Check out some of the great new merchandise below!
There will be a new Dooney & Bourke collection. It will be available at Mombasa Marketplace and Discovery Trading Company. The collection will include a satchel, crossbody and tote with a pattern that is inspired by The Lion King. They will only be available while supplies last.
