We have Gucci to thank for bringing the fun back in fashion ever since Alessandro Michele took the reins behind the Florentine fashion house. Last year, the brand released a Chinese New Year's collection featuring Walt Disney characters, The Three Little Pigs. Of course, the quirky designs were too adorable for words!
This year, the brand is celebrating the Lunar New Year in a more elaborate way as evidenced by the just-released Gucci x Disney capsule collection! Yep, there's a whole exclusive collection dedicated to the world's beloved cartoon mouse. The brand announced the collaboration through a fresh campaign set in the happiest place on earth, with models decked out in garb featuring a reinvented Mini GG Supreme canvas emblazoned with Mickey Mouse characters.
If monogrammed clothes aren't your thing though, we have some good news for you: The collection also carries sorbet-colored sweatshirts featuring the Gucci logo covered with a smiling Mickey. Looking for something warm-fuzzy? There are also cozy wool sweaters with an argyle-like Mickey Mouse print. If you want subtle touches though, there are also timepieces, socks, and scarves for the taking. The real keepers, however, would definitely be the complete range of canvas bags that include bucket bags, shoulder bags, and even a backpack!
Check out some of the campaign images below:
Gucci's been incorporating Disney motifs in various collections like its Spring/Summer 2017 show, S/S 2019 show (remember the Mickey Mouse handbag?), and its Resort 2020 show. What's so exciting about this capsule collection is its playful spin on familiar Gucci motifs—it's almost like a grownup way to show your love for everyone's childhood cartoon.

The first wave was introduced last November, and was inspired by the pins you see on digital maps. According to WWD, Mickey Mouse will now be the pin for Gucci stores on Google Maps as well as the brand's store finder tool.
