This month, British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn teams up with Disney to reimagine the world’s favourite cartoon couple, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Using the Christopher Raeburn animal mascots that accompany each season’s collection as the blueprint for the design, Raeburn has created two luxury unisex styles featuring the iconic talking mice. The designer has worked closely with Disney to ensure the accuracy of the characters, whilst staying true to the brand’s ethos of sustainability. The bags are made from ethically sourced nappa leather or organic European milled indigo denim. The multi-purpose design has a zipped compartment at the back of the body and a strap that adjusts to two lengths. The straps can be worn over the shoulder or held around the wrist. Each bag is sophisticatedly presented in a reusable hexagonal box. Easily flat packed and made from 100% recycled materials, the packaging has been produced by Christopher Raeburn's close manufacturing partner, Avery Dennison RBIS.
Mickey and Minnie will debut during London Fashion Week and are available today in Selfridges and The Conran Store in London, plus a host of international retail partners. The Minnie style will also be available in pink nappa leather, exclusively at Selfridges.
