Stella McCartney x The Dandy

The fashion designer has teamed up with the iconic comic book to create some wearable art. Featuring characters like Korky the Cat, Dinah Mo, Cuddles and Dimples the collection is set to be a big hit with die hard comic fans & fashionistas alike.

Sir Paul McCarthy appeared in the last ever printed copy of the comic book in 2012. So clearly the love for The Dandy runs in the family!

Stella said: "The humour and artistry of comic-strip animation touches your heart and your memory bank.

"In this collaboration, fun and fashion go hand in hand and we are able to incorporate sustainable, stylish, timeless pieces while celebrating the inner child in our spirit."

Styles in the collection include an all-in-one, outwear jackets lined with the print, dresses and separates, t-shirts, intarsia knits, denim jeans and a sweatshirt with embroidery applique.

Retail prices range from £170 for a t-shirt to £1,260 for a parka and the collection will be available later this year.

Emma Scott, chief executive officer at Beano Studios, said: "We're delighted to be working alongside Stella McCartney and her team to give iconic British comic characters Korky, Dinah Mo and Cuddles & Dimples a fresh new context.

"Our mission at Beano Studios is to entertain all kids, even grown-up ones, by bringing our infamous rebellious streak to life in a range of new ideas, from fashion to movies to apps.

"Thanks Stella - we love your take on our world."

Published by DC Thomson in Dundee, The Dandy still appears as an annual.

We cannot wait for this to launch!
