High Fashion’s Favourite Mouse: Mickey

Fashion’s most loveable mouse is no stranger to the catwalk and the retail sphere. This season alone, the mouse will be spotted teaming up with British print designer Cath Kidston for a fashion and interiors collection that launches on September 26th and across the pond, US retailer Gap is also teaming up with Disney for a Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed clothing line set to hit stores in October.

WGSN has tracked Mickey’s movements from a sport & street trend alert in 2010, a festival flash in 2012, and an emerging trend report to the 2014 collaboration between Copenhagen-based streetwear brand Wood Wood and Disney on their capsule collection for both men and women. The twenty-four piece collection featured Mickey Mouse stretched and distorted for an original take on the familiar cartoon.
