Columbia Sportswear and Disney are teaming up to celebrate a century of Disney storytelling with a special-edition collection of gear built to explore the wonder of the outdoors. The lineup of outerwear, sportswear and accessories is inspired by vintage Disney artwork from the 1930s and is adorned with iconic characters Disney’s Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto enjoying a snow day. The special edition collection is available in both youth and adult styles and is launching on the exact 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
Honoring the heritage of these iconic brands, designers were able to access vintage Disney artwork from the 1930s. Designed to keep the whole family warm and protected in chilly conditions, the collection features details that both Disney and outdoor enthusiasts will love, including stowable “mouse ears” on the jacket and premium silver details throughout the collection, including a thoughtfully-crafted, raised-silicone Disney100 patch and Columbia logo to honor Disney’s platinum anniversary.
The complementary styles make for a picture-perfect family moment during their next outdoor adventure. Among the special touches reflected in the collection, the lining of the insulated jackets features a customized new take on Columbia’s award-winning Omni-Heat™ reflective. Columbia’s designers have adjusted the traditional reflective round dots of the lining and turned them into silhouettes in the shape of Mickey Mouse. This fun detail will bring smiles as people wear the coat, and plenty of warmth as well.
Columbia’s special-edition Disney100 Collection includes:
DISNEY100 SNOWQUALMIE™ JACKET (MSRP: $300) – A special edition puffer with Omni-Heat™ lining technology reimagined as tiny thermal-reflective Mickey Mouse head silhouettes to keep you warm in the cold. Zippered hand pockets, an adjustable hood and hem, and stow-able mouse ears on the hood deliver extra comfort and fun. Available in adult sizing.
DISNEY100 HALF-SNAP FLEECE (MSRP: $90) – A cozy fleece with a print inspired by vintage Disney artwork from the 1930s. A half-snap closure, zippered chest pocket and stretch at the cuffs deliver extra comfort and utility. Available in women’s, men’s (regular and extended), youth and toddler sizes.
DISNEY100 BUCKET HAT (MSRP: $50) – A bucket hat for children that celebrates the magic of Disney and the outdoors in comfort and style. Features include a raised-silicone Disney100 patch, fleece-print brim inspired by vintage Disney artwork and an adjustable chin strap.
