Get ready Disney Fans, today, two American visionaries join forces for Disney x Coach A Dark Fairy Tale.
The special-edition collection, featuring womens and mens bags, shoes and ready-to-wear, merges classic Disney Princess tales with a dark and romantic twist on Coach ready-to-wear and leather goods. Found and styled within the brand’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection, the pieces play with spooky undertones and the tension of nostalgic Disney animations to create a halo collection for the season inspired by an American gothic fairy tale of New York.
This collaboration gives classic motifs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty a dark edgy twist. Think dark and dreamy castles, poisoned apples and wide-eyed woodland creatures. Retro t-shirts with rock-and-roll fonts and a nostalgic color palette are styled with tough moto jackets and authentic Coach American sportswear – jersey hoodies, sneakers and fanny packs are emblazoned with Disney inspired patches and embellishments.
The special-edition collection will celebrate Coach and Disney’s third collaboration, an on-going relationship which is both personal and a continuing inspiration to Coach Creative Director, Stuart Vevers. Vevers stated, “I have always loved Disney – both the movies and the fantasy worlds created that have captured my imagination for many decades. It was fun to explore the darker side of these stories and mix Disney’s nostalgic charm with Coach’s creativity to bring my memories from these fairy tales to life within our world of accessories and ready-to-wear. The Disney spirit truly reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
Mixing the irreverent with the iconic, Disney x Coach: A Dark Fairy Tale will launch globally on May 14 in Coach stores and on coach.com.
Here is a peek at some of my favorites from the collection.
