This September, British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn teamed up with Disney to reimagine the world’s favorite 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.
“To work with the Walt Disney Company is not only a huge honor, it’s thrilling to create something that really represents exactly what we’re about as a brand.” said Christopher Raeburn. “Collaboration, playfulness and innovative design are in our DNA, and this project has all these elements.”
Christopher Raeburn worked closely with Disney to ensure the accuracy of the characters, whilst staying true to the brand’s ethos of sustainability.
“The design was honed over a whole year, working with Disney’s character artist. We also worked hard to source the best materials and reduce waste on the packaging.”
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.
