British designer Cath Kidston recently teamed up with Disney to create a new range featuring the beloved character Winnie the Pooh – and friends, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore, a one-off edition that launches today. So if you’re fond of the designer’s trademark floral prints and equally cannot resist the adorable naive and friendly bear then keep an eye out for the exquisite new designs on the high street or alternatively at the brand’s website.
The designer has been incredibly successful in her career and currently produces a wide variety of items from cushions to mugs to wallpaper. All showpiece the vintage style thanks to which she made a name for herself. It was remarked that this collaboration with Disney will only enhance the intricacy of Kidston’s style with from what can be seen, designs as subtle and beautiful as ever. The prints are “unique and joyous” and “bring the characters’ stories to life”.
Since Kidston’s designs and the art of Disney are both equally as enchanting and ethereal, the merging of the two was always bound to produce an enticing concoction of artistry. The Winnie the Pooh character was created by the author A.A Milne and took off to huge and continued appeal all around the world. This collection features some of the established art sources from Disney’s archive, weaved with some of Kidston’s most cherished prints when others however, are brand new illustrations of the character and his friends.
The collection consists of homewear, fashion items and more and it launches right on time for Winnie the Pooh’s 90th anniversary. While the prints might not be to everyone’s taste, the fact that a second collection being launch in December based on – you guessed it – Mickey and Minnie Mouse, certainly raises the novelty factor up a notch!
