Disney teams up with celeb designers, artists for new line of mouse ears

May 14th, 2019

The Mickey Mouse ear hats and Minnie Mouse ear headbands will be designed by celebrities, designers and artists. Each design will bring elements of its creator’s signature style to the much-loved silhouettes of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Other big names who have joined hands with Disney to create a new take on the popular souvenir include Heidi Klum, Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Jerrod Maruyama and John Coulter.

Wang’s bridal inspired design uses handsewn crystal and pearl embroidery, while Johnson’s creation is a puffy pink headband. There’s also a regal, jewel-encrusted pair of ears designed by Klum, a “Star Wars” inspired design from actress Ashley Eckstein for Her Univers, and a headband embellished with leather flowers by Coach.

Other designs in the collection take inspiration from Disney characters and Disney Parks attractions, including an Enchanted Tiki Room-inspired creation, and designs by Disney Imagineers such as Kim Irvine, Kevin Rafferty and Joe Rohde.

The Disney Parks Designer Collection will be sold at retail outlets at Walt Disney World, Florida and Disneyland, California, as well as online. HM/JB
