In the year that the most famous Mouse of all times completes his 90th’s birthday, Mickey and his crew have the fashion visibility of supermodels and iconic brands.

Prestigious international fashion runways counted on Disney characters to impress exigent influencers, such as celebrities, editors and critics. The result is magical and full of charm… For Geoffroy de La Bourdonnaye, chief executive of Chloé, “Disney characters are so powerful in terms of collaborations with other brands [because] there’s an element of innocence, and also fantasy. You can push your imagination outside the real world and dream.”

It is a two-day narrative experience to feel a “citizen of galaxy” and forget the world around you.

Contemporary culture also adores “to gamify” public spaces which is interesting to spread brand identity. As an example, it is possible to cite Hidden Mickey that challenges Disneyland visitors to discover Mickey Mouse silhouettes on sidewalks, stores and public areas.

Through experiences that go beyond sales, Disney is an inspiring brand that empowers adult imagination and children playfulness. Such powerful feelings attached to these experiences generates brand loyalty and profitable businesses.
