H&M is celebrating Disney’s 100th anniversary with the release of Disney100 x H&M, a collection by artist Trevor Andrew. The streetwear-inspired pieces and limited-edition skateboards feature Disney’s legendary characters radically reimagined.
A former world-renowned professional snowboarder-turned musician, filmmaker, NFT creator and multi-disciplinary artist, Andrew is known as the man behind the street art tag, GucciGhost. A life-long admirer of Disney, Andrew now joins forces with H&M on the release of the Disney100 x H&M collection.
“I am honored to reimagine Disney’s iconic characters and bring them into a space where they are experienced and worn. This is about uniting art, fashion and just all of us,” he says.
“I’m really excited to release our first 3-way collaboration. Diving into the Disney archives together with (Andrew) has resulted in something that is both iconic and unique,” says Ross Lydon, Head of Menswear Design at H&M.
Inspired by Andrew’s love of Disney and street art culture, the collection has a relaxed feel and boasts several Disney characters, all-over prints, and Andrew’s signature symbols, such as the ghost and the flying egg.
Sweatshirts, hoodies, T-shirts, shirts, and a long-sleeved polo shirt come in oversized and relaxed fits, ideal for the new season. On top of that, the drop offers must-have accessories like caps, socks, and boxer shorts. As for Andrew’s favourite collection pieces:
“I love the denim, because the logos make it very iconic. I also like the varsity jacket because it has several Disney characters on it. It’s fun to be able to put so many all in one piece,” he says.
Moreover, the collection features H&M’s first-ever limited-edition skateboards, also with unique artwork by Andrew. The skateboards have seven-layer maple plywood decks that measure 31” long and 8” wide. One style has a wordmark Disney logo hand painted by Andrew; the other has the iconic Disney characters.
