It’s no secret I’m a fan of graphic tees, particularly those with musicians or cartoon characters on. So its no surprise then that when I saw this Mickey Mouse t-shirt in Metropolis Vintage NYC I knew I was going to be walking out with it and giving it a good home. What I love about a character like this is wherever I wear it, whatever city or country I’m in, everyone knows who the beloved Walt Disney character is that’s splayed across my t-shirt.
Last year Walt Disneys iconic mouse turned 90, and became the ultimate fashion muse. For me its nostalgic, wearing a t-shirt with a character that takes me back to my childhood brings a lot of good memories. Mickey has a long history of influencing some of the greatest artists of our time, such as Jeff Koons and Gucci’s Alessandro Michele – and even Andy Warhol, cementing him in the history books as somewhat of a style icon.
