Designer Mychael Darwin — best known for creating one-of-a-kind limited edition leather jackets — and Disney Consumer Products are launching an all new outerwear collection in honor of Disney’s newest and first African American Princess, Tiana. Arriving in time for the Holiday ‘09 release of Walt Disney Pictures’ new animated film The Princess and the Frog, the collection is inspired by the warm textures and bright colors of the hand drawn animation of this highly anticipated animated film and will appeal to both the fashion conscious and the Disney devotee.
When asked about his design inspiration for the collection, Mychael Darwin said, “I drew from my own Southern upbringing, the richness of the film’s country landscapes and the beauty and grace from my own true life princess — my daughter. It was also important to me that I create a line that appeals to the inner desire of all women to be treated like royalty, specifically as they work hard to achieve their dreams.”
Mychael Darwin Denim & Leather for Disney for women, tweens and girls consists of limited edition Italian all-leather jackets with hand-carved .925 sterling silver buttons, featuring custom-printed leather with beautifully artistic background scenes reminiscent of The Princess and the Frog. The leather jacket collection uses a revolutionary proprietary printing technique known as Leathergenix©—which allows extraordinary artistic printing on supple leather. The collection also includes special edition premium denim jackets accented with Italian leather trims and jacket backs that feature original artwork from the film elegantly highlighted with hand-beaded Swarovski crystals.
