Y2K fashion is back in vogue now, and for a sweet nostalgic blast to the past, even top fashion brands are inspired by our childhood reading material — the quirky characters of the Mr. Men & Little Miss franchise.
Here to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the illustrated series, Parisian creative studio Sandro has given us the most comprehensive capsule collection yet, of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and bucket hats, of course, that capture the playful nature of Mr. Happy, Little Miss Sunshine, and their friends.
Printed tees feature original interpretations of the characters, where we see Little Miss Fabulous on a postcard from Paris, for instance, while plenty of the apparel and accessories take on embroidery patches for a subtle flair. Even if you don’t feel especially buoyant, rest assured, Mr. Messy and Little Miss Bad are still part of the crew — and available this month at Sandro boutiques.
For an extension of the happy crew, trendy tech accessories brand Casetify has also dreamt up a series of phone and earbuds cases that pay tribute to the classic characters. Their designs look like they could be part of our old-school sticker collection, while you’ll be able to add custom text to the cases to truly make it your own. Elsewhere, we even spotted kids collaborations with Cath Kidston and Marks & Spencer, as well as a grown-up hoodie from Italian streetwear label GCDS.
