Popeye was spotted this past weekend in Italy. These photos were taken at the opening of the new Philipp Plein boutique in Porto Chervo at Costa Smeralda (Italy) on August 11, 2013. German designer Philipp Plein celebrated the opening of his newest boutique with Daniele Conti, captain of the Cagliari Calcio soccer team, who attended with several of his teammates, one of whom is wearing a Popeye T-shirt from Phillipp’s new Popeye-inspired collection.
Here is a funny cartoon from cartoonist Dan Piraro, creator of the hilarious comic panel Bizarro, as he imagines what my first date with Olive Oyl might have been like.
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.
