Today’s post brings a full look at the Pandora Disney Spring 2018 collection! This release is small in comparison with previous years, and focuses entirely on Mickey/Minnie designs. However, these are a little different to some of the more abstract designs we’ve seen before.
The collection launches today worldwide, but the products have been available for a couple of weeks in a few US stores and Disney Parks locations. The Pandora Disney collection was strictly embargoed by Pandora and so I haven’t been able to preview it ahead of its official launch.
Read on for a detailed look at the new pieces!
Pandora Disney Spring 2018 collection overview
The Vintage Minnie mixes pink enamel with pink pavé detailing, and as I mentioned back in my initila preview way back in December, I feel t this is going after a very iconic kitschy vintage shade of baby pink. It’s priced at $75 USD.
The Vintage Mickey (RRP $55 USD) equivalent comes in white enamel and is actually a clip – so you could do a nice design with two of these clips, and a Minnie charm in the middle. Or, you could put one Mickey clip at the end of your bracelet to stop charms rolling off, and the Minnie openwork on the other side of the clasp.These all have quite a ‘vintage’ feel to them, relying on quite old-school and detailed silver depictions of Mickey & Minnie. I think this works particularly well in the Car charm, which is quite sweet – I like that the charm’s details are left to speak for themselves without the addition of any enamel or bling. It’s priced at $50 USD.
The Floating Minnie is a little more pricey due to the pavé ball at the top of charm, retailing for $100 USD.The Mickey Love Heart is a beautiful colour, although the stone again pushes the price up to $90 USD. It’s effectively a Mickey Mouse wrapped around a Shape of Love charm, which is a fun little concept.
The Mickey Iconic Glove is $55 USD.There have been so many safety chains coming out this season, which I absolutely love to see, as I am a safety chain addict and like to have different ones on all my bracelets. The Mickey Gestures safety chain is plain silver and priced at $65 USD.The Climbing Mickey safety chain, retailing for $75 USD, is my favourite, though, with the adorable red heart CZs and that cute little Mickey figure hanging on for dear life on the chain! It’s great that Pandora are becoming much more creative with their safety chain designs, adding little stones to the chains last year, and now this little Mickey figure. They can be character beads too!
The Mickey Floating Locket will be perfect to wear with the Disney petites that came out in AW last year! It’ll be priced at $180 USD.Finally, we have this Classic Mickey pendant for $50 USD. The yellow would normally be pretty hard to style, but it could easily be worn as a standalone necklace pendant, and Disney dedicated designs are often pretty bright and multi-coloured anyway.
I’ve collated some live shots below. I just love the detailing on the back of the silver car charm!
My favourite of these is by far the Climbing Mickey safety chain, which I find really quite sweet! I’m considering starting a dedicated Disney bracelet, especially if I do get to make a trip to Disneyland Paris this year – that would be such a fun souvenir. I was also pondering the Mickey Gestures SC as an addition to my Halloween bracelet… I could pass them off as magician’s hands or something haha!
I’m hoping that we might see some more new characters later in the year, though, as I was disappointed not to see new Disney franchises enter the main Pandora collection as usual for Spring!
What do you think of this new launch?
