Naturally, we are obsessed. “Forever 21 is a leader in delivering on-trend fashions, and the new Mickey & Co. line is sure to be a hit with their guests and Disney fans everywhere,” gushes Stephen Teglas, vice president of licensing, Disney Consumer Products as he explains the decision to partner with Forever. “Mickey Mouse is a global icon with a fun and optimistic energy that inspires us all, and translates perfectly into fashion.”
Global icon indeed. The new merchandise, which is already for sale, bearing the likeness of the global icon feature 46 pieces including reversible pop-over sweatshirts, oversized tees with rolled and tacked sleeves, denim on denim with a two pocket chambray shirt, and a screened denim jacket. “We are excited to re-introduce this retro streetwise-style into our Forever 21 stores with Mickey Mouse, a character that has influenced pop culture worldwide,” explains Betsy Zanjani, Forever 21 senior vice president of product design on the new offerings.
