Los Angeles-based streetwear brand Teddy Fresh has teamed up with Care Bears for a new collection of clothes and accessories based on the 1980s animated series.
The 30-piece Teddy Fresh x Care Bears collection includes hoodies, jackets, sweaters, tees, jeans, sweatpants, and shorts, adorned with adorable Care Bears graphics and motifs that come in various designs and colors. The fashion brand’s iconic Teddy Fresh Bear is also incorporated into some of the items in the collection, which will come in a full range of adult sizing for both men and women.
One of the stand-out pieces from the Teddy Fresh x Care Bears collection is a pastel-colored denim set featuring an all-over Care Bears dreamscape print. The same print can also be found in a set of matching loungewear. Also included in the lineup are accessories like bucket hats and socks.
In a statement to NYLON, Teddy Fresh founder and CEO Hila Klein revealed that the watercolor look of the original Care Bears animated series ― which aired in syndication from 1985 to 1983 ― is the inspiration for the fashion brand’s latest apparel collection.
“Visually, Care Bears and the Teddy Fresh Bear are just a great match. I love the idea of the bears being in the same world together,” Klein said. “Also, the vibrance and style of the watercolor look from the early Care Bears animations is [sic] really appealing to me, and the whole Teddy Fresh design team thought we could make a great collection inspired by that look and feel.”
