Babar x Soulland Menswear

If, like us you grew up in the 80’s, you will no doubt remember kid’s TV animation ‘Babar The Elephant’.

Now, to mark the the children character’s 80th anniversary, a special capsule menswear collection is due to launch in London’s The Goodhood Store (Islington).

For the first time permission has been given for the artwork of  French illustrator Jean de Brunhoff to be used on a men’s fashion range. Copenhagen-based Soulland has been honored with the privillege and launches garments including long sleeved shirts, t-shirts, a sweatshirt and cotton shorts (seen below).

Silas Adler, founder and head designer of Soulland, who created the range, comments:
I have been a fan of the Babar universe since I was four years old, so it was a great honour being able to work on this collaboration. I was particularly inspired by a story from the first book, where Babar goes to the tailor to get his first suit – a bright green suit. I like the link and the relevance to menswear in that story. All drawings are originals drawn by the author and ‘father’ of the Babar universe”.

Prices start at £47

The collection launches in London on 12th April and is available internationally at Colette (Paris), Opening Ceremony (NY & LA), Hunting & Collecting (Brussels) and Soto (Berlin).
