A second limited-edition capsule collection celebrates love, loyalty, and high style in the City of Light, with a special appearance by Kate Moss.
For the second chapter in its long-term collaboration with Disney, the House of Givenchy is pleased to unveil a limited-edition capsule collection starring beloved characters from the iconic 1961 animated film Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. The collection will be accompanied by custom animation created by the legends of hand-drawn animation at Walt Disney Animation Studios featuring a special appearance by supermodel Kate Moss.
Designed by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams in collaboration with Disney, the Disney x Givenchy 101 Dalmatians capsule celebrates love and loyalty in high style as Pongo, Perdita and their pups set out for fun and adventure in the City of Light. Playful references abound in Disney prints portraying dalmatian puppies frolicking about on Givenchy's 4G emblem or romping over the balconies of the Hôtel de Caraman, the House’s landmark address on the Avenue George V in Paris. Cruella De Vil is also in town, sweeping through Paris's Golden Triangle with shopping bags over her arms.
Covetable, collectible pieces for women and men span ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, small leather accessories and fashion jewellery.
To further the creative storytelling between Givenchy and 101 Dalmatians, Givenchy worked alongside Disney animators at Walt Disney Animation Studios to create a custom animated short featuring the playful pups on a fanciful adventure throughout the streets of Paris. 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.
The animated video for this Disney x Givenchy 101 Dalmatians collection was overseen by Eric Goldberg, the renowned Disney director and 2D animator who brought to life such diverse and unforgettable characters as the Genie in Aladdin, the satyr Phil in Hercules, and Louis, the trumpet-playing alligator in The Princess and the Frog.
“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 Eric Goldberg
