Disney Consumer Products is collaborating with high-end designers Rousseau, Hayden-Harnett, Rotenier and TomTom to launch a luxury accessory and shoe collection for women inspired by the high-tech 3D adventure, TRON: Legacy, releasing in U.S. theaters Dec. 17, 2010 in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.
Designed for the young female urbanite, the new TRON: Legacy couture line features dramatic sterling silver and leather statement pieces including an iconic limited edition 5-inch high-heeled platform sandal inspired by the fearless female warriorвЂ”Quorra.
вЂњIn developing these TRON-inspired collections, we saw a natural fit for todayвЂ™s modern woman who blends fashion and technology in her daily routine,вЂќ said Pam Lifford, executive vice president of fashion and home for Disney Consumer Products. вЂњThe filmsвЂ™ lead female character was also a great inspiration due to her strong and fearless attitude. Combined with the design talents behind these fashion labels and their affinity for TRON, we have the perfect mix to deliver a line that will resonate with women all around.вЂќ
Additionally, Disney will soon announce details for its official, one and only TRON Pop-Up Shop set to launch in Los Angeles this November. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the exclusive retail destination for men and women will offer fans a one-stop shop for special and limited-edition TRON merchandise, including this new couture line for women.
The TRON-Legacy-inspired couture collection:
Jerome C. Rousseau, the distinctive high-end womenвЂ™s footwear designer, is launching a limited edition 5-inch high heeled platform sandal inspired by TRON: LegacyвЂ™s fearless female warriorвЂ”Quorra. This chic layered shoe will be available in pewter colored leather with metallic coating. The design features a radical shape, silhouette and structure that masterfully blends the futuristic and sleek architectural style of TRON. For Holiday 2010, the shoe will be exclusively sold at the TRON Pop-Up Shop and will expand to selected retailers worldwide in February 2011.
вЂњBefore Disney even approached me for this project, I had the original TRON poster next to my desk as part of my inspiration while I was designing my Spring 2011 collection, so I am obviously beyond excited to be asked to create a shoe inspired by TRON: Legacy,вЂќ said designer Jerome C. Rousseau. вЂњIn keeping with my label's strengths, I created a style that is distinctive and strong like the architectural nature of TRON, yet anchored in feminine lines and luxurious constructions.вЂќ
Fine accessories designer Hayden-HarnettвЂ™s TRON: Legacy collection brings the digital world of TRON to todayвЂ™s вЂfashionistaвЂ™ with two exclusive handbags, small leather goods (cosmetic bag and clutch) and three cuff bracelets that tout innovative structures and luxury detailing inspired by the filmвЂ™s angular lines.
Materials used in this product range include gun metal hardware, patent leather and regular leathers in black, with silver lining the interiors. The Hayden-Harnett TRON: Legacy collection consists of seven pieces will debut in the designerвЂ™s Brooklyn and Nolita stores, the TRON Pop-Up Shop, on haydenharnett.com, and at select retailers in November.
