Disney fanatics take note – you can now wear your love for the cartoon clan on your sleeves with the exclusive Disney X Coach collection, created with Coach Creative Director, Stuart Vevers. Inspired by 70s and 80s Mickey Mouse, the collaboration features handbags, backpacks and totes – in Coach’s signature styles – as well as trainers, coasters, keychains… we could go on. But, this is not your average Disney paraphernalia; the collection takes a timeless yet tongue-in-cheek approach that we just can’t get enough of. Here are the five items at the top of our wish list…
1. The leather jacket
The quintessential embellished leather jacket, with a twist. While studs decorate the cuffs, a closer look reveals a certain favourite mouse outlined on the back for a tough yet decidedly playful look.
Why we love it: Inject attitude into more casual looks and style with an oversized striped tee, cut-off denim shorts and leather espadrilles to elevate your off-duty look.
2. The trainers
With a-blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-Mickey Mouse motif at the sides and contrasting white soles, these smooth black leather trainers capture a cool, sports-luxe vibe.
Why we love it: Pairing perfectly with everything from skinny jeans to slip dresses, what’s not to love?
3. The backpack
Because one more backpack to add to your collection can’t hurt. This bold number is guaranteed to brighten any gloomy day. Playfully printed with Mickey skating along the front, it’s spacious and perfectly sized to hold everyday essentials.
Why we love it: Bold accessories never fail at making neutral looks pop, so we’ll be wearing ours with a simple LBD.
4. The clutch
Is it a clutch, it is a pouch? We say it can be whatever you want it to be. Small enough to slip into a large tote or shoulder bag, this zip-up number is as versatile as it is fun-loving. Style it with a stretch jersey dress on your next date night.
Why we love it: Not only does it boast a streamlined silhouette, it also has a wristlet that makes for easy carrying on the go.
5. The zip-up purse
This zip-up purse shaped like Mickey’s head complete with giant ears is guaranteed to get you double takes, which is why we love it. Minimally designed with a clean and compact silhouette and contrast topstitching, it can go from brunch to bar without missing a beat. A must-buy for true Disney aficionados.
Why we love it: This natural conversation starter puts us firmly in touch with our inner child. It’s a win-win.
