In the movie Bambi, the night he was awaken by the smell of smoke, his father explains to him that Man is in the forest and they must flee. This phase carried over when Walt Disney was heavily involved in the development of animated features, “Man is in the forest” was used as the code phrase amongst the animators to signal that Walt Disney was in the studio. On June 26th in Shanghai, Disney in collaboration with CLOT will open a concept store using the legendary phase as the store name, Man Is In The Forest. This brand new concept store will be the first of its kind anywhere in the world showcasing the best Disney inspired designer collaborations from all around the world. The product range including apparel, accessories, home ware and other collectibles will only be available for a limited time in-store. Here’s a sneak peek at the store from KP, can’t wait to see how the whole store looks!
The first wave of designer collaborators include Antipast, Bounty Hunter, Campana Brothers, Cassette Playa, Charlotte Tarantola, CLOT, Costello Tagliapietra, Devilrobots, Han Cholo, Harveys, Henry Holland, Hysteric Mini, Isabella Fiore, Jonathan Saunders, Kidada Jones, Lucas Design, Milkfed, MINDstyle, Secret Base, Tom Binns, Victor Glemaud, Violette Van Parys, and Whiz.
I’m super excited about this since I’ve been helping EDC with an upcoming project for the concept store! Can’t wait till the project comes to fruition, be sure to stay tuned for more updates…it sure won’t be a disappointment!
