Back in December, Coach launched a collaboration with Mickey Mouse and Keith Haring – offering a wide range of apparel and accessories. But if the collaboration wasn’t enough to convince you to own any of Haring’s interpretation of the Disney icon, this Swatch collaboration just might.
Swiss watch company Swatch has rolled out its latest range of the Disney Mickey Mouse x Keith Haring Collection ($149-$754) which spans three wristwatches and a Maxi wall clock in stores.
This collectable collection is a tribute to the artist who was best known for his revolutionary and provocative graffiti-esque pictograms, lines, and symbols and fascination with Mickey Mouse (it’s said that Haring had always wanted to work for Disney).
The Eclectic Mickey watch by Swatch is also rendered in an oversized Maxi wall clock ($745).
Inspired by Haring’s vibrant energy and aesthetic, this Swatch collection transforms Haring’s Mickey Mouse works into wearable art. Besides the dials, the cartoon character also lands on the details of some of the watches. For instance, the nose on the dial of the Mickey Blanc Sur Noir.
The collaboration actually marks the second release for Swatch with the artist – the first was in 1986 when he designed four watches including the Keith Haring Serpent GZ102 which is now considered a rarity in the market.
Ahead, we’ve listed out the funky timepieces which will add a little pop to your watch collection.
