This enchanting collection will be available on Columbia.com/Disney starting at 12:01am EST on November 15 and in Columbia branded stores when doors open that day. The brand’s multifaceted collaboration with Disney includes sponsorship of the “Frozen 2” official red carpet live stream, and a behind-the-scenes video featuring exclusive interviews.
“This collection is the result of an extremely close collaboration between the creative minds at Disney and at Columbia, and we are thrilled to share it with Frozen fans everywhere,” said Joe Boyle, Columbia Brand President. “Working with Disney on a collection inspired by “Frozen 2” is a natural fit for our brand and the thoughtful details in these pieces, coupled with premium adaptations of Columbia’s proprietary technologies, truly honors the inspiration behind this remarkable franchise.”
The “Disney Frozen 2” Collection:
These functional pieces are full of Disney magic, and incorporate several detailed elements for fans. Examples include a new holographic Omni-Heat lining in the Elsa Long Down Jacket, regal gold Omni-Heat dots that create a striking yet functional visual lining on the Anna Down Cape, and a custom-designed Nordic print on the fleece and lining of the Kristoff Interchange Jacket. Each stunning piece is made to feel as if it was handcrafted in Arendelle for the characters themselves:
- Inspired by Anna, the stunning Anna Down Cape captures her daring-yet-playful spirit. Head turning and twirl-worthy in a dance of autumnal tones, this limited-edition down cape with gold Omni-Heat Thermal Reflective lining, gold-chrome hardware, and Anna's beautiful wheat symbol lets you venture outdoors in comfort and style ($500 MSRP Women's / $300 MSRP Girls).
- Drawing on the brave and powerful Elsa, the Elsa Long Down Jacket is truly enchanting. Designed with a form-fitting, cozy down silhouette and detailed with holographic Omni-Heat Thermal Reflective lining, silver-chrome detailed hardware, and Elsa’s iconic snowflake; this regal piece is ideal for the coldest conditions ($500 MSRP Women's / $300 MSRP Girls).
- The Kristoff Interchange Jacket is a rugged 3-in-1 jacket featuring a waterproof-breathable Omni-Tech shell and removable printed Sherpa fleece liner. Richly detailed with a Nordic-inspired print, antique-brass hardware, and Kristoff’s sleigh symbol, this jacket is the perfect companion for epic winter adventures ($500 MSRP in Men’s only).
In addition to these luxurious premium styles, Columbia’s collection of “Frozen 2” jackets includes two puffer jackets and two patterned fleeces for girls, inspired by Anna and Elsa’s characters in the film. These vibrant styles are available in Columbia’s factory stores, branded stores and Ecommerce site, and are embroidered with original character art and colorful elements, priced from $40-100 MSRP.
