Illumination and Universal Brand Development have collaborated with Italian luxury brand Moschino, to launch the Minions x Moschino Baby Kid Teen capsule collection, available now on Moschino.com. Illumination’s new feature film, Minions: The Rise of Gru, arrives in theaters 1 July.
Minion icons Bob, Stuart and Kevin meet the iconic Moschino Teddy Bear in a limited-edition capsule collection that includes sweatshirts, T-shirts, dresses, bags, swimwear, footwear and accessories for babies, kids and teens.
“The Minions x Moschino Baby Kid Teen capsule takes a joyful, fresh approach to Illumination’s beloved Minions by capturing their sweet and subversive nature and pairing it with the iconic Moschino Bear in a sophisticated collection,” said Stephanie Kraus, Senior Vice President, Global Lifestyle Design and Product Development, Universal Brand Development.
Italian luxury brand, Moschino was founded in 1983 and rose to the forefront of the international fashion scene through the ironic, tongue-in-cheek designs. In 2013, Jeremy Scott was appointed Creative Director and the brand hit a new high with his unexpected original designs that paid homage to Franco Moschino’s original concepts but were infused Scott’s unique vision and sartorial wit. Moschino S.p.A. is the owner of the Moschino brands. The company, which was a licensor of AEFFE S.p.A. since from the brand debut in 1983, was acquired by AEFFE S.p.A. in 1999.
