Bloomingdales Opens Up Lion King-themed Pop-Up Shop Curated by Actress Florence Kasumba
With only a week to go until opening, excitement over Disney’s live-action adaptation of The Lion King has reached fever pitch. Even esteemed retailer Bloomingdales is getting in on the fun with a Style Kingdom pop-up shop at The Carousel in Century City, San Francisco, and New York now through September 2nd.
German-Ugandan actress Florence Kasumba (pictured above) who voices hyena Shenzi in the film has curated the shop via an official Disney Partnership. This marks the first time that The Carousel has collaborated with a studio film. At Style Kingdom, guests will find everything from clothing, home good and kids apparel.
Kasumba had this to say of the collaboration: “[It’s] an absolute thrill because I’ve been able to combine my love of fashion and film whilst connecting back to my African heritage. I love how The Lion King can be interpreted through this new lens and connect with audiences in a unique and fresh way. I felt such a personal connection to the pieces I curated and I can’t wait for people to see the collections and the movie!”
According to a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter, some of the awesome items you’ll find at this Bloomingdale’s pop-up shop include AAKS raffia bags, zebra print Birkenstocks, Gigi Burris raffia hats, Beach Riot swimwear, BaubleBar earrings, Danielle Nicole handbags and more! Home essentials include Bean There Coffee, South African-made bottle openers, animal pillows and for kids bibs decorated with Lion King characters along with dresses, hoodies, shorts, tees and more!
For those unfamiliar with The Carousel at Bloomingdales, it opened last September with previous themes including a “Good for the Globe” theme launched by CAA co-chairman Bryan Lourd along with his actress daughter Billie Lourd.
So if you’re close to one of the Bloomingdale, The Carousel Shops listed above be sure to drop by and stock up on these carefully curated Lion King inspired items before September 2nd.
