On Friday, UNIQLO announced that it will launch a special DISNEY MICKEY MOUSE art by ANDY WARHOL collection of T-shirts, which features the 20th century pop art legend’s unique take on the beloved icon. This instalment in the MAGIC FOR ALL project will roll out at all UNIQLO stores and through UNIQLO.com from Monday, October 1.
MAGIC FOR ALL is a global project with The Walt Disney Company that combines the fantasy, magic and adventure of Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar with UNIQLO LifeWear, immersing people in excitement all year round through an array of unique variations.
Recognised today as a pop icon, Mickey Mouse is known around the world and beloved by artists including Andy Warhol. The new collection showcases art from the Myths portfolio of screen-prints and silkscreen paintings that Warhol created in his inimitable style in 1981 in collaboration with New York’s Ronald Feldman Gallery and with Disney. It celebrates the 90th birthdays this year of both Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Warhol.
The diverse design treatments of this special UT collection celebrate the repetition and colouring techniques that made Warhol such a ground-breaking artist, featuring a single Mickey Mouse from his Double Mickey Mouse piece and even a triple Mickey Mouse. As well as T-shirts, the collection will also include Sweat Shirts and Sweat Dresses, as well as kids’ items for family coordination fun.
The DISNEY MICKEY MOUSE art by ANDY WARHOL collection will launch in all stores, with the exception of the Men’s Sweat Shirts and Women’s Sweat Pullovers, which will be launched in selected stores only. Extra sizes will be available online for selected pieces as well.
As a special treat, commemorative shopping bags are available while stocks last for buyers of the Disney Mickey Mouse art by Andy Warhol collection. This offer is valid for both in-store and online purchases, and is not to be missed for Mickey and Warhol fans alike!
