“I was so excited to look through the Disney archives and really bring a sense of nostalgia to our exclusive range. “ stated the Markus Lupfer when speaking about his collaboration with Disney. The saying “We are never too old for a Disney movie” appears to apply to the clothes as well! Markus Lupfer, known for his sequinned sweaters, launched a capsule collection featuring the unmistakable Mickey Mouse on July 15th. The designer shares with us his playfulness and love for Mickey with the collaboration with Disney’s and their most iconic character, embossed upon the luxury of 100% merino wool and soft cotton of the sweaters.
I was so inspired by the original hand drawings of all the characters that I really wanted to bring them to life on our signature sequin jumpers.
From the ‘Dancing Vintage Mickey’ sweater to the ‘Winking Mickey’ number, the pieces span the colour wheel in shades of circus red, cloud pink, royal blue and neutrals of black, white and marl grey.
The Mickey Mouse-fronted takes were graphically handcrafted in colourful sparkle onto each of the Markus Lupfer’s trademark sequin pieces.
This collection is the fantastic result of the collaboration between two brands sharing the same passion for design and creativity.
It is now available throughout Europe, Asia & USA. Stockists include Selfridges, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Liberty, Net-A-Porter.com (UK/ US), Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Colette, I.T, Lane Crawford and the Markus Lupfer online store. Prices start at £210.
