LACOSTE and DISNEY unite for a unique collaboration which brings together Mickey & Minnie Mouse and the Crocodile who celebrate respectively their 90th and 85th anniversaries. A novel sporting event immortalised by an exclusive souvenir capsule collection which is sure to be inspiring for adults and aspirational to young children.
Mickey Mouse, the “True Original”, and his sweetheart Minnie have inspired the brand new collection, consisting of nearly 30 different bespoke nostalgic designs in clothes, sneakers and leather goods. In addition to embroidery, LACOSTE innovates with 3D printing and expert pique applications to redraw the profile of these two timeless and universal figures in a modern way. Faithful to the 2 worlds, the colour range uses conventional shades such as navy blue, white, heather grey, pale pink and touches of green combined with brighter colours such as a clear blue or a brilliant red.
For a touch of nostalgia, Disney’s “True Original” strikes a pose on five men’s articles with a slightly retro look. Embroidered with a racket in his hand on the front of a plain or striped polo shirt, he displays his beloved personality and mischievous ways on a T-shirt as the match goes on. A hoodie reproduces the graphics of the polo shirt in outsize form on the front while Mickey’s silhouette is printed on the back. A striped sweater and a sweatshirt display the features of the Disney icon, whose famous ears are adorned with a tennis headband.
Many fans around the world love Minnie Mouse as the true fashion icon. Elegant and dressed in a pleated shirt, she is ready to serve, embroidered on a polo shirt or printed as a silhouette on the front and back of a fleece dress. Embroideries and pique applications combine to form her friendly face, with a peaked cap on her head, on the front of a striped sweater or a sweatshirt.
Young children don’t have to miss out either, as the adult polo shirts and sweatshirts come in children’s sizes as well, with 2 models which are complemented by a T-shirt carrying a picture of Mickey Mouse for boys and Minnie Mouse for girls.
Practical and playful, a backpack printed all over with a black Mickey Mouse silhouette, a double-carry leather L.12.12 bag and 2 blue or red petit pique PVC reversible tote bags are decorated with the faces of Mickey or Minnie Mouse, not forgetting small leather articles such as a men’s and women’s wallet, a round purse and a zip-up pouch which join forces with the textile line.
To complete the look, the range includes canvas sneakers in adult and children’s versions. White and decorated with a black Mickey Mouse silhouette on the heel, they come with an all-over print for young children.
A collection which combines fashion and emotion for a comfortable and stylish look back in time, these articles will be available from 14 November in all LACOSTE stores worldwide.
