>> If you’re a true Disney aficionado, then it’s not just the saccharine colour schemes, the happy clap-trap songs and love-and-beauty-will-prevail sentiment that gets you going. You have to love the villains, the weird and the truly potentially tripping-on-something vibes that Disney films can give off. And so in Coach’s latest collaboration with Disney, in continuation of their tie-up with the most American of icons, things develop into a “Dark Fairy Tale”, and predominantly centre around the older and for me, most haunting films – Snow White & and the Seven Dwarves and Sleeping Beauty. More often than not, in my head the Evil Queen and Maleficent merged into one pointy-faced, high cheekboned, purple eye-shadow wearing hybrid. Thankfully no snarling villainesses feature in the collection. Just a poisoned apple, some evil eyes and a gothic font that spell out “Dopey” or ” Sleepy”, as well as the painterly trippy scapes of those early Disney films, when backgrounds were impressionistic. They feature as patches on Coach’s stable collecgtion of Rogues, Dinky’s, totes and revived Coach signature logo duffles, as well as intarsia knits, t-shirts, parkas and hoodies, appropriately sloganned for those days when you want to fully tug on the drawstring toggles.
