! That’s right, the Disney x Coach collection is available a full week early at Coach’s SoHo store and at Colette.
The collection will feature the classic lines of Coach with Disney style thrown into the mix. Disney animators were contacted to help with the sketches. Have to make sure the ear to purse ratio is just right, after all! The classic Coach silhouette with the addition of Mickey ears is just too perfect for words. I love the classic Mickey Mouse red and the more subdued camel color.
“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.
Besides bags and purses, the line will also include graphic tees, sneakers, jackets, dolls and beanbags. The line will also includes a leather display cases holding rare Mickey comic books (and with a mouse on their spines), coasters, and frames. It’s interesting that for this initial launch Coach has branched away from there famous bags to also include apparel and homes goods. This is a testament to how long the Coach team has been working on this collaboration in secrecy!
“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,” says Vevers.
I’m a little underwhelmed at the tee shirt simplicity. I would rather save the money and put it towards another purse from the collection!
These shopper style bags have a clean and sleek look with a subtle Mickey graphic near the bottom.
I saved my favorite for last! These saddle style bags are amazing! Available in red, white, or yellow, you can show off your Disney style without going overboard. My favorite is the yellow bag – bright and cheerful for summer but also a great color for fall as well! I like how Mickey Mouse is featured in a different pose on each bag; this really works to show off the many sides and personalities of Mickey.
This collection is sure to sell out quickly, so make sure to set a calendar alert for June 17th and jump on the Coach website right away. You know we will be there!
