Disney and Chopard have come together to produce a jewellery collection inspired by the most famous Disney princesses. Nearly 90 years old, Disney has managed to retain its youthful idealism, creating characters loved by audiences of all ages. Chopard has worked with Disney before and last year presented the Happy Mickey collection. Now Chopard has taken that iconic character of the Disney brand, the princess, and transformed her into jewellery that will appeal to Disney fans who can take the idea of dressing-up like a princess one step further.
Available exclusively at Harrods, these one-off pieces are on shown alongside ten dresses designed by Oscar de la Renta, Versace, and Elie Saab based on the original Disney Princess gowns. Created under the leadership of Chopard's Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele, the collection honours the long-standing relationship between Chopard and the film industry. "The world of Walt Disney has been an inspiration for a variety of Chopard pieces," says Scheufele, "and I am very happy to have been given the opportunity to design the famous Princesses' pieces of jewellery. Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel… and all the others have been a great source of inspiration for me, giving birth to this new, elegant yet playful collection of Haute Joaillerie - a perfect expression of the Chopard aesthetic."
Not only are there dresses and jewellery: Caroline Scheufele has collaborated with Giuseppe Zanotti to produce a one-of-a-kind pair of bejewelled Disney Princess shoes, which will be auctioned for charity. With the festive season kicking into high gear, this winter wonderland of Disney regalia is on show now, until the end of December, at the Chopard boutique in Harrods' Fine Jewellery Room.
