LOVE are celebrating their 5th anniversary and playfully doing so by paying tribute to everyone’s favorite Disney fashion icon, Minnie Mouse.
The ‘Sweetie’ Issue for Autumn/Winter 2013 cover was inspired by photographer Herb Ritts portrait of Madonna seductively wearing Minnie Mouse ears. The cover models for this issue are editor-in-chief, Katie Grand’s favorite models including Cara Delevingne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Edie Cambell, Georgia May Jagger, Chiharu Okunugi and not forgetting Minnie Mouse herself.
Fashion houses Dior, Prada, Miu Miu, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jake and Dinos Chapman for Louis Vuitton, Loewe and Gucci designed the Minnie Mouse ears worn by the models exclusively for LOVE. The covers photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott are urban styled with the LOVE logo bearing Minnie Mouse’s famous polka dots.
The Minnie Mouse takeover continues on the LOVE website, when entering the site an animated tour directs us through the cover photographs, with romantic video clips from the early Mickey and Minnie cartoons, animated polka dots, hearts and bows cascading behind the models to the sound of Minnie Mouse’s laugh and magic Disney twinkles.
The issue is available from the 29.7.13, until then check out the cover models below…
