COACH X MICKEY MOUSE X KAITH HARING

 

This quirky new collaboration between Coach, Disney and Keith Haring has got us smiling from ear to ear.

Cheeky illustrations of Mickey Mouse have been reimagined in the style of iconic queer pop-artist Haring's unique aesthetic. 

Haring, who passed away in 1990 from Aids-related complications, dreamed of working for Disney once upon a time - making the collaboration a touching way of honouring late artist.
