Continuing its long-term collaboration with Disney, the House of Givenchy led by Matthew M. Williams has put together a limited-edition capsule collection centered around 101 Dalmatians. A celebration of love and loyalty, Pongo, Perdita, and their pups from the iconic 1961 animated Disney film are featured throughout the second chapter of the ongoing collaboration.
The collection comes accompanied by a custom animation created by the legends of hand-drawn animation at Walt Disney Animation Studios featuring a special appearance by supermodel Kate Moss for fun and adventure in the City of Light. "The animation culminates at Givenchy on the Avenue George V where the dalmatians, accompanied by Matthew M. Williams and supermodel Kate Moss, admire the collection display in the store windows. Their moment of bliss is briefly interrupted by a surprise appearance from the notorious, Cruella De Vil, but she quickly flees after Pongo and Perdita stand their ground with a protective growl," Givenchy says in the description for the accompanying animation.
The special women's and men's range is comprised of ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, small leather accessories and fashion jewelry. Playful references show the puppies climbing through Givenchy lettering, Cruella De Vil sauntering by the windows of the historic Givenchy headquarters in Paris and Perdita wearing a G-Lock collar on street leaning pieces. Other standouts include ripped and repaired denim pieces featuring dalmatian-like black spots.
Accessories include leather collar G-Lock necklaces, printed wallets, card holders, and caps, along with 4G emblem footwear. Statement jewelry in silver-finish brass and enamel blends the worlds of Givenchy and 101 Dalmatians and serves to round up the capsule.
"To have the opportunity to tell a story and create new animation with the characters from 101 Dalmatians, through the imaginative and playful lens of the House of Givenchy, was an absolute dream. It was a true delight to collaborate with such talented creators to bring these beloved characters back to life in such a unique way," said renowned Disney director and 2D animator, Eric Goldberg.
Priced between $400 and $4,200 USD for ready-to-wear; $230 and $1,665 USD for accessories, and $335 to $575 USD for jewelry, the Disney x Givenchy 101 Dalmatians capsule collection is available from Givenchy and at select retailers now.
