One the most iconic fashion names in the world is about to collaborate with the most famous mouse in the world for the ultimate line. Coach and Disney are joining together to form Disney X Coach, which will bring forth a limited-edition collection featuring Mickey Mouse designs. Those designs will be brought to life on Coach leather goods and some ready-to-wear fashions in a line that surely won’t stay on store shelves for very long.
Friday morning, Coach put a simple image of a red Mickey Mouse-shaped leather handbag on their Facebook page, and it instantly caused a huge uproar. The line from Disney X Coach is set to launch on June 17, and people are already wanting them in their hands.
According to Vogue, Coach executive creative director Stuart Vevers is a self-proclaimed Disney fanatic. He doesn’t spend his time on exotic beaches or heading out to luxury resorts in Europe. No, Vevers frequents Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris, and he’s not afraid to admit that.
It’s not surprising that Coach and Disney are working together for this limited-edition Mickey Mouse line that features the famous mouse in some interesting situations. Sometimes, it’s just his smiling face staring back at you. Other times, he’s falling through or stuck in the leather and just can’t seem to free himself.

For those that don’t want to wait for the line, it is being released today exclusively at the Coach store in Soho, New York, and also at Colette, in Paris. It will be on June 17 that the line will be available in Coach stores around the world and also on coach.com.
Vevers is a fan of all those in the Disney animated line, but as of now, Coach has only worked on a Mickey Mouse line.
“We only did Mickey, the icon – it’s America’s leather house with America’s mouse!”
Coach fans will be thrilled to see a number of familiar shapes from Bonnie Cashin, the famous American designer. There is the Dinky, a zip-top bag, the Skinny tote, the classic Saddle bag, and others that are now enhanced with the one and only Mickey Mouse.
Now, just because it is Coach doesn’t mean that the Disney line is going to be limited to clothing and bags. No, there will also be a number of other items including:
- Leather display cases with rare Mickey Mouse comic books
- A line of free-standing Mickey Mouse figures in black leather and in different sizes

In the past, and present, Disney has partnered with other iconic designers such as Dooney & Bourke and Vera Bradley, but many have been impatiently awaiting a collaboration with Coach. The massive global company is no stranger to bringing the people what they want and for a long time, fans have wanted something like Disney X Coach.
Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Executive Vice President Josh Silverman is extremely excited for what this brings to fans in the worlds of both fashion and travel.
“This collaboration brings together two iconic brands in fresh, yet timeless designs that celebrate the heritage and style of both Mickey and Coach. This incredible collection is sure to delight the fashion world and Disney fans alike.”
Little touches are what will make this line that much more special. On the sneakers, shoppers will find Coach’s signature hashtag redesigned into the shape of Mickey ears. A biker jacket has a Mickey ear silhouette marked with punk studs.
Disney X Coach is one of those lines that fashion fans have only dreamed of, and it’s finally becoming reality. Disney has partnered with many other famous fashion lines to bring forth products that shoppers love to splurge on. These limited-edition Mickey Mouse bags, sneakers, sportswear, jackets, and other items will cause a mad dash before they’re all gone.
