This may be the opposite of anything “budget,” but it’s still really cool. Fashion magazine LOVE is doing a designer-inspired tribute to our girl Minnie Mouse for their Autumn/Winter 2013 issue, also their 5th anniversary, available on newsstands in the UK now.
According to LOVE’s Editor-in-Chief, Katie Grand, the idea for this special feature came from a well known photograph of Madonna donning Minnie ears in bed.
“As work began on this issue, that famous Herb Ritts shot of Madonna popped up on my Instagram feed, the one where she’s in bed wearing the Minnie Mouse ears. There was something about that look – knowing, but genuine, and genuinely sweet – that got me thinking.
“And I’ve always been a big fan of Minnie’s style and that polka-dot bow. So we set about getting my favourite girls in Minnie Mouse ears that had been enhanced by the likes of Miu Miu and Jake and Dinos Chapman for Louis Vuitton.
“But that wasn’t enough; we had to get Minnie Mouse herself in on the act too. So she flew across the Atlantic all the way from Disney World to a studio in North London so we could shoot her for the cover.”
There will be several covers, which means it’s sure to become a major collector’s edition. Look for them on Ebay with inflated prices pretty much immediately, I’m sure!
