In addition, the Parks blog let us in on some new styles in the works. The original Cindy Sketch design that ignited the spark of Disney Dooney & Bourke madness will now be released in nylon versions, with a backpack, satchel, letter carrier and pocket satchel. These new styles are hoped to be released with the other collections on July 14, but they may appear at a later date.
What is your favorite of these new designs? Will you be lining up on July 14th?
