In 2023, you’d be hard pressed to find somebody without core childhood memories related to Disney. After bringing an invaluable sense of magic and play to cinema for generations, it’s only right to celebrate 100 years of Disney in style. This year, Create 100 marks the centennial with a series of one-of-a-kind, Disney-inspired donation pieces created by iconic fashion designers in collaboration with up-and-coming creatives to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation.
A first look at the Create 100 designs, seen on @DisneyStyle’s social media pages, includes a wearable crystal sculpture by Schiaparelli’s Creative Director Daniel Roseberry. This glamorous piece, inspired by the Disney fan-favorite Rescuers Down Under, perfectly merges Roseberry’s ornate artistry with the film’s lively animation style.
Next up, French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela contributes a one-of-a-kind t-shirt inspired by Mickey Mouse himself. Featuring the Recicla label, denoting it as part of the brand’s sustainable initiative, the rough edges and deconstructed shape make this piece quintessentially Margiela.
Legendary American label Tommy Hilfiger reimagines their beloved varsity jacket, an iconic symbol of American style, with an embroidered Manga Mickey & Friends design and crocheted Mickey detailing. Seen before in the Summer Pre-Fall 2023 ‘Disney x Tommy’ capsule collection, Manga Mickey & Friends bring a playful, graphic touch to this wardrobe staple.
A partner of Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s Place Program, an initiative founded by Hilfiger to make fashion accessible to marginalized communities, Cotte D’Armes Creative Director Clarence Ruth draws on their passion for storytelling and animation to reimagine the beloved Tommy Hilfiger polo shirt as a Mickey Mouse inspired ballgown.
Along with these newly unveiled pieces, the Create 100 celebration will also see fashion, artwork, musical elements, and more by beloved names like Beyoncé, Christian Louboutin, adidas, Coach, and Pandora throughout the summer.
