American Eagle Tees Up a Nostalgic Holiday Collection with Disney

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on demand through Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

Icons from the “happiest place on earth” help set a joyful tone in American Eagle’s (AE) new holiday collection.

Tapping into Gen Z’s thirst for nostalgia, the teen specialty retailer launched its first-ever collaboration with Disney last week. The limited-edition collection features Disney’s iconic characters including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and more.

The capsule represents a “genuine collaboration between two admired brands” and “honors Disney’s timeless characters paired with AE’s modern fabrics and approach to design,” American Eagle states.

In line with at-home fashion trends, the women’s line offers crew-neck sweatshirts and oversized tees adorned with both classic and festive graphics, a Sherpa hoodie and printed pajama sets.

Women’s denim also gets a mouse makeover. The Disney x AE boyfriend denim jacket boasts a black vintage wash and Mickey Mouse graphic on the back. Distressed mom jeans are patched up with Disney-themed fabrics.

The men’s collection styles include co-branded graphic hoodies, T-shirts and long-sleeve tees with vintage graphics, holiday-themed pajamas and a range of boxer briefs.

Unisex accessories like black-and-white Mickey Mouse-print sneakers, novelty socks, beanies and a watch round-out the Disney x AE collection.

AE bowed the collection with a wintery animation-inspired campaign starring TikTok star Wisdom Kaye and Addison Rae, who starred in the brand’s back-to-school campaign. The campaign also spotlights AE’s core holiday assortment including sherpa jackets, oversized fleece hoodies, moisture-wicking jackets and men’s Airflex+ jeans.
