Highsnobiety Unveils New Collaboration With Disney

The media sensation is teaming up with the house of Mickey Mouse.

Highsnobiety, the Berlin-based media, and fashion brand is teaming up with Disney on a new collection of apparel and lifestyle goods inspired by Disney’s Fantasia in celebration of the iconic film.

Since its 1940 release, Fantasia, the animated film that features seven segments set to classical music, has received critical acclaim and a cult following for ground-breaking visual design that was well beyond its time.

The collection takes a look back on the motion picture and the ways in which it has stood at the forefront of film culture and how it symbolizes innovation. Each piece celebrates this legacy and revisits the outstanding visuals by pulling references from the movie stills and the Disney archive in general.

Scenes have been frozen and repurposed as graphics on sweatshirts and hoodies; the unmistakable Mickey Mouse character from Fantasia in robe and sorcerer hat is referenced throughout as a consistent motif across hoodies, t-shirts, caps, and tote bags.

Most notably, a new timepiece created in collaboration with UNIMATIC references the token Mickey Mouse watch memorabilia that has since become a coveted collectible.

Each timepiece comes with interchangeable straps in navy, burgundy, and black and has only been produced in a unique edition of 100. Consistent with this partnership’s decision to reinterpret heirloom moments within Disney’s history for the modern cultural pioneer. The creation of this modern watch, with references to the traditional Disney design, bridges the gap between old and new and allows a new generation to appreciate Fantasia.

When ask why the brand sought out a collaboration, Highsnobiety’s Creative Director of ECommerce, Herbert Hoffman, said;

“Fantasia and Highsnobiety share a core DNA of looking to the future of culture. It was a privilege to have access to the Disney archive to create this celebration of a film which was ahead of its time as evidenced by its continued cultural impact and reference in modern film today.”

The collection is available for purchase as of today, October 19, 2022, on Highsnobiety.com.
