Starting May 24th, guests at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World will be able to feast their eyes on some new merchandise. Disney is unveiling a series of limited-release Mickey Mouse Ear hats and Minnie Mouse Ear headbands designed by celebrities, designers and artists!
AND the Ears will also be available on shopDisney.com.
Disney shares that the collection “will introduce signature elements of each collaborator to the iconic silhouettes of Mickey and Minnie for a never-before-seen look.”
New designs will be released each month.
Designs will include, among others, a bridal-inspired design with hand sewn crystal and pearl embroidery by Vera Wang, a crystal-encrusted ear hat from The Blonds, a pink-puffed ear headband by Betsey Johnson, a mommy-and-daughter set by Cupcakes and Cashmere and a genuine crafted leather, floral-inspired ear headband by COACH.
Heidi Klum has designed a pair which will be released this fall, and Karlie Kloss will release a pair in early 2020.
Other featured designers will include HARVEYS (pictured below), ALEX AND ANI, Loungefly and actress Ashley Eckstein for Her Universe.
