Gucci Celebrates The Year of The Pig with Disney

February 5 marks the start of the Chinese New Year and Italian fashion house Gucci is celebrating the year of the pig with a special 35 piece Disney inspired collection.

A symbol of good luck and wealth, the pig also one of Disney's oldest cartoon shorts.  The Three Little Pigs was released on May 27, 1933 and Gucci has taken the iconic illustrations and turned them into a fun, whimsical collection.

The collection is further proof that Gucci loves Disney.  In his Spring 2017 collection, Alessandro Michele designed a men's sweater collection featuring Donald Duck.  More recently, a Mickey Mouse handbag wowed the crowd during Gucci's SS19 runway show.

The collection includes women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, small leather goods, shoes, and jewelry. The playful cartoon characters will also appear on Gucci's classic ACE sneakers and Supreme backpacks.

The pricing on the collection is typical Gucci. Prices start at $250 (socks).  The tote (my favorite piece in the collection) is also the most expensive.  It will set you back $1,980 and the back pack runs a cool $1,690.  

Personally I can't decide if I'd rather have the Gucci Tote or a cute real little piggy of my own.  Hopefully if 2019 lives up to
tradition and good fortune rains down on me I'll get one of each!
