In celebration of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh’s entrance into the public domain earlier this year, cult NYC fashion label Rowing Blazers has revealed a dedicated capsule collection inspired by the timeless character.
The capsule hosts preppy leisurewear decorated with emblematic imagery from the renowned classic, including heavyweight rugby jerseys, cotton mesh piqué polo shirts, a French terry loopback crewneck sweatshirt, a T-shirt, mesh shorts and corduroy hats. The collection, which is made in Portugal, tells a youthful color story with stark tones of red, pink, green, navy and white. Meanwhile, each design dons a good-natured illustration of Winnie-the-Pooh, some of which see the famed cartoon bear stuck in a honey pot and others showcase Pooh happily holding hands with Piglet.
“Scholars like Alison Lurie have written about the universal appeal of A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh, especially among ‘social outsiders’, and about the Edenic quality of its setting, The Hundred Acre Wood,” creative director and founder of Rowing Blazers Jack Carlson said in a statement. “What I know is that I’ve always identified with Pooh’s kindness, creativity, and love for humming, poetry, and constant snacking.”
Rowing Blazers’ Winne-the-Pooh collection is now available to shop on the brand’s website. Prices range from $48 USD to $195 USD. Take a look at the full range in the gallery above.
