Disney Brings Keith Haring's Mickey Mouse Illustrations to UNIQLO Essentials
Graphic sweatshirts pay homage to the artist and cartoon mouse.
Part of an expansive, multi-brand initiative, Disney and Keith Haring‘s estate have teamed up to spotlight the artist’s illustrations of Mickey Mouse on apparel and accessories from a range of brands. Following the release of Coach’s Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring bag collection, the duo tapped UNIQLO UT for a capsule of sweatshirts printed with graphic renditions of everyone’s favorite cartoon mouse.
Crewneck pullovers arrive in a variety of colorways, each bearing a different Keith Haring illustration on the front. A black sweater depicts Haring’s iconic figure outlines holding up a television set broadcasting Mickey’s face, while an orange option is printed with a cartoon strip of the fan favorite character. Alluding to Haring’s observation that Mickey Mouse is “ultimately a symbol of America more than anything else,” the artist’s drawings of the mouse set against a red and white-striped flag appear on navy blue and white sweatshirts.
The Disney Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring x UNIQLO UT collection is available at UNIQLO’s website.
