Happy Socks has teamed up with the comedic maestro the Pink Panther for an exclusive fall/winter 2019 collection. Inspired by the 1964 hit film that introduced him to the world, the styles pay tribute to the pink prankster.

The Happy Socks x The Pink Panther capsule features seven unique pairs of combed cotton crew socks, all available as singles, and six of them as a part of 3- or 6-pack collectible gift boxes. These designs are also featured on both the men’s and women’s underwear, which are available as 2-pack gift boxes or singles.

Designs for the collection blend distinctive 1960s aesthetics with Happy Socks’ vibrant colors and a dash of his signature pinkness. Prints include the brilliant Pink Plunk Plink, mysterious Pink-A-Boo, color bursting Bomb Voyage, cheery Smile Pretty, Say Pink, and fashion-forward Jet Pink, Pink Panic. The palette plays with vibrant hues and rich shades such as persimmon orange, millennial pink and mango yellow.

Individual pairs of crew socks will be priced at $16, the 3-pack gift box at $48, and the 6-pack gift box $96. Kids socks are priced at $8, and the 4-pack gift box at $38. Men’s trunks will be priced at $29 and the 2-pack gift box at $58. Women’s cheekies are priced at $22 and the 2-pack gift box at $44.

The collection is now available at Happy Socks’ concept stores, online at happysocks.com, and at selected retailers.
