Today brings my next Pandora AW17 sneak peek, with a look at the Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2017 collection! As is usual for Disney AW collections, from what I’ve seen so far, it seems to be a small release, with just three new charms pictured. However, there is also a new set of Disney Petites!
Pandora always release two sets of Disney charms with each collection – one that’s exclusive to Disney Parks locations and one that’s sold in both the Parks and Pandora concept stores. The charms pictured here will be those sold in all locations. They should also be launched in all regions that carry the Disney line.
This collection is due out in November with the Pandora Winter 2017 collection; I don’t have a firm release date on that yet, but I would predict it to fall on the 2nd of November, going by past collections.
Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2017 Preview
There are three new Moments charms coming out with the Pandora Disney AW17 collection: Lilo & Stitch, and two absolutely adorable characters from one of my Disney favourites: Bambi. Pandora always seem to limit themselves a lot with the AW Disney collections, which tend to be very small; however, unlike last year’s, I think this year’s launch makes better use of the collection’s size by introducing something completely fresh and new, rather than just more Mickey/Minnie pieces.
The plain silver detailing on Bambi and Thumper gets a huge thumbs up from me as well, while the fun enamel colours on the L&S bead suit the spirit of that particular film.
For Mickey & Minnie fans, there will be a set of Disney Petites for the Floating Lockets, detailed in CZ and black enamel. These are rather cute, I think!
You might also notice that this is a new Floating Locket design, too – this one has CZ detailing around the edge. The current offerings are plain silver. :)
In my opinion, this is a really great little Disney launch from Pandora: I can’t tell you how excited I am to see Bambi and Thumper! Dangles aren’t always my first choice for character beads, but I think in this case it has given Pandora the scope to really get the styling of each character just right – right down to the little butterfly perched on Bambi’s tail! At first I thought that the detailing on Bambi’s face looked potentially a little off from the stock image, but then I realised that his head is actually turned to look at the butterfly, just like that classic image of him. When you see it that way, his details look perfect. Thumper, too, is absolutely spot on.
I have never seen Lilo & Stitch, but I like that charm’s design – the characters have been captured well, I think, and Stitch looks particularly cute!
What do you think of these new Pandora Disney designs? Are any going on your wish list?
