Disney | Lacoste: The fashion collaboration featuring Mickey Mouse that has us all ears
Icon meets icon
Mickey Mouse is many things. A nonogenarian cartoon rodent. A gateway to childhood. A symbol of American consumerism (completed with Andy Warhol portrait) whose appeal transcends era, nation or class; and, if we're being frank, a merchandising goldmine as a result. Come November 14, the titans of celluloid and comfy cotton piqué will converge in the Disney | Lacoste collection, and we are 100% here for it.
"The mouse that started it all" will receive the embroidered, 3D-printed and appliquéd treatment on almost 30 clothing, sneaker, and leather goods styles, channeling Agassi (sans the legendarily explosive temper) with a low, low-slung headband. Minnie gets in on the action too, captured mid-serve in a sporty visor and skirt set.
Our favourite item, however, would have to be a tee that doubles as a handy guide for the appropriate responses to faults, tiebreaks and sets, illustrated by Mickey's ever-expressive mug. With offerings for men, women and children, Disney | Lacoste's roomy hoodies, cosy mariniere sweaters and striped polos are truly fun for all ages.
The Disney | Lacoste collection will be available in all Lacoste stores come 14 November.
