On the occasion of the Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary, Disney has collaborated with the region’s high-street brand; Splash Fashions, along with four influencers on a special limited-edition Mickey collection. The global celebrations of Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary have taken the fashion scene by storm, seeing fashion houses around the world pay homage to the true original with one-off creative collaborations.
For the very first time, and in keeping with its locally-minded ethos, Disney and Splash invited four sought-after local faces to join its design team in order to express their individual interpretation of Mickey Mouse’s legacy. The influencers involved in this playful design opportunity are; Mohanad Al Hattab, Mthayel Al Ali, Fouz Al Fahad and Ahmed Al Nasheet.
Invited behind the scenes at Splash’s in-house design department, these four hand-picked influencers began their dream co-designing their very own limited-edition collection alongside the Splash design team. Each individual was allowed the freedom to experiment with potential design options using iconic imagery of Mickey to create these unique pieces.
Creative brainstorming, laughter and learning played a big part of this process and both Splash and the design group are incredibly excited by the results as seen in the new collection. Mohanad, Mathyel, Fouz and Ahmed will be visiting select stores in KSA, Bahrain , UAE and Kuwait over the coming weeks to launch their designs and the collection, which are available in select Splash stores across the GCC region. Their designs combine their signature style with Mickey’s nostalgic fashion charisma, which results in monochrome leisure wear, 90’s denim fashion flare and bold Mickey and Minnie prints throughout the past ninety years.
What’s even better is that the photo-shoot was shot in the magic world of Disneyland Paris.
