Summer Dooney & Bourke Release Update

| May 16, 2013 | 2 Replies

Earlier in the month, I let all of my fellow “Dooney-lovers” know that two new prints were set for release this summer. The black and white Comics Collection and vibrant Mickey Text Collection have received mixed reviews, but with that being said, I have a few more tidbits to share with you about their release. Who doesn’t love finding out what’s in store?

Featuring a jazzy colorful font and dozens of Mickey and Minnie symbols, the Mickey Rainbow Letter Collection (official name) will be available in both black and white backgrounds. Although I am a fan, the dark background received some criticism because it did not necessarily fit in with the theme of bright summer days. The white version is perfect for those looking to add some color to their wardrobe, but without going for something that is too bold. Surprisingly enough, the white background Dooney will only be available in the Letter Carrier style and sold online beginning June 3. Doing so has me wondering if we will see the design in other styles at Disney Parks later in the year based on its popularity; only time will tell.

The black silhouette Rainbow bags will debut May 25 in Tren-D, an eclectic fashion shop in Downtown Disney. Styles include a large Pocket Tote, Satchel, Pocket Satchel, and Tablet Sleeve, the latter being a somewhat new item. The prices of the bags and sleeve range from $295-$90. Perhaps the most exciting part of the release is that Ian Ray, Dooney & Bourke Creative Director, will be on hand from 11:30-1:30 pm for a special appearance and signing. Likewise, Tren-D is hosting another “Sample Sale” of never released bags on this day which adds to the fun. This proves to be a great morning of shopping, but make sure to get there early to purchase your bag before they sell out. There is nothing worse than arriving at a signing to find that the products have all been purchased.

I hope these snippets of news wet your appetite a bit until the release! Let me know what you think of the white version of the Rainbow Collection by posting your thoughts below. Until next time, get shopping!

 

UPDATE: Disney Merchandise has announced that there has been an unforeseen delay. The white letter carrier will not be available until the very end of the month.

    I have a few Disney Dooney’s and I must say these are not my faves. Not too keen on the black and white I just saw online either. I love my retro satchel and the mickey balloons are my too faves.
