Fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana have teamed up with Popeye for a limited-edition apparel collection released in Spring/Summer 2013 under the D&G brand. T-shirts, sweatshirt and tank tops for adults and kids are now available in boutiques and high-end department stores worldwide. D&G joins a high-profile list of fashion licensees and retailers who have carried Popeye, including Benetton, Bloomingdale’s, Gap, H&M, Miss Sixty and Zara.
People lining the route of the 68th annual Frontier Day Parade in downtown Terre Haute, Ind., on the Fourth of July were treated to a delightful array of festooned families and the sight of Popeye, the World’s Most Famous Sailor Man, escorting his goil, Olive Oyl, down Wabash Avenue. It was pure Americana. Check out the fun here:
This week, King Features is proudly showcasing all of its brands, including its flagship property POPEYE and OLIVE OYL, at Licensing Expo 2013 in Las Vegas.
