In one of the most exciting – and unexpected – collaborations of 2018, Karen Walker has just announced she has designed a capsule collection with arguably the most popular pop culture icon of all time – Mickey Mouse!
Fresh from making a splash on the international fashion scene when Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, wore a Karen Walker plaid trench coat and accessories during her Australian and New Zealand tours, Karen has been chosen among a select group of brands including Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Opening Ceremony to design what could be the brand’s most iconic collaboration to date – a limited-edition capsule collection honouring Mickey Mouse on what will be his 90th birthday.
With blocked pastel colour-ways, bold smatterings of polka dots and nods to the fun-love spirit of Mickey and his friends (hello those Minnie Mouse glasses!), the eclectic collection has brilliantly channelled the magic, adventure and whimsy synonymous with the global powerhouse.
Among the 28-piece collection – which features eyewear, T-shirts, sweatshirts, jewellery, accessories and kitchenwear designs – is Mickey Mouse toting the Karen Walker Runaway Girl’s signature bindle, her most popular fine jewellery pieces.
The collection is now available in Karen Walker stores across New Zealand, but be quick, because these will be gone faster than Mickey Ears at a Disney convention!
