For 65 years, the Peanuts crew have been giving us major #squadgoals. And while they've certainly gone through a few changes on their journey from comic strip cartoons to 3D animated characters in the upcoming The Peanuts Movie, one thing has remained the same: their classic ensembles.
At this point, we can't even imagine Charlie Brown wearing anything other than his yellow T-shirt with its signature zigzag stripe. He has been wearing it since 1950, after all. But while he may be the leader of the pack, Charlie Brown isn't the only fashion icon to emerge from the Peanuts. Each of the gang's leading ladies—Lucy van Pelt, Peppermint Patty, and Sally Brown—has her own distinct sense of style. So for InStyle's November issue, we imagined which of this season's runway looks we'd love to see them wear to the premiere of the film, in theaters Nov. 6.
But we're not the only ones inspired by the Peanuts. Just in time for the new movie's release, brands such as Lacoste and Gap are launching limited-edition collections that will let you score some Peanuts swag of your own. Scroll down to see our favorite collaborations that offer everything from sneakers to snowboards.
Lacoste's famous polos are getting a Peanuts makeover. On Nov. 2, the brand is dropping a capsule collection that features the cartoon characters on its signature shirts and sweatshirts for men, women, and kids. And Lacoste's classic crocodile logo is getting in on the fun, too. The embroidered reptile has become a playful part of the designs that show Snoopy fishing, Charlie Brown golfing, Lucy playing tennis (above), and Linus involved in a game of tug-of-war. Shop the collection, which starts at $85, when it hits stores and lacoste.com next month.
Shanghai-based sneaker brand Feiyue is known for its simple styles, but now the line is adding a dose of pop culture to its kicks. Available for pre-order at feiyue-shoes.com on Oct. 26, the collection shows off the Peanuts' famous faces on lace-up styles for women and velcro versions for kids. Bonus: These $80 sneaks can be paired with almost any outfit, since each of the three designs comes in both black and white.
Before they hit theaters, The Peanuts are hitting the slopes. Winter gear brand Burton is releasing special-edition snowboards for both women and kids on Nov. 2, and the designs feature graphics straight out of the original cartoon. Available on burton.com, the kids' board ($210) and women's board ($420) will come in three different styles, with each one featuring a different image that's just begging to be covered in some fresh powder.
The Cambridge Satchel Company
The Cambridge Satchel Company offers an array of satchels and dog collars in the quintessential zigzag print of Charlie Brown's shirt—but there are many more options than his signature yellow and black design. The satchels ($225 and up) let you put your own twist on the character's classic look in hues ranging from blues and reds to an all-black option for a more subtle nod to the cartoon. The accessories line also offers cheeky pouches featuring characters like Lucy and Snoopy ($145, above). Shop them now at at cambridgesatchel.com.
Of course, the little ones can get in on the fun, too. GapKids and babyGap are each launching a Peanuts-inspired collection on Oct. 19, with prices ranging from $12 to $78. The pieces are designed to represent a more vintage version of the Peanuts, reflecting the cartoon characters' looks from the 1960s and 1970s. The kids' line offers everything from sweaters and dresses to scarves and gloves, while the selection for newborns includes an "awww"-inducing set of onesies that feature hand-drawn sketches of Snoopy expressing different moods.
