Disney’s hot favorite- Mickey Mouse has played muse to an umpteen number of designers. And the latest in line to follow the trend is Gucci which recently unveiled an entire capsule collection that is themed behind our beloved big-eared – yes, that’s right – Mickey Mouse!
Introduced in commemoration of the Chinese New Year, the exclusive ensemble features women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, footwear, small leather goods, scarves, jewelry and several accessories featuring the brand’s signature motif along with imagery of the favored cartoon.
At the core of the collection is a beige and ebony fabric that showcases a vintage signature Gucci pattern from the Eighties replicated via digital printing along with the image of the cartoon character in varying scales. The eclectic fabric and design can be seen on a new Mini GG Supreme canvas as well as on handbags and small leather goods ranging from small bucket bags and mini backpacks to wallets, passport cases, and iPhone covers.
The Florentine fashion house also roped in photographer and director Harmony Korine to shoot a dedicated advertising campaign for the collection that features brand ambassador and actress Ni Ni, actor Earl Cave and designer and poet Zoë Bleu against beautiful backdrops in Disneyland. Gucci’s Mickey-Mouse themed capsule collection will be available at the select (Gucci) stores worldwide as well as at a series of ‘Gucci Pin’ pop-up stores throughout this month. Fancy yourself some Mickey inspired fashion?
