Mickey Mouse fashion trend


We all recall our friendship with that large eared character from our younger days. Because not only was he thoroughly entertaining to that tiny six year old, but he was everything that that time stood for; innocence, all round goodness and some great T.V.

The icon that is Mickey Mouse debuted alongside Minnie Mouse in 1928. Fast forward to 2010 and his unchanged face is still in our hearts...

It's hard to say where the fascination started but it happened and before you knew it, Mickey had returned in the form of fashion statements, accessories in big budget music videos and landed in some of your favorite high-street stores. Of course it all started when Lady Gaga appeared in her popular video for  'paparazzi' wearing the Jeremy Scott glasses. These are the same ones that would later be worn by Beyoncé in their 'telephone' video. It didn't take long before Rihanna followed suit with her newer tough-girl image and her own set of ears.

Supposedly the main reason Disney added the white gloves was to allow audiences to distinguish the characters' hands when they appeared against their black bodies. The three black lines on the backs of the gloves represent darts in the gloves' fabric extending from between the digits of the hand, typical of kid glove design of the era.

Look of the day - Part 19

Paul Smith Jeans 2010 Fall/Winter Collection

paul smith jeans 2010 fallwinter collection 0 Paul Smith Jeans 2010 Fall/Winter Collection

As modelled by Yuri Pleskun, here’s a look at the latest lookbook from the Paul Smith Jeans line, showcasing the sub-brand’s 2010 Fall/Winter collection. Opting for a seasonal and snowy shoot, this selection of previews highlights the English brand’s use of simple layering. The styling here is smart; the lookbook is able to display standout looks despite its simplistic use of colors and classic cuts. Whilst obviously aiming for the middle ground, the collection has enough simple flair to appeal to a more fashion conscious audience.
Releases should be underway and will continue over the next few weeks.

Yves Behar for Issey Miyake Vue Watch – A Closer Look

issey miyaki vue timepiece 1 Yves Behar for Issey Miyake Vue Watch   A Closer Look

The Vue by Yves Behar for Issey Miyake watch combines the longtime innovation of the Japanese designer with the industrialism of Behar. Sleek and minimal, the watch features a round frame, solid band with a vanishing dial. To add uniqueness to this collaboration, the watch only features one numeral at a time and fades out as time passes. The duo didn’t stop there, as the watches box is made out of what appears to be sticky notes on top of each other. Available in 5 variations, ranging from a metal or leather band to a white, black or brown colorway. Further information is available here.
