Vans enter partnership with Disney
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 7 June, 2015 - Cypress, California. – After unveiling the coveted collaboration a few weeks ago, Vans releases the Disney footwear and apparel collection today at Vans retail locations, vans.com/disney and select wholesale accounts. Sharing a rich heritage rooted in Southern California, both Vans and Disney are dedicated to those who are young at heart and never stop following their dreams.
The collection features iconic Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy and Winnie the Pooh across a range of Vans apparel and accessories and Classic footwear in adult, kids and toddler sizing.
Mickey Mouse and his pals Goofy, Donald and Pluto come together for the festive Mickey & Friends print that covers the Classic Patch Trucker hat, Old Skool II backpack, a Disney tank top, crew socks and single colorways of the Vans Era and Sk8-Hi Reissue.
Mickey Mouse gets his own character pattern pack that creates a head-to-toe ensemble from a snapback, crewneck, Disney long sleeve tee, Disney short sleeve tee and the Old Skool II backpack all the way down to a color-up of the Vans Classic Slip-On and a pair of Mickey Mouse crew socks.
Not to be outdone, the hot-headed-yet-lovable Donald Duck can be seen causing a ruckus in a similar assortment that includes the Authentic, Donald Duck crew socks, Old Skool II backpack, Disney short sleeve raglan, Disney short sleeve button-up and the reversible Donald Duck bucket hat.
Winnie the Pooh makes a cameo in the capsule and can be seen testing his skills as an aspiring skateboarder on an additional make-up of the Classic Authentic. Minnie Mouse brings the Disney Collection to a close with her own printed series for women that is highlighted on a Slip-On, the Minnie crew, Minnie raglan, Minnie Sad Happy raglan, Minnie Rocker tee, Disney Canoodle socks, Disney backpack, Disney trucker hat and Disney backpack keychain.
The capsule can be enjoyed by fans of all ages, with kid and toddler-sized takedowns of the Mickey & Friends Era, Winnie the Pooh Authentic, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Classic Slip-Ons. To celebrate the launch of this special project, Vans Surf team members Dane Gudauskas and Leila Hurst bring us to their happy place alongside Mickey Mouse and his pals for a special video that shows us what it means to be Young at Heart.
