Cute Alert: Asos x Minnie Mouse Ears

asosdisney Cute Alert: Asos x Minnie Mouse Ears %tag

I have made no secret of being a lover of cute, whether that’s an adorable piece of jewellery made even cutier by my favourite doll Barbie, or a statement sweater of a basically any animal alive and now I have to add Minnie Mouse ears to my ever-growing wish list.

These beauties are part of Asos’ exclusive collaboration with Disney and I can’t quite decide which pair of Minnie Mouse ears are my favourite. Of course Minnie’s timeless and signature polka dots are high on my list, but I can’t help but be seduced by the fun leopard print ones, the pom pom beauties and the festival-ready floral ‘blossom’ bow. All I know is that each pair is so cute I want them all!!!

Prices start at £10 for the classic red and white spot ears and bow Aliceband, which I have to be honest as Minnie’s signature style these might just be my favourites, but I do adore the quirkiness of the pom poms for £12 and the leopard print sequinned embellished headband for £15.

Which ears do you want to rock this summer?

Festive Cheer: Barney’s New York Electric Holiday

electric holiday Festive Cheer: Barneys New York Electric Holiday %tagI have been meaning to blog this cute festive video from Barney’s New York for a few weeks now and I kind of got distracted by the holiday season. If you haven’t seen it yet it is well worth a watch as it features some of fashions elite including Franca Sozzani, Sarah Jessica Parker, Glenda Bailey, and Cathy Horyn in the five-minute clip.

What’s so magical about this campaign is that Minnie Mouse is no different from any other girl – don’t we all daydream over owning a Lanvin dress, going to Paris to have our picture taken by the likes of Steven Klein and Mario Sorrenti, being sprayed with Tinker Bell magic dust to create the perfect model body and then walk in a fashion show wearing designs by Alber Elbaz and Nicolas Ghesquière…well I certainly do.

This is just a fun campaign for the holidays that I truly adore.

Last season Barbie came to London Fashion Week thanks to her collaboration with Sister by Sibling well it seems for spring/summer 2013 the hot trend is sure to be Minnie Mouse ears and polka dots as some of the hottest designers around have teamed up with the Disney’s most famous style icon, Minnie Mouse.

Minnie is one lucky cartoon character, she has a range of nail varnishes with OPI and Mawi created a range of jewellery inspired by her iconic silhouette, and come September she is set to get her own fashion collection designed by the likes of Giles Deacon (above), Richard Nicoll and Michael Van Der Ham, which Disney is calling ‘Minnie Mouse Must Haves’, one-off garments and accessories that will be presented during London Fashion Week.

Each designer has taken Minnie Mouse as their inspiration, so think lots of signature bows, her trademark polka dots, pops of red, as well as her iconic ears. Other designers taking part include Piers Atkinson, Bunney, Husam el Odeh in collaboration with Luke Hersheson, Katie Hillier, Lulu Guinness, Tatty Devine and Terry de Havilland. Plus there will be an “extraordinary collaboration” with Meadham Kirchhoff, the design duo known for their quirky catwalk shows – oh my I simply can not wait!!!!

All the sketches are gorgeous and have made me excited to see them in person, but I think I have to give it to Richard Nicoll and Michael Van Der Ham, their designs are whimsical and gorgeous. I am loving Nicoll’s statement ‘Minnie’ ear shoulders and the comic-book strip design, but I am a sucker for a sequinned Minnie silhouette and this one from Van Der Ham looks divine and I love that he went for black and gold rather than the traditional red. I am also glad to see Lulu Guinness designing a one-off bag and I can’t wait to see Terry de Havilland’s Minnie shoes.

Following the ‘Inspired by Minnie Mouse’ showcase, each of the ‘Minnie Mouse Must Haves’ will be available at an exclusive eBay auction, so if your bid is the highest you could come away with a fab one-off Minnie Mouse-inspired creation. Proceeds from the auction will be donated by Disney to support the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation, a British Fashion Council initiative.

Roll on London Fashion Week…not long to go now!!!
