The Disney by: Patterson J.

The collection is comprised of easy, knit pieces ranging from effortlessly cool tank tops to hip oversized sweatshirts and stylishly distressed T-shirts that fit like an old favorite.
“The Patterson J. Kincaid girl is a vintage lover who spends her time outdoors being playful,” says Jane Siskin, President and CEO of Jaya Apparel Group. “Also nostalgic and whimsical as many of Disney’s stories, we knew the Patterson J. Kincaid consumer would love a collection that brought to life cherished childhood memories. Bambi’s woodsy aesthetic and precious visuals made it the perfect choice to kick off the collection.”

From Bambi’s first steps on a frozen pond to Thumper’s playful energy and Flower’s feminine sweetness, all the character art was carefully selected for their unique traits also embodied by the Patterson J. Kincaid adorer.
