SheFinds News: Disney Goes Bling

We long ago abandoned the sparkly crowns and gowns of our Disney Princess childhoods. But now, it seems, you have to be a princess to afford Disney. Vintage Mickey Mouse t-shirts have been creeping into stores for a couple seasons; now the whimsical animators are re-fashioning themselves to be competitors in the high-end fashion market. It’s all part of a trend, Reuters reported this month, that finds Disney re-inventing itself as a classic, all-American luxury brand. At two Los Angeles Fashion Week events, Disney previewed its new Alice in Wonderland-inspired clothing, home décor and accessories lines, which will be carried this spring by designer shops such as Fred Segal, Drexel Heritage and Zelen.

Other fashion icons are catching onto the trend, too: Dolce and Gabbana offered a $1,400 crystal-studded Mickey Mouse t-shirt and Kidada Jones, daughter of music legend Quincy Jones, will design for Disney a line of jewelery, cashmere throws and pillows. Love Disney-themed clothing but hate the luxury-brand prices? We’ve found a couple tops that are funkier than anything you’d find in the Disney store – but more affordable than anything you’d find at Fred Segal.
