Our Favourite Bugaboo Special Edition Collaborations
The Bugaboo collaborations are always exciting, and often have a high wantability factor – remember the Missoni version? How cool – and if something has Rachel Zoe’s seal of approval, we definitely want it too. Here are the most memorable Bugaboo collaborations, starting with the newest: Bugaboo + the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
Said to be a celebration of Andy Warhol’s love for children’s inquisitive and creative minds, the collection is available from May 2013 – and it’s apparently the start of a multi-year creative collaboration. Choose between black cars or vibrant red flowers!
Even more exclusive was the 2012 collaboration with Swedish kid’s label Mini Rodini: only 20 numbered Bugaboo Cameleon were ever made. Being a little partial to Scandi design, The Little Style Book would have loved one… we think it’s adorable.
The Neiman Marcus Special Edition of the Bugaboo Cameleon features a silver metallic tailored fabric set. Yours for ££826.66, available from Neiman Marcus.
2008 brought us a very sleek Bugaboo: Marc Jacobs created an all black version of the Cameleon, with ‘love Marc’ scribbled all over the canopy. Only 15 were made, and sold at exclusive stores such as Colette in Paris and Selfridges in London. Well, these days at least the all black chassis is available for both the Cameleon and the Bee…
The Little Style Book has a soft spot for Liberty prints, so the Bugaboo + Liberty collaboration was right up our alley. Only ten were available, exclusively in store at Liberty. The design was taken from the Liberty Art Fabrics collection, and is based on an un-dated abstract check found on a small, loose textile sample from The Liberty Archive. The sample was named ‘TV Ted’.
This, however, wasn’t the most limited Bugaboo collaboration. Apparently there was a Hello Kitty collaboration in 2008, celebrating Hello Kitty’s 35th anniversary. Only eight were ever made, and sold exclusively in Hong Kong.
When the Missoni + Bugaboo collaboration was announced, we were very excited to see the results. The vibrant design definitely stands out, and it should come as no surprise that this was super-stylist Rachel Zoe’s choice for baby Skyler.
This season, neon colours are everywhere, and Bugaboo have launched the neon collection to match. The Bee and the Cameleon have both been given a colourful makeover – vibrant tomato accents for the Cameleon, and neon yellow for the Bee. The Cameleon is available from John Lewis, £869, as is the Bee, at £529.
Viktor & Rolf for Bugaboo, a.k.a. ‘My First Car’ sported a sleek design, evoking the image of a luxury car: a grey anodised chassis with a grey sports car-style fabric, a leather-look canopy and a matching leather-look wheel skin, hand-stitched to the handle bar. But hurry up, this limited edition will only be on sale until September 2013 or while supply lasts.
Bugaboo has also created a number of limited edition pushchairs in support of the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS – Bugaboo RED – but we’ll save these for another day!
