Disney, together with leading Asian independent retailer CLOT officially opened the highly anticipated concept store Man Is In The Forest- the first store in the world where ground breaking Disney collaborations with leading designers will be sold under one roof.
Already established fashion leaders in Asia, CLOT has four retail outlets in Asia selling the latest in cutting edge street wear design and labels such as HeadPorter, OriginalFake and much more. Man Is In The Forest will be the fifth retail offering and their second in mainland China.
This one- of-a-kind retail concept is a tribute to Walt Disney himself- the reference “Man is in the Forest” dates back to the days of the animated movie Bambi, when Walt was heavily involved in the production process; workers used it as a code phrase to hint that Walt was in the studio.
Man Is In The Forest will feature limited-edition Disney-inspired fashion, accessories and collectables from designers all around the globe including Campana Brothers, Charlotte Tarantola, Dr. Romanelli, Han Cholo, Kidada Jones, MindStyle, Tom Binns,Violette Van Parys, X-Girl and X-Large to name just the designers on board for the launch.
Hot on the heels of the release of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3 and to celebrate the launch of the store, Toy Story takes center stage, taking inspiration from the lineup of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Rex, Jessie and Hamm. A collection of limited edition t-shirts designed by leading fashion designers such as Cassette Playa, Costello Tagliapietra, Henry Holland, Jonathan Saunders and Victor Glemaud will be sold in-store.
