Disney x DSW – “The Glass Slipper Collection”
Disney and DSW have come together to create a new line of evening and wedding fashion footwear, inspired by the Disney artist Mary Blair’s original art from the 1950′s “Cinderella” film. “The Glass Slipper Collection” uses textures, colors, fabrics that stay true to the French rococo-inspired scenery of the classic film. These limited-edition shoes bear an embossed carriage logo and a signature blue jewel on the sole, making them not only a great fashion statement, but a stylish collector’s item as well. Ranging in price from $59.95 to $89.95. The collection hits DSW stores and dsw.com at the stroke of midnight October 1, 2012, celebrating the release of Cinderella: Diamond Edition Blu-ray. I posted a few of the ones I thought were the most Cinderella-ish, the shoes come in a variety of bold colors but I kept it simple with the natural colors below.
“The inspiration for the line came from the vision of Disney artist Mary Blair’s original art for the film,” says Debbie Ferrée, Vice Chairman, EVP of Merchandising for DSW. “We took a close look at the film’s aesthetic details—the rich textures and fabric, the beautiful blue in Cinderella’s dress, even the French rococo-inspired scenery. Every whimsical touch featured in the footwear collection came right out of the film.”
“The Glass Slipper Collection captures the beauty and sophistication of Cinderella, tapping into the childhood affinity women have for this beloved character while creating footwear that is relatable to their lives as adults,” said Robert Oberschelp, Director, Disney Consumer Products.
