Disney’s has collaborated with American Eagle for a nostalgic apparel collection inspired by the holidays.
The limited-edition collection features Disney characters including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and more. American Eagle’s 47-piece collection includes crew neck sweatshirts, t-shirts, hoodies, socks, pajama sets, accessories and more.
“Disney and American Eagle are two great, iconic brands and both are about celebrating optimism and making people feel good,” Chad Kessler, global brand president, American Eagle told WWD. “It’s obviously been a challenging year. Kids did not have the year that they planned and we’re all learning how to live and work in this new time. We really wanted this holiday to be all about optimism and connection and togetherness, reminding people that there’s a lot to be hopeful for, reminding ourselves that we have a lot in common.”
The campaign stars influencers popular with Gen Z including TikTok stars Addison Rae and Widsom Kaye. To celebrate the line’s release, Snapchat users can also use their mobile device’s camera to log on to American Eagle’s virtual store between Nov. 5 to Dec. 25.
“It’s an augmented-reality store on Snapchat,” says Kessler. “It looks like a 3-D store experience. So, you can look around [the store] through your phone and look at and shop the various products. It feels like they’re in an actual store.”
The American Eagle x Disney collaboration is available now. It joins other holiday collabs for the fashion brand including a Grinch collection with Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
