For the third limited edition Disney x Cath Kidston collection, we’ve joined forces with Disney’s iconic “101 Dalmatians”. The 101 Dalmatians x Cath Kidston collection launches on Thursday 25th May, but in the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek at our new arrivals!
There were many design similarities between our brand and Disney’s “101 Dalmatians” that inspired us when we were creating this collection: dog prints are some of our most popular designs and dalmatians are covered with spots, another of our classic print motifs! The dalmatians also share our London hometown, though Disney’s iconic animated film was set in the swinging 60s. The film’s beautifully stylized artwork was a rich source of inspiration for our print designers when they created the five brand new Disney x Cath Kidston prints that make up the collection. These blend our own print artwork with original illustrations sourced once again from Disney’s archive. Where we couldn’t find the perfect puppy pose, Disney’s illustrators created brand new bespoke dalmatian drawings just for our prints.
Look out for more characters from the film set against London scenes from our print library and an abundance of our trademark roses, plus playful puppies galore and spots aplenty, all drawn in a bold, modern style. The limited edition collection includes women’s fashion and accessories as well as designs for home and kids.
There will be a private, password-protected early release of the 101 Dalmatians x Cath Kidston collection online on Thursday 25th May. To receive “pup-dates” about the collection and the password to shop online on 25th May, sign up to the Disney x Cath Kidston Priority Email Club here. (If you already signed up for the Winnie-the-Pooh or Mickey Mouse collections there’s no need to join again – we’ll keep you up to date!)
The 101 Dalmatians x Cath Kidston collection will also be available to buy in selected UK stores on Thursday 25th May – find your closest early launch store here and plan your visit. The collection will then go on general UK release online and in all UK stores on Friday 26th May.
If you’re planning to shop online, we recommend creating a customer account here and making sure your address details are up-to-date to ensure as smooth and speedy a checkout as possible. Adding items to your basket will not reserve them and demand is likely to be very high. As before, there will be a purchase limit of five units on any one item, and, as the collection is limited edition, it won’t be possible to use any discounts or promotional codes when purchasing these special pieces.
Stay tuned for “pup-dates” on the blog, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook over the coming weeks, and make sure you’re signed up to the Disney x Cath Kidston Priority Email Club. Get ready to meet our new arrivals and give these puppies loving homes!
