The relationship between Walt Disney's beloved cartoon creations and the fashion world is a storied one, to say the least. Designers and brands have long been enamoured by Mickey, Minnie, and the rest of the happy-go-lucky crew—and now, heritage skate brand Vans is getting on board.
Vans just released a special collection of sneakers, backpacks, hats, and apparel that feature the classic characters in entirely new lights. Fun-loving prints show Minnie wearing a new pair of Vans low-rise sneakers and Winnie the Pooh carrying a skateboard crafted from the Hundred Acre Wood.
"It's so cool that Disney let us do these little homages to Vans," Vans Head Designer of Women's Accessories Hether Cook told us at a special event hosted by Vans at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. "It's something kind of unexpected. Everyone knows and loves Minnie, but when you look closer, she's got on a cute pair of Vans. It's so great."
We, for one, are completely sold—and think you will be too. Keep scrolling to see how some of our favourite street style stars have worn Disney, and to shop Vans's new collaboration now!
