As part of New York design house Coach’s 75th birthday, the luxury brand has partnered with Disney on a playful limited-edition collection that pays homage to the ultimate American pop-culture icon: Mickey Mouse. The collection of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories features specially-created sketches of the loveable cartoon character designed by Disney animators, which adorn everything from Coach’s trademark structured bags, to youthful graphic tees, comfy sneakers and punk-inspired studded biker jackets.

It's not the first time everyone’s favourite mouse has played fashion muse.  With Marc Jacobs, Moschino and Comme des Garçons all drawing inspiration in the past. 

“Mickey Mouse is one of my earliest memories of American pop — his nostalgic charm, cheekiness, individuality and inherent cool make for the ultimate American icon,” said Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. “I’ve always seen Mickey as a playful rebel at heart and a timeless symbol of joy and creativity. That spirit reinforces the new youthful perspective we are bringing to luxury at Coach.”
