Released in 1970, “The Aristocats” is a timeless Walt Disney Company classic that continues to charm audiences worldwide. Set in Paris, the heartwarming tale follows a family of aristocratic cats who embark on a thrilling adventure to reunite with their beloved owner, Madame Adelaide. With memorable characters like Duchess, Thomas O’Malley, and the mischievous kittens, the film celebrates themes of family, friendship, and adventure, resonating with audiences of all ages for its delightful animation and unforgettable music.

The Charm of Aristocats-Inspired Designs

Both of the Aristocats handbag collections feature the main characters, Duchess, Thomas O’Malley, and the cute kitties, Berlioz, Toulouse, and Marie.

In the 2016 allover print, the cats are shown in a variety of situations, including the three kittens having fun adventures and getting into mischief, Thomas O’Malley and Duchess sharing some romantic moments and Scat Cat and Thomas O’Malley dancing.

The Aristocats Collection from 2022 includes two different designs. The artwork for the satchel-style bag and hobo bag features the three kittens on an allover pattern. Additionally, the artwork includes pink roses and thin blue ribbons against a white background.

Meanwhile, the tote bag features a scene of Thomas O’Malley, Duchess and the three kittens sitting together on a blue sofa. Framing them are pink flowers with green leaves.
