Even as an “adult” I still feel I need a bit of Disney in my life. I don’t have a child that I can use as an excuse for a Friday night Disney binge, so I’m just going to come out and say it… Yes, it might be sentimental and saccharine and totally twee but I. Love. Disney. I almost revel in being ill just so I can stick on Lady and the Tramp or the Little Mermaid and feel that warm, velvety hug that comes from nostalgic escapism and believing in fairytales.
And I know I’m not the only one. Fashion says I’m not. Disney collabs have been ever prevalent for the last few years and I am celebrating that with a round up of my favourites so far. Because we all need a little sartorial escapism from time to time, and this hoodie makes me feel like Cinder-f*cking-rella.
(bonus points if any of you recognised the Pretty Woman swears there. Another film I recommend you watch on a “sick day”.)
Disney X Lazy Oaf
What would Walt create if he was a rebellious teenager living in East London? Why this of course…
Disney | Christopher Ræburn
You know those cuddly toy backpacks you used to carry at school? This is your high-fashion, grown-up equivalent. CR takes Mickey Mouse and gives him a baby soft leather makeover. And there’s even one in nudey pink…
Oh, how I wanted this sweatshirt, oh how I NEEDED this sweatshirt. But alas, I never managed to obtain it. Ah well, I’ve got Bambi on blu-ray. #winning
Bobby Abley X Disney
Street style meets couture meets Disney. And they’re all very happy to know each other.
Disney X Coach
The marriage of two classic American powerhouses. Think understated, subtle touches of Mickey on your leatherwear.
So there we have it. The perfect dose of fashion fodder to fuel a dewy-eyed trip down memory lane. Go on, stick on Toy Story, you know you want to…
