In celebration of the new film, Mary Poppins Returns, Trunk Club and Academy Award-winning® costume designer Sandy Powell, hosted an event to unveil a curated series of modern-day looks, inspired by the film. Hosted at Trunk Club’s Los Angeles Clubhouse, guests enjoyed a live model presentation showcasing Sandy Powell’s curated looks for men and women, and perusing artifacts on display from the making of the film. The collection is available for a limited time, exclusively through Trunk Club, and coincides with the film’s release in theaters on December 19, 2018.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this reimagining of a classic Disney film to bring a modern take on the costumes – perfectly tailored, timeless, and elevated – to our customers,” said Maggie Mee, head of merchandising at Trunk Club. “We understand the magical feeling that comes from finding the perfect outfit, helping people feel more confident and make even the most mundane task an extraordinary adventure.”
The curated women’s looks were created to emulate Mary Poppins’ signature style —chic with an eccentric twist—by incorporating demurely flirty pieces for the modern woman. For men, looks were inspired by Mary’s friend Jack and include classic casual pieces paired with flashes of color.
“I wanted to bring Mary Poppins’ prim and proper nature juxtaposed with a whimsical, eccentric spirit to life through the costumes,” said Sandy Powell. “The look of the movie and the clothes are elegant and refined, though never stuffy or stodgy, and include frivolous touches that pay homage to the 1930’s. We are happy to collaborate with Trunk Club to bring a modern-day twist on the looks from the movie to closets nationwide.”

About Mary Poppins Returns:
In Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns,” an all new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt (“A Quiet Place,” “The Girl on the Train”) stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.
“Mary Poppins Returns” is directed by Rob Marshall (“Into the Woods,” “Chicago“). The screenplay is by David Magee (“Life of Pi”) and the screen story is by Magee & Rob Marshall & John DeLuca (“Into the Woods”) based upon the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers. The producers are John DeLuca, p.g.a., Rob Marshall, p.g.a., and Marc Platt, p.g.a. (“La La Land”) with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. The music score is by Marc Shaiman (“Hairspray”) and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman (“Smash”) and Shaiman. The film also stars Ben Whishaw (“Spectre”) as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer (“Hugo”) as Jane Banks; Julie Walters (“Harry Potter” films) as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”) as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins“) as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.
PL Travers first introduced the world to the no-nonsense nanny in her 1934 children’s book “Mary Poppins.” However, the subsequent adventures of Mary Poppins remained only on the pages of the seven other PL Travers’ books…until now. “Mary Poppins Returns” is drawn from the wealth of material in these additional books. The film takes place in 1930s Depression-era London 24 years after the first film was set. Michael Banks works for the same financial institution that employed his father and still lives at 17 Cherry Tree Lane with his three children, Annabel, John and Georgie and their housekeeper Ellen. Carrying on in her mother’s tradition, Jane Banks campaigns for workers’ rights and provides a helping hand to Michael’s family. When the family suffers a personal loss, Mary Poppinsmagically re-enters their lives and with Jack’s help, brings joy and wonder back into their home.
“Mary Poppins Returns” will be released in U.S. theaters on December 19, 2018.
