Your first look at the new ASOS x The Lion King collection
The new ASOS x Lion King collection will leave you with no worries for the rest of your days.
You would have to have been living under a rock to have never heard of The Lion King. It's easily one of the most iconic and popular movies to date. Plus, with the new Lion King movie coming out in less than a month – the film is on everyone's lips.
Therefore, it comes as absolutely no surprise that ASOS is launching its very own fashion line in collaboration with the movie. Yes, I did lose it and yes, my credit card is about to get completely abused but hey, hakuna matata right?
So what's in this collection and why am I losing my absolute mind over it? In my opinion, these pieces are quite different from any other Disney collection we've seen before. We still see the iconic stills from the movie like Rafiki holding Simba in the circle of life and the hyenas, who I relate to more than I'd like to admit, but this collection offers more than just memorabilia. It features bright fun designs and colours that seriously remind us of what it would be like to explore the African jungle, which I for one love.
There is a wide range of styles to completely obsess over. From tie-dye shirts featuring a dressed-in-drag, hula-dancing Timon (aka the most iconic moment of my childhood) to Zazu-embossed button-up shirts, this collection has everything. You can expect crop tees, graphic tees, a neon denim jacket, co-ord sets, cycle shorts, crew neck jumpers and oh so much more. The ASOS Design x Lion King collection will be available in womenswear, menswear and unisex pieces as well as ASOS CURVE and ASOS PLUS styles.
At this point in time, we don't have a definite price range, but we do know that ASOS Design pieces are never too expensive. The licensing might mean that these items are a little more expensive than usual, but ASOS tends to keep a pretty affordable price tag.
When is it available?
The Disney Lion King collection by ASOS DESIGN launches on 1 July 2019 on the ASOS website! That's next Monday, which is exactly 18 days before the new movie comes out, so you can be completely decked out in the right attire when you see The Lion King on the big screen.
