Lacoste and More Stylish Well-Wishers Celebrate Mickey Mouse's 90th Birthday
Chilhood hero Mickey Mouse (and his sweetie, Minnie) turned 90 years old yesterday, and to celebrate the momentous ocassion, many have offered gifts in the form of special-edition goods, all emblazoned with the iconic face or silhouette of the celebrant.
Take a look at some of the best collaborations highlighted by Disney:
We are are putting the following on our wish list:
That SMEG refrigerator
The Vans sneaker
The Shinola backpack (there's also a watch)
This Rag & Bone pullover (with an angry Mickey!)
Some of these will be harder to come by—can someone send over a tub of Peanut Butter Jamboree from Ample Hills Ice Cream, please?—while others are found right here, including a collaboration between the Mouse and the Crocodile, the 90-year-old American jokester and the 85-year-old French sportsman.
Lacoste, your favorite polo shirt-maker, presents an almost 30-piece capsule collection that combines nostalgia and French flair. Men have five pieces to choose from:
Note how it is the old-time Mickey (the Mickey from Steamboat Willie) that makes an appearance in all the goods, underlining his heritage (or his age?) as well as adding a retro vibe.
See also how Lacoste applies its expertise in embroidery (watch this hypnotic video) along with 3D printing and piqué applications to render Mickey onto the shirts.
To complete the look, leathergoods—a backpack, PVC tote bags, wallets, and more—are also available. Dress up as the Mouse and celebrate!
