Disney and Coach have come together for a collaborative capsule that finds classic Disney princess tales morphed with a dark and romantic twist on Coach ready-to-wear and leather goods. All in all, the Pre-Fall 2019 collection looks to an American gothic fairy tale of New York for inspiration.
In playing on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty, retro T-shirts have been livened up with rock and roll fonts and a nostalgic color palette, paired with rugged moto jackets. Coach’s signature print has then been implemented alongside bold leather detailing, while hoodies, sneakers, and fanny packs welcome Disney-inspired patches.
“I have always loved Disney – both the movies and the fantasy worlds created that have captured my imagination for many decades,” says Coach Creative Director, Stuart Vevers. “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.”
The Disney x Coach “A Dark Fairy Tale” collection is due in Coach stores and online beginning Thursday, May 14.
