In a world where the appearance of the company mascot (and their relationship to cultural norms regarding sexuality and gender) are discussed endlessly, one of the most iconic figures has entered the gladiator arena, and this time, she is wearing pants.
Disneyland Paris, the sprawling entertainment complex outside Paris, announced on Wednesday that Minnie Mouse will wear her first full bodysuit as part of the park’s 30th anniversary celebration. And what’s more, it was designed by famous British fashion designer Stella McCartney.
Somewhere, someone was angry and yearning for Minnie’s trademark flowers.
The design itself is pretty innocuous; It’s a standard long piece, adorned with Minnie’s iconic polka dots and molded in royal blue that appears to be part of the celebration’s overall color palette. It’s unclear exactly if Minnie wears this outfit when she’s walking around the park (another video suggested she’ll be rocking some near-future jewelry, maintaining her floral dress and blouse combination) or if the outfit will only be used for special merchandise for the celebration (of which there will be many). Wherever it ends, Minnie looks sharp as hell.
Minnie Mouse has always been a fashion icon. Since she debuted alongside Mickey Mouse in the groundbreaking animated short film “Steamboat Willie” in 1928, she’s gone through a number of famous looks, including the “Totally Minnie” phase into the late 1980s, which saw her embrace a Madonna-like look (she also later wore pants) and sing “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” with Elton John.
More recently, she participated in an ongoing merchandise show called Rock the Dots, which has seen her trademark polka dots updated and transformed by a number of brands. famous fashion brands and in different collections.
The new clothing set, designed by a true celebrity of the fashion world, is a continuation of Minnie’s legacy as a pioneer in style and a great step in the right direction for Minnie. (stay away from those flowery people). Just prepare yourself for the “speech”.
