I cannot wait to see what 2021 has in store for us in terms of Disney fashion! We kicking things off early with new products from iconic pop artist Keith Haring that celebrate all things Mickey Mouse! Disney has collaborated with the Keith Haring Studio to feature the artist’s iconic artwork featuring Mickey Mouse in an exciting range of apparel accessories across different brands globally through 2021.
The collection is filled with different name brands that we know and love. Styles from Uniqlo, Max Bone, and Stance are all available now. In 2021, we can look forward to more launches from Levi’s, Diamond Supply Co., Corkcicle, Swatch, Medicom, Coach, and Zara. The style and artwork of this collection highlight’s some of Haring’s most renowned work.
In 1980, Haring created original works of art featuring Mickey Mouse in a new style unique to New York City street culture, taking inspiration from both Pop Art and urban graffiti. His love for Mickey Mouse was rooted in his childhood experiences. Deeply influenced by Walt Disney and the incredible skill and mastery of American cartoonists of the 50’s and 60’s, Haring even aspired to be a cartoonist himself.
“I always wanted to work for Walt Disney when I was growing up, when I was a kid and in some ways I think he is one of the three most important artists of the 20th century along with Warhol and Picasso.” – Keith Haring
This collaboration is a continuation of Disney’s celebration of Keith Haring’s inspired artistic interpretations of Mickey Mouse which was commemorated in 2018 as part of the Mickey: The True Original Exhibition celebrating the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse.
Haring’s artwork featuring Mickey Mouse will be featured on an assortment of products across multiple brands, with Coach unveiling a new collection highlighting two artworks that will be exclusively launched with their collection.
Keith Haring’s respect and admiration for Walt Disney, especially the beloved Mickey Mouse, served as an inspiration for some of his iconic pieces. By collaborating with Disney, we are able to bring his artwork to life through a new medium and continue to celebrate his enduring influence on the art community and future generations to come.” – The Haring Studio
