More than six months after their inaugural collaboration, Givenchy and Disney have reunited to create an all-new capsule collection featuring Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in honor of Lunar New Year and the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
For the occasion, Givenchy creative director Matthew Williams has brought Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey’s ancestor, back to life – created by Walt Disney and his studio artists, and known as the clever and fun-loving precursor to Mickey Mouse, Oswald is a first in the history of character animation.
For the first time in nearly 95 years, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, as The Walt Disney Company celebrates its 100th anniversary next year and we enter the new lunar year of the Water Rabbit, reappears in a brand new short film from Walt Disney Animation Studios: “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit” where the character travels all around the world, from New York to Paris, Los Angeles, Shanghai or Tokyo – a “one-of-a-kind world tour” that captures Oswald’s mischievous and energetic spirit and Givenchy aesthetic in a mixed capsule collection.
For men, the Givenchy x Disney Oswald capsule features a red teddy showing Oswald riding a wild horse to Los Angeles, a blue shirt with Oswald surrounded by bandana designs, jeans still featuring the character accompanied by a lucky red horseshoe. Also included are T-shirts with the letters Givenchy displaying key words and places, such as “Lucky” and “New York City“, sweatshirts and tracksuits showing Oswald ready to fight.
For women, there’sa blue varsity jacket with white sleeves with Givenchy and Paris lettering that accentuate placements showing Oswald the Lucky Rabbit offering a flower to his sweetheart, Ortensia. On a bright red oversized shirt and sporty short ensemble, Oswald appears jauntily astride a horse, singing all the way, in white framed by bandana-style prints. On must-have denims, the two characters return, this time in graffiti-style treatments, as multi-colored motifs on a jean jacket with Givenchy lettering and an emblematic 4G logo, and on jeans also decorated with musical quarter and eighth notes. T-shirts in pink, white, black, or red and black tie-dye convey messages of love and the magic of visiting Paris, while hoodies, tanks and track pants incorporate the 4G emblem stylized into a heart and the Magic Kingdom in dropout white.
A wide range of accessories completes the collection and includes Givenchy x Oswald sneakers, card holders, tote bags, small shoulder bags, phone and headphone cases, and caps.
