One of our favourite prints from the upcoming Mickey and Friends Disney X Cath Kidston collection features the one and only Mickey Mouse and our infamous London Guards. We leapt at the chance to use Disney’s most iconic character, and have him interact with a rather cheeky character of our own…
Our classic Guards print has become an iconic London print, beloved by our customers near and far. It was designed originally in 2012 as a partner print to our classic London scenic design, a print which we used in our very first Mickey Mouse X Disney collection. The original Guards print has a graphic, linear layout and a simple colour palette which paired perfectly with Disney’s hand-drawn sketches of Mickey and his classic red and yellow colour accents. Our design team were inspired by primary colours throughout the process of creating prints for this collection and also added a pink and a soft grey to the palette.
We love to celebrate our Britishness and sense of humour in our prints wherever we can, so it was only right to weave cheeky illustrations of Mickey Mouse in his most typical poses, with our not-so-serious Guards!
