MONSE Teamed Up With Disney For A Charity Collection That Supports An Important Cause
Attention all Disney lovers: You can now sport designer pieces featuring some of your favorite iconic characters thanks to the MONSE x Disney collaboration. The cool-girl brand unveiled its chic new collection of Disney-themed pieces on May 16. But not only will the collab's styles let you bring designer Disney duds into your wardrobe, they'll also give you the opportunity to support a worthy cause with your purchase, too.
The newly launched MONSE x Disney collection includes a range of pieces from tops and cardigans to denim featuring Disney's beloved Goofy and Pluto. As for why the two dog characters are the stars of the show? Well, it's because the collaboration is an extension of the initiative MONSE began for its Pre-Fall 2019 collection — the brand partnering with six pet rescue organizations in the New York City area to promote the adoption and fostering of rescue dogs.
"Dogs are family at MONSE, and are often seen running around the office," said MONSE founders, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, in a press release from the brand. "We knew we wanted our Pre-Fall collection to benefit this cause, so this was the perfect opportunity to highlight Pluto, who is a loveable dog just like many of the ones featured in our campaign."
Within the Disney collaboration, there are six items that are part of MONSE's Charitable Collection — a group of 12 pieces where 100 percent of gross proceeds (excluding sales tax) will be donated between each of the six participating charities: Animal Haven, Best Friends Animal Society, Bideawee, Rescue City, Rescue Dogs Rock, and Social Tees Animal Rescue. So, if you're eager to scoop up styles from the collaboration, the pieces that directly benefit dogs in need is a great place to start your shopping.
You can bring Pluto into your summer look in an elevated way with a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans for $800, or with the $1,250 oversized, light-wash denim jacket, which features the famous canine on the back. The jacket will make for a playful addition to your summer outerwear lineup, and can easily be tossed over the white Pluto Bandana Print Tee, $250, as well as the $350 black midi Pluto Bandana XL Printed Tee.
As for your upcoming getaways? It's always best to have a cozy sweatshirt on hand, and this relaxed, cropped style for $550 will match up well with your high-waisted denim shorts. And, don't forget to scoop up a little something for your favorite pup too. Ringing in for $150, the baby blue Pluto Dog Sweater will keep your furry friend toasty on chilly evening walks.
