In the last decade, Walt Disney has shaped itself into an influential player in the fashion realm launching creative and surprising partnerships with designers.
Who can forget last year’s ubiquitous $1,375 “Bambi and Female Form Print Sweater” from Givenchy that won the heart of low and high brow fashion lovers everywhere?
Or, Terry de Havilland’s black platform sandals marked with huge, red polka dot bows? One look at the risque heels and you’ll never look at Minnie Mouse the same.
Which segues to this question: What were the hottest designer collaborations of all time with Disney?
Mickey's foray into retail has proven to be a smart move considering the substantial spending power of fashionably conscious consumers who grew up watching Disney.
The home of the Mouse began this year with a bang, debuting a whimsical joint effort with Del Toro that featured ten pairs of retro loafers and sneakers. It quickly had the Internet buzzing, attracting the attention of sneaker fiends, Disney fanatics and trend watchers.
A few months later, Walt Disney topped itself by leaking the first photos of its partnership with Opening Ceremony. Per usual, the line features classic Mickey Mouse prints on retro sneakers, blouses, sweaters and sweatshirts.
Mickey zealots shouldn't fret about the Mouse limiting its image to just two collaborations, according to Disney, expect more for the year.
