Find out what fashion designers for brands like Figue, Ruthie Davis, Disney Fine Jewelry and Box Lunch had to say about making Princess Jasmine's style from Aladdin come to life!
Figue: The Disney x Figue collection was inspired by Princess Jasmine and the magical world of Aladdin. Peacock feather motifs and deep, rich colors were used throughout the collection.
Figue: Our pouches feature the Magic Lamp, Jafar's Snake Staff, the Cave of Wonders, and a Peacock feather. The Peacock Feather played a huge role in our design process because they are unique and beautiful, just like Princess Jasmine.
Figue: Independent and adventuresome, Princess Jasmine embodies the qualities of the women we design for every day. Infused with the spirit and enchantment of faraway lands, the Disney x Figue collection will have you ready for your next adventure!
Figue: All of our designs were made with Princess Jasmine in mind, and we believe a modern-day Princess Jasmine would rock them!
Box Lunch: The updated costumes were a huge inspiration for us! We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to view these garments in person before designing the collection. The construction and attention to detail is immaculate on all the garments. the movie together. Our team really loved the market scene! We took inspiration from the wrap that Jasmine wears, achieving an everyday wearable jasmine piece we hope Disney fans will love!
Box Lunch: We took inspiration from the characters, costumes, beautiful set design and of course some of the powerful song lyrics that thread through and updated it with our own secret handshake pattern including the clouds, referencing the magic carpet ride and the lamp.
Judith Leiber: The large coffered rectangle clutch is a Judith Leiber Couture Crystal rendition of Aladdin’s magic carpet. I did simplify the motif in order to create it in crystal, but its dark navy and cobalt and gold colors are directly inspired by the carpet pattern. The peacock feather was another motif in the film, and embroidery design on Princess Jasmine’s gown. I created charms using enamel and crystal to decorate the handbag chain- I also designed a crystal pattern on our roll clutch that is encrusted in 24K gold crystal and peacock feathers winding around the clutch
Judith Leiber: The capsule collection was inspired by the jewels in Aladdin’s Cave of Wonders, the look and feel of the costumes, and the set design. The shape of the Magic lamp, is a piece that existed in the Judith Leiber Couture collection, for this capsule I re-imagined it in rich gold tones and Persian carpet inspired motifs.
Ruthie Davis: Whenever I design the Disney Princess X Ruthie Davis Collections, I imagine the shoes on a real person in the context of a world full of possibility and dreams coming true. So, in a sense all of my footwear designs are thinking in terms of a live-action version of a Disney Princess story. In the context of the Aladdin live-action film, I was very intrigued by the spirit and enchantment of the faraway land of Agrabah. And I was inspired by the vision of Naomi Scott as a fiercely independent and adventuresome future Leader of Agrabah. For example, I imagined my Raja Pump with it’s multi-colored exotic tiger print on the foot of Jasmine as she entered the room in her incredible outfits with Raja walking behind her.
Ruthie Davis: The Ruthie Davis brand has always been about shoes that empower women, making them feel strong and beautiful. This is why the partnership with Disney is so perfect. Princess Jasmine is stunningly beautiful but equally strong and powerful. This is the formula for all of my shoe designs. I tried to make all of the styles in the Collection to be stand alone beautiful shoes that are inspired by Jasmine. I designed shoes that I imagined she could wear. My shoe designs are never for the faint of heart. They are for women who want to own the rooms they walk into - just like Jasmine.
Ruthie Davis: I love the idea of hidden Easter eggs in all of my Disney Princess X Ruthie Davis shoes. I love that on my sleek black Jasmine kidskin red carpet stiletto with clear front strap has written in black letters in the clear strap, “Own Your World” so that when the woman wearing them looks down at her feet she is reminded to “own it” like Princess Jasmine! My platform jogger is clean and all white with velcro straps which is a big fashion trend, but we have turquoise and purple oversized jewel stones on the straps and written on the midsole the words, “Heart of Courage.”The shoes are on trend and wearable but with a nod to Jasmine and female empowerment. And my favorite is the Metal Golden Beetle we have on our “Golden Beetle” boot. It is hidden in that the entire boot is high shine gold mirror kidskin - but the beetle is there.
Limor Magidov (Disney Fine Jewelry): The line drew inspiration from the Arabian and Middle Eastern architecture, arabesque patterns, Persian carpets, peacock feathers and lanterns. The Swiss blue topaz gemstone was chosen to represent her turquoise beaded peacock feather outfit and the color that represents middle eastern culture the best.
Limor Magidov (Disney Fine Jewelry): When designing the pieces I had ask myself what would a real life Princess Jasmine would wear with her everyday wardrobe and what would she like to wear for special events that would represent her character as a strong, independent woman that makes her own decisions.
