The year is almost over, but the Disney news certainly is not—I’ve just enough time to squeeze in one more before 2018 is up. This time, it’s Venetian jeweler Roberto Coin who’s getting a sprinkling of pixie dust.
It was recently announced that in collaboration with the House of Mouse, Roberto Coin will be delighting us with an assortment of collections down the road—the first, inspired by Cinderella.
First came the introduction of the Cinderella Collectors Doll, a limited-edition release in celebration of Coin’s collaboration with Disney. It featured the likeness inspired by Disney’s Cinderella—the one we all know so well—decked out in custom diamond jewelry (3.45 cts. in total) designed by Coin. Here’s the kicker: The doll, priced at $28,000 and available at the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship in New York, sold out in less than four days.
So we won’t all get a diamond-decked doll. But what we can get our hands on is the Cinderella collection, currently available at nine Saks locations (New York, Boston, San Antonio, Atlanta, and in Florida at Palm Beach Gardens, Dadeland, Naples, Boca Raton, and Bal Harbour), as well as online at saks.com. And what a delightful collection it is.
What I love most about it is how it tells the story of Cinderella through its symbols. Where we may think Cinderella and imagine crowns and glass slippers, this line digs a little deeper into the tale, with icons of the woman’s transformation from humble beauty disguised in rags to belle of the ball.
The items responsible for and associated with that transformation— Cindy’s friends, the mice, a clock set at midnight, and starry shapes—all represent the moment she changed into the woman no one could keep their eyes off of at the ball. You’ll also find the Fairy Godmother’s wand (Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!) and a beautiful bow that ties everything neatly together.
Stay tuned for what’s next from the Disney x Roberto Coin collection, and visit robertocoin.com for more from the Italian jeweler.
