Miss Piggy joins forces with Kate Spade New York

Miss Piggy has been tapped to star in Kate Spade New York’s holiday line.

The porcine protagonist has joined forces with the fashion brand for a Disney Miss Piggy Collection by Kate Spade New York, available for Christmas only.

Launching on 1 December (16) fans can get their hands on everything from clutch bags to earrings, all decorated pink with spots of sparkle.

Some pieces include a few of Miss Piggy’s famous quotes and phrases too, notably, ‘Who, moi?’

The collaboration doesn’t stop there though as The Muppet Show alumni also features in Kate Spade New York’s holiday campaign alongside model Jourdan Dunn and costume designer Catherine Baba.

All three stars are seen posing with brightly-colored totes to promote the label’s new personalization program, allowing customers to put their own touches on designs.

Furthermore, Miss Piggy stars in the brand’s Miss Adventure movie as well, opposite Girls star Zosia Mamet and author Leandra Medine.

Speaking to WWD about her line with Kate Spade, Miss Piggy shared some of her most-loved pieces.

“Everything in the collection is fabulous, but anything with ‘Moi’ on it is a personal favorite,” she explained. “I’m sure you feel exactly the same way. Don’t you? Of course, you do.”

Deborah Lloyd, president and chief creative officer of Kate Spade, worked closely with Miss Piggy on the collection, with the latter doing the “inspiring”.

Discussing the brand’s new muse, Deborah describes her as the “perfect” choice thanks to her strong, independent nature.

“She was the perfect girl to represent us for holiday, and her favorite color is pink. She’s the quintessential fashionista,” Deborah smiled.

As for Miss Piggy’s own outlook on fashion she insists she’s more “moi-centric” now after previously relying on advice from others.

“Now, I trust myself. If I wear it, you better like it. Attitude is everything. Your clothes should always make a statement,” she advised.
