Shinola And Disney Announce The Launch Of The Mickey Classics Collection
Stylish news! The launch of the new Mickey Classics Collection has been announced by Shinola and Disney. This capsule collection honors 90 years of Mickey Mouse and the collaboration is part of the “Mickey the True Original“. This is just one piece of the global celebration of Mickey’s heritage, personality and status as a pop-culture icon.
Since his big-screen debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey continues to serve as the global ambassador for The Walt Disney Company. From the beloved Mickey Mouse Club to today’s Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, the character’s optimistic outlook and endearing personality continue to delight fans around the world.
“Shinola is a company that believes in celebrating American success stories,” said Shannon Washburn, President of Shinola. “We are proud to join Disney in honoring the magic of Mickey Mouse while also commemorating the five-year anniversary of our flagship watch, the Runwell.”
Mickey Classics Collection
Mickey Classics is a collection of limited-edition and special-edition Shinola Runwell timepieces, leather goods, audio equipment, wall clocks and journals showcasing Mickey Mouse.
The Mickey Classics Collection offers five limited-edition Runwell timepieces. Each timepiece features illustrations by Disney’s character artist, Jeff Shelly. The illustrations are drawn specifically for these five Shinola watches, inspired by iconic Mickey Mouse moments such as the character’s appearance in Plane Crazy and Steamboat Willie. Limited to 90 timepieces per style in honor of Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary, each Runwell comes with one of five framed original sketches of Mickey Mouse, as well as a special-edition Shinola sketchbook with a “How to Draw Mickey” instructional booklet.
Additionally, a “How to Draw Mickey” illustration line both the leather Runwell backpack and the leather tech portfolio. The backpack also includes a hand-stitched leather appliqué of Steamboat Willie.
The Mickey Classics journals also feature a flip book that animates a scene from The Nifty Nineties (1941) created by Disney legend Fred (Freddie) Moore. Moore’s designs and animation of the spunky little star are considered seminal in Mickey’s career.
The Shinola x Disney Mickey Classics collection will be available on November 16. Furthermore, you can find the collection at Shinola.com and in Shinola stores, Disney stores and select specialty retailers. Prices range from $28 for a journal to $2,500 for a Shinola Runwell Turntable.
