Happy Halloween, this is one of those goofy two-day posts, we’re so busy it’s unlikely we’ll be able to pop back in for a visit until Wednesday. We begin today with news of yet another collaboration, this one between two powerhouses, Disney and Tommy Hilfiger.
The “Meet the Family” capsule collection features a raft of Disney characters, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto dressed in the Tommy Hilfiger spring children’s collection.
The collection is not going to be sold in the US, it will be available primarily in Europe and South America. The WWD story quotes Mr. Hilfiger:
“Disney…has a lifestyle and core values that are aligned with our brand,” said Hilfiger. “It was a true honor and joy to be the first designer to give a preppy spin to the looks of our favorite Disney characters.”
The designs do look cute. (How about that hair on the young man in the green tee below right, it’s positively Bieberesque.)
Speaking of collaborative efforts, there are two very large such partnerships about to hit stores.
Because of all the pink we couldn’t help but write about Versace for H&M lands in stores in a few weeks, how lovely is this piece?
As one would expect with Versace, there is no shortage of bright colors.
This collection is not for the faint of heart.
(I don’t know about you, but I have a serious crush on that pink shirt.) There are 87 pieces in the group, it launches November 17 at H&M.
Click here to see the entire lookbook at Racked.com or here for H&M’s Facebook album. This one strikes me as a line that could go the way of Missoni at Le Boutique Targét, it seems to have very high sellout potential.
The other sizable collaboration we mention is Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku for Target line, we’ll have more on that later this week. In the meantime, a quick update on two other design partnerships the ‘cheap chic’ retailer is doing:
Albertus Swanepoel for Target is now in stores and online, below we show three different hat styles.
Also available now in stores and online, the Josie Natori for Target collection.
Josie Natori for Target is in stores now through Dec. 22, with a second group of merchandise being offered Jan. 1 through February 23.
A quick note from the good folks at Jack Rogers.
The company has debuted its new Highlands Rain Boot, it looks cute as can be, and very practical as well. Fans of the brand may be interested to learn Jacks are on sale through 11am Wednesday at flash sale site Rue La La. Obviously the brand new Highlands is not included (there are no boots), there isn’t an enormous selection, but still worth a peek if you are in the market. (If in need of an ‘invite’ to Rue La La, just click here.)
With apologies to our Facebook friends who may have already seen this, we had to share a comment seen on Twitter multiple times this afternoon:
Kim Kardashian sold the rights to her wedding for $17.9 million. Her marriage lasted 72 days. That comes to a nifty $10,358.80 per hour.
I feel less-than-prep for even writing about the topic, but the woman is one of our original members of the Anti-Prep Wall of Shame. A meritorious member we might add, for she never fails to disappoint.
We leave you with much cheerier sights, more seasonal in nature. First, our friend Leslie (aka Southern Social) is stunning in a Princess manner of speaking, she looked lovely for this weekend’s Halloween parties.
That wasn’t the only Kate Middleton costume seen this year, not by a long shot. Below, Al Roker and Matt Lauer were part of the fun in the Today Show’s royal wedding reenactment.
We love the Tipsy Skipper’s pumpkins.
And we love an argyle pumpkin: we haven’t been able to identify those on the left, the group on the right is from Horchow.
This beautiful group is from the folks at Lilly Pulitzer Palm Beach Gardens.
Here are two more beauties, these are by the talented ladies at The Pink Palm in Richmond.
This classic duo by Susan Trader is always fun to see.
With that we say Happy Halloween, may all of your candy be fresh!
