The Disney Parks Blog is a great site to follow for the latest merchandise. Just recently, they had announced the new Alex and Ani bangles (which went on sale today, April 18), and now, they’ve announced new Star Wars Dooney & Bourke handbags coming later this spring.
Previous releases of Star Wars inspired Dooney & Bourke bags include the runDisney 2015 collection, the runDisney 2016 light side collection, the runDisney 2016 dark side collection, and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection currently available at the Disney Store.
Now, I don’t own any Dooney & Bourke bags, but after seeing this new selection at the Disney Parks Blog, I definitely want to save up to purchase one. According to the Steven Miller, the Merchandise Communications Manager, “This is the first time we’ve introduced black leather bags with embossed characters and icons.” That’s definitely what caught my attention!
I also love the red detailing around the base, handles, and straps. That is some exquisite detail! These handbags should be arriving around mid-to-late May at Legends of Hollywood in Disney’s Hollywood Studios or at The Star Trader in Disneyland Park. However, if you’re unable to find yourself in these magical places, keep checking the Shop Disney Parks mobile app to see whether they pop up there. I’m also hoping they become available at the Disney Store sometime down the line.
Miller also replied to a customer’s comment regarding rates. The wrislet is about $108, the letter carrier is around $198, and the shopper bag is about $298.
