Usually well known for the classic and timeless statement that their accessories make, Coach is going in a decidedly more trendy direction with their new collection. The fashion house’s executive creative director Stuart Vevers is supposedly a Disney addict and his love for the company’s iconic characters led him to collaborate with Disney over a limited edition collection of bags, sportswear, and footwear. The collection is a tribute to the ever-popular Mickey Mouse who features on every item.
This collection is all about tiny details. You won’t find too many big splashy cartoons or logos. In their place are small but recognisable details like the famous ears or those gloved, four fingered hands.
“We only did Mickey, the icon—it’s America’s leather house with America’s mouse!” said Vevers.
“It’s fun to do something you don’t tell anyone about, sort of buy-it-now, a big surprise! Fashion should be like that,” he added.
The collection includes some familiar shapes and designs including bags like the Saddle and the Dinky.
We love this backpack in an eye-catching red hue, complete with Mickey’s gloved hand.
Coach’s Skinny tote bag appears in the collection featuring Mickey’s yellow show and a small engraving of the animated mouse.

If you can only have one piece from this collection, it has to be this red purse with mouse ears that’s equal parts chic and fun.
You wouldn’t expect a leather biker jacket to have a Mickey Mouse embellishment on the back, but this one does it tastefully.
The collection is already available for purchase at the Coach store in Soho, New York, and at Colette, in Paris. It will hit Coach’s e-store and Coach stores across the globe on June 17.
