This upcoming Lunar year may technically be the that of the Rat, but this is Gucci and they don’t do rats. Only mice. Mickey to be specific. And so this year is officially the Year of the Mouse, because what Gucci says, goes. Alessandro Michele is celebrating with a special Disney-dedicated collection, an ode to Mickey Mouse. The icon has been worked into a full range of items from clothes to shoes to small leather goods. Oh, my. So where do the Gucci gang go to celebrate (and shoot the campaign)? Disneyland, duh. They ride rollercoasters in prints that are a reference to a House fabric from the ’80s, spin around in tea cups with Mini GG Supreme canvas Mick-ified handbags and run around with Mr Mouse himself in sneakers stamped with his face. Happy almost new Lunar year. To Mickey.
