2018 was the year of Disney throwbacks, and what a year it has been! As we draw closer to the end, we have taken a moment to reflect on some of our favourite highlights of 2018.
We were super excited to catch up with an old, honey loving bear and his small gang of friends from the Hundred Acre Woods in Christopher Robin. The new live action film had us giggling but also, tugging at the heartstrings as the film encouraged us grown-ups to remember what it’s like to find your inner child. In a fast paced world so serious, Pooh and his friends delivered a strong message, to always believe in you! As a young Christopher Robin once said ‘You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think'.
Then, only a few weeks ago of course, we celebrated the 90th Anniversary of a very special mouse. On November 18th 1928 the world met a little mouse in a short film called Steamboat Willie created by Walt Disney himself and his older brother Roy O. Disney. This film was considered to be the debut of Mickey Mouse to the big screen and now, 90 years later, his cheeky and mischievous personality lives on.
Along with the rest of the world, our team here at Couture Kingdom joined in the celebrations releasing our fun and quirky Anniversary Collection celebrating ‘The True Original’.
Bringing back some old school Mickey styling with our Showman Necklace and introducing some new, more modern designs like the Mickey Mouse Glove Drop earrings (which are also one of our top picks for the year)! It was our way to say thank you to the Mouse who started it all. The mouse who represents so much joy, memories and stories we have all grown to love and cherish today.
2018 was an incredible year, but we have so much to look forward to in 2019. As we experience the return of a no nonsense, warm hearted Nanny, in Mary Poppins Returns; We will take a magical carpet ride through Aggrabah, and once again visit the Pride Lands; But as we have never seen them before. Not to worry though, Couture Kingdom will be there with you every step of the way to help you enjoy it all with some sparkle and shine!
