DGTG Fashion Alert: SpiritHoods Expands Their Tribe in Celebration of the Brand-New Film Disney's The Muppets

New Limited-Edition Collection inspired by classic
Muppets characters

SpiritHoods, a manufacturer of unique animal-inspired faux fur accessories for men, women and children, and Disney Consumer Products will launch a new line inspired by The Muppets characters. The collection will be available this Fall for a limited time in conjunction with the release of Disney's The Muppets in U.S. theaters on November 23, 2011.

The Muppets line will combine the distinctive and one-of-a-kind style of SpiritHoods with the classic features and personality of timeless Muppet characters including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and Gonzo in both kids and adult sizes. Miss Piggy's design is a glamorous pink shawl, while the Kermit the Frog-inspired hood is bright green with big eyes and other classic Kermit characteristics. The collection ranges in price from $99 to $169 and will be available October 3rd in Fred Segal stores and on the SpiritHoods website.

"This is our first limited-edition collection and the SpiritHoods tribe is proud to be collaborating with such an iconic brand as The Muppets, their wild and varying characters lend themselves perfectly to our brand. There is definitely some good humor represented in this collection," said SpiritHoods Co-Founder and Design Director Alexander Mendeluk. "Many members of the SpiritHoods tribe also grew up as Muppets fans and we're looking forward to introducing our interpretation of these crazy characters."

"The Muppets have long been beloved for their humor, pop-culture relevance and whimsy that appeals to fans of all ages," said Soo Koo, Vice President of Fashion and Home Creative for Disney Consumer Products. "We liked SpiritHoods approach in using storytelling to develop design-driven lifestyle accessories that bring these favorite characters to life in a humorous way for both children and adults."

The Muppets-themed SpiritHoods collection will also be making surprise appearances on guests during New York's Fashion Night Out on September 8, 2011, so be on the lookout! With over 55 years of legacy, The Muppets are a classic American franchise with a fan base that spans the globe. Disney's The Muppets film marks their return to the big screen for the first time in 12 years.
