Disney By Patterson J. Kincaid Collection Celebrates The “Prince Of The Forest”
Slouchy is the name of the Patterson J. Kincaid game, with vintage-flavored, no-fuss blouses, sweaters, dresses, tanks, and tunics that hang loosely on the body, appearing slightly boyish — well, save for the pieces’ understated feminine details, which include oversize pockets, delicate ruching at the sleeve cuffs, unexpected side slits, asymmetrical waistlines, and rounded V-shaped necklines. Now, the vintage brand has collaborated with Disney on a limited-edition collection of tanks featuring one of the most beloved tales in Disney’s animated film canon: Bambi.
The five-piece collection of tanks, tees and sweatshirts feature vintage illustrations of classic characters and scenes from the original 1942 film (yes, the one that made so many of us shed tears over those mean hunters!). Two thistle tee designs are available: first, there’s “Baby Bambi” (pictured at top), a heather gray jersey number with an image of the most beloved deer in American pop culture; and “Patch Bambi” (pictured last from top), a weathered, navy-colored tee with a landscape-like, watercolor-esque sketch of a young Bambi in the forest, orange and yellow autumn leaves trickling down to his feet, the sky behind him turning purple at twilight. The same illustration featured in the “Baby Bambi” tee is also emblazoned across the “Baby Bambi” pullover (pictured fourth), a 100% cotton, oatmeal-colored, vintage French terry sweatshirt with a scoop neckline and a slightly athletic cut.
If you think the film’s most memorable scenes involve the fawn’s vivacious crew of playmates (the scene where he learns how to ice skate? Classic!), you’ll appreciate the baseball-flavored “Forest Friends” tee, which features 3/4-length, black raglan sleeves, a rounded black neckline, and pencil-like sketches of an adolescent Bambi alongside the adorably wide-eyed skunk Flower and the foot-tapping rabbit Thumper along the white chest area.
Those smitten with Thumper’s own thicket-appropriate tap dance (i.e. the relentless foot thumping that earned him his nickname) will swoon over the charming “Thumper” tank, a 100% combed ring spun cotton tank with a deep U-shaped neckline and curved bottom edges that slope a bit lower at the center for a more laid-back feel. The tank features a colorful image of the chubby-cheeked bunny standing amid a flower patch, and you can practically imagine him uttering the words, “Eating greens is a special treat. It makes long ears and great big feet. But it sure is awful stuff to eat.”
