Originally previewed during the 2019 Kith Air Fashion show, Kith is finally offering an official first look of its upcoming collaboration with Disney. Although Kith recently collaborated with Disney on an Iceberg collection, this particular collab ranks as one of Kith’s biggest collaborations to date. It also marks the first time Disney has ever given so much creative control to a collaboration partner.

The collection features Mickey Mouse through 8 decades of various appearances, including Steamboat Willie (1920), Running Mickey (1930), and Fantasia Mickey (1940). Each variation is meant to highlight the hallmark character’s progression through the years, and the signature pieces reflect his eclectic history through its new fabrications.

The assortment spans approximately 80 – styles of co-branded apparel, footwear, and accessories for adults and kids. These items include creates an assortment of denim styles, double pocket hoodies, trucker jackets, and kimonos. Kith has also used Converse’s Chuck Taylor 1970 silhouette for three different Mickey Mouse-themed colorways.

Had such an amazing experience working with Disney on this project. I remember telling people how much I wanted to work on a Mickey project for the brand back in 2011, the year we launched and I’ve spoken about it every year since. One of my personal goals was always to grow Kith to a place where we could work with the brands that inspired me most in my life. To be able to design a Mickey collection inspired by his 90 year history was a lot of fun and a lot of work. If you can’t have fun with it, what’s the point? Thank you to the Disney team for trusting us to do right by their most beloved icon. I’ve done so much research on Mickey and his history, I literally feel like I’ve lived with him the last 14 months. I can’t wait to explain the process and mindset for this collection. We’ll start with the journal for now to show some inspiration and behind the scenes of a few shoots. Link in bio.
