Christopher Raeburn, a renowned British fashion designer who's known for his utilitarian designs, collaboratively released a line of Disney bags alongside the mass media company.

Taking the characters of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Christopher Raeburn transforms them to be void of their usual vibrant colors. He does this by constructing their forms out of a single-toned material -- while Mickey is available in black leather, Minnie is taken over by denim in a dark wash. Each is presented in a gray octagon box, making the products great for gifting.

The designer explained his enthusiasm of the project by saying "To work with the Walt Disney Company is not only a huge honor, it’s thrilling to create something that really represents exactly what we’re about as a brand." Although the Disney bags utilize the traditional structure of the friendly cartoons, the faceless design gives the figures a bit of a creepy appearance -- especially considering that the eyes are changed to be two simple "X" shapes.
