If there is one thing in the world that is loved by the young and old — it would be Disney. Movie after movie, we just can’t get enough of their catchy tunes and the characters’ infectious laughter.
Which is why so many fashion and lifestyle brands are fussing over Mickey, Minnie or the ever-evolving line of Disney Princesses. Here’s a fun fact: Disney’s first collaboration with clothes was a fashion show held in 1978 called ‘The Evolution of American Women’.
With Mickey Mouse’s upcoming 90th birthday in November this year, we’ve put together a list of Disney’s biggest collaborations with everyone’s favourite brands.
POH HENG X MICKEY MOUSE
To celebrate the 90th anniversary of our favourite mouse, Singapore jeweller, Poh Heng has collaborated with TWDC SEA Disney to present us with a gorgeous jewellery line. Adorn your body with exquisite pieces— either in 18K white gold or 22K yellow gold. Coming in two key styles, Mickey and Minnie’s silhouettes are encrusted with diamonds. Be it blinging up an extravagant outfit or completing a casual one, the minimalistic design makes it a perfect accessory. If diamonds are your best friend, then this collection is definitely for you.
Mickey & Minnie Stunning Silhouette Collection. Available at all Poh Heng boutiques from end Oct.
NIXON X MICKEY MOUSE
There really isn’t a better way to find out if you’re a true Mickey fan, than to check out Nixon’s latest ‘Mickey the True Original’ collection. Tiny details make up each watch, like Mickey Mouse’s ears on the eyelet holes (and did you notice Mickey’s buttons detail on the clasp?). Talk about hidden Mickeys! The watch collection also features a rare multi-layered dial application. We bet that you will have fun looking out for Mickey’s characteristics like how the team at Nixon had fun designing the collection.
Mickey the True Original Collection. Available at Nixon Capitol Piazza, TANGS at Tang Plaza, TANGS Vivocity, Robinsons The Heeren and online.
UNIQLO X MICKEY MOUSE
We love Uniqlo for their basic pieces, and even more so for their not-so-basic pieces. Designer Kate Moross managed to make every piece from the Love & Mickey Mouse collection unique and crazily colourful. We also found out which one’s her favourite piece from the collection! Coming in a slightly oversized fit, the Women’s line features similar prints to the Kids’ line. The squiggly doodles are eye-catching and like no other.
Love & Mickey Mouse Collection. Available in Uniqlo stores and online.
MELISSA X DISNEY
Are you really stepping into the magical world if you’re not wearing Melissa’s latest collab with Disney? Gladiator sandals have taken on a new form — with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald printed on the insoles. And get ready to twin with your child with the Mini Melissa shoes, which are easy to wash and great for Summer. Let’s take a moment to admire the cute appliques at the toes!
Melissa x Disney Capsule Collection. Available at Melissa retail stores and online.
CATH KIDSTON X DISNEY
The British brand has always been popular with Singaporeans, so we can imagine the disappointment when they pulled out of our local markets last year — not to matter though. Now, the brand is back, and better than ever. In celebration of Cath Kidston’s 25th anniversary, the brand launched the Alice in Wonderland x Cath Kidston range in early May. Next up, they’ve got a Snow White collection, which will be available from 20th September. We adore the whimsical prints and pretty pastels on the Dwarfs And Blossom PJ Set. The Snow White Forest Scene Kids Mini Rucksack features some of Snow White’s most prominent characters. With a pink backdrop, flowers, and forest animals all over the bag, we can’t help but wish we were a kid again!
Disney Snow White x Cath Kidston Collection. Available at TANGS at Tang Plaza and online.
TOMS X DISNEY
The company best known for donating one pair of shoes for every new purchase of TOMS shoes has come up with four different styles (Alpargatas, Lenny Sneakers, Carmel Sneakers & TOMS Classics) of TOMS footwear. And they all feature magical artworks from an all-female team of artists. TOMS went into the Walt Disney Archives and featured original sketches from classic Disney films. What’s best is, some of the shoes are made without animal ingredients or by-products, making them vegan-friendly!
Disney Snow White Collection. Available online.
H&M X DISNEY
Another major clothing store has hopped on to the Disney bandwagon. H&M has collaborated with the beloved character to come up with something for everyone. The mouse is plastered everywhere — from sweatshirts to t-shirts to dresses. And we are certain that you will be able to match these classic pieces with any bottom!
The Mickey Mouse Collection. Available in selected H&M stores and online.
:CHOCOOLATE X MICKEY
To pay homage to Mickey’s legendary journey during the past 90 years, :CHOCOOLATE is presenting us with a collection through the art of fashion. You know you can always count on :CHOCOOLATE to release fashionably attractive pieces. Retro designs against bright colours, there is something for everyone. We have prints of both Mickey and Minnie, and we have :CHOCOOLATE’s signature monochromatic stripes and polka dots. Take your pick!
MICKEY MOUSE Collection by :CHOCOOLATE. Available in stores from 27 Sept.
COLOURPOP X DISNEY
There are plenty of Colourpop products that we love, but this one won our hearts immediately! We’re certain that you have played dress-up as a Disney princess before, so why not try dressing up for real, with Colourpop’s Disney princesses collection. In the same amazing formulas, the products come in cute shades, perfect for everyday use.
Colourpop x Disney Princesses Collection. Available for purchase from September 28th onwards on Colourpop’s website.
UNIQLO UT X MICKEY
Two pop icons are joining hands! Mickey Mouse and Andy Warhol collaborate to bring us a collection like no other. Pop art designs of Mickey are printed across the t-shirts, sweat shirts and sweat dresses. There are even kids’ items for family coordination fun!
DISNEY MICKEY MOUSE Art by ANDY WARHOL Collection. Out in Uniqlo stores and online from 1 Oct.
