We’ve taken part in some special partnerships over the years, but this is surely the highest-profile and most exciting to date. We’re incredibly proud to introduce Disney x Cath Kidston, a collaboration that launches with our first collection, Winnie-the-Pooh x Cath Kidston, on Monday 26th September.
We leapt at the chance to collaborate with Disney – one of the world’s most well-known and well-loved brands. We constantly look to our own Print Library for inspiration and classic prints to reinvent, and working with Disney gave us the opportunity – and privilege – to weave their iconic characters and deft illustrations into the fabric of our signature designs for the first time. The result is Disney x Cath Kidston – a series of one-off, limited edition collections featuring unique, joyous prints that bring the characters’ stories to life and celebrate the artistry and rich design and illustration heritage of both brands.
The first Disney x Cath Kidston collection is a tribute to the world’s most famous bear, Winnie-the-Pooh, just as he celebrates his 90th anniversary month in October. Our designers sourced the perfect individual character illustrations of Pooh and his loveable friends straight from Disney’s archive and seamlessly blended them into two favourite designs from our print portfolio. They also created a completely new print that’s inspired by our classic scenic designs and incorporates some of our famous florals alongside Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends. The prints play with colour and scale, brim with inventiveness, character and fun, and won’t fail to bring a smile to your face. We’ll be telling the stories behind each of them on launch day, so watch this space for more…
Although Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends are beloved children’s characters, we know that they hold a special place in the hearts of fans of all ages. As such Winnie-the-Pooh x Cath Kidston collection has a little piece of the Hundred Acre Wood for everyone and every home, with beautiful designs for women’s fashion and bags and homewares as well as the sweetest things for babies and kids…and it will all be available from Monday 26th September!
