Miss Piggy has a busy schedule, but always finds time to advertise Disney-related items. Although having experienced troubled times after divorcing Kermit and facing the cancellation of the new Muppets show earlier this year, Miss Piggy is back on track starring in Kate Spade’s new holiday 2016 ad campaign, and her personality shines like never before.
Entitled Disney Miss Piggy Collection, Kate Spade’s holiday 2016 lineup features items with price tags ranging from $48 to $378, and includes everything from wallets to earrings. Set to officially debut in Kate Spade specialty stores and Nordstrom, as well as online at katespade.com starting from December 1st, Kate Spade’s Miss Piggy Collection is already one of the social media’s trending topics, and that’s due to Miss Piggy for sure.
“I feel that Miss Piggy is perfect for us,” Kate Spade’s president and chief creative officer Deborah Lloyd told WWD. “She really represents the definition of an interesting, strong, independent, mesmerizing, tantalizing, fabulous woman… She was the perfect girl to represent us for holiday, and her favorite color is pink. She’s the quintessential fashionista.”
Glamorous and jocosely juiced up by cascades of streamers and confetti (and a few cartoonish dinosaurs too), for her Kate Spade holiday 2016 ad campaign the designer also asked model of the moment Jourdan Dunn and stylist Catherine Baba to join the stage, adding overall girl power vibes to each one of the pictures.
Needless to say, Miss Piggy proves to be the one and only protagonist, as her diva-like allure and signature taste got translated to many of the collection’s items too, such as the iconic “Who, Moi?” clutch and a pearl necklace with a Miss Piggy-inspired little adornment.
“I’m experiencing a new freedom these days, taking chances, making decisions and, of course, inspiring all women to be like moi!” declared Miss Piggy in an official statement. “With Kate Spade New York, I can make an exciting lifestyle statement and a bold fashion statement at the same time! Trés fabuleux, n’est ce pas?”
Other great references to our beloved Miss Piggy are to be traced in the abounding amount of pink hues the collection features, specifically Schiaparelli’s shade of energizing pink. Oversized pink sweaters, soft pink wallets, light pink phone cases and “Who Moi” earrings in pink gold are thus at the core of both the campaign and the collection, and, moreover, remind us pink is going to be one of the 2017 must-have colors, too.
Aside from the Disney-related side of Kate Spade’s holiday 2016 collection, the campaign includes standard Kate Spade items too, which will particularly appeal to those who like the house’s timeless evergreens.
Iconic Catherine Baba and Jourdan Dunn are seen sporting a great amount of accessories, which vary from the classic Skyline Way Large Violina Bag, here seen revamped with sparkling dark gray and navy shades, to more contemporary and cheerful furry clip-on chains.
The campaign leaves large room for us to explore, for instance, Kate Spade’s must-have Cameron Street Lane Bag (in Emerald Ring and Pink Confetti), as well as tactic essentials, such as the animal print cozy jacket that we are sure will fly off the shelves in the blink of an eye.
