The collection combines Mizrahi’s prints, concepts and signature aesthetic with Sesame Street’s distinctive characters and colors.
Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, have teamed for an exclusive collection, Isaac Mizrahi Loves Sesame, that brings colorful and playful prints to childrenswear, plush and accessories in celebration of the iconic show’s golden anniversary.
“For our 50th anniversary, we knew we wanted to collaborate with a world-class designer whose work would reflect the exuberance and vitality of Sesame Street,” says Gabriela Arenas, vice president of North American licensing at Sesame Workshop. “Isaac Mizrahi’s instincts are spot-on, and we’re excited about the smart, happy, and colorful collection that he will introduce.”
The collaboration, debuting select retailers later this month, combines Mizrahi’s prints, concepts and signature aesthetic with Sesame Street’s distinctive characters and colors. Products will include infant and toddler apparel, soft plush toys, kids’ backpacks and furry outerwear, and cold weather hats featuring favorite characters Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby and the rest of the gang.
“Sesame Street is all about embracing your individuality and appreciating diversity in all its forms,” Mizrahi says. “I’ve been so inspired by the characters and the messaging, and they’ve impacted my life and designs for this collection.”
