D Street Offers Unique, Urban Art-Inspired Products for Men & Women
A new store joins the Downtown Disney District’s unique collection of shopping and dining experiences with today’s opening of D Street, where Disney product meets urban pop culture.
D Street, located in the mid-section of the District, carries a variety of products for both men and women. Items include cutting-edge apparel, pop culture novelties, Vinylmation figures and collectibles, artwork, handbags, accessories and jewelry. The store’s raw, unfinished industrial look also features Disney art created by local artists.
Product lines feature vintage looks from Disney Couture and urban styles inspired by the surf and skate lifestyle. Vintage apparel includes artwork from classic Disney attractions and characters and films such as “Star Wars” and “TRON.” D Street also showcases jewelry designers Tarina Tarantino and Classic Hardware, and fashion labels Mighty Fine and Harajuku Lovers.
“We are excited to add D Street to the eclectic blend of experiences available for our guests at Downtown Disney – where there truly is something for everyone,” said Tony Bruno, vice president, Resort hotels and Downtown Disney. “The creative vibe of D Street, combined with the special edition Disney items available, make for a dynamic combination you can’t find anywhere else.”
One featured artist is Southern California’s own, Noah, who is known for his avant-garde artistic approach. Noah draws inspiration from his love of Disney and his passion for classic films and cars. Motor Mouse Since 1928, a brand by Noah, is a collection that includes artwork and apparel featuring Mickey Mouse in a variety of scenarios, including Mickey riding a motorcycle.
“Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing Disney guests light up when they see their favorite Disney character in a light that fits their personality and lifestyle,” said Noah. “It makes the characters and Disney magic that much closer and personal.”
