From Celebratory Cartoon Apparel to Cult Anime Sneaker Collections

 - Sep 25, 2018
From villainous Disney fashion to Hello Kitty streetwear collections, there are plenty of recent examples of cult clothing and sneaker brands collaborating with iconic cartoon franchises to create unique limited edition offerings. Largely driven by nostalgia, these collaborations include such celebrated cartoons and anime brands as the Simpsons, Dragon Ball Z, Looney Toons and the Animaniacs.

The Minnie Mouse collection by Coach features a number of pieces that range from wallets and keychains to handbags and cross-body bags. The playful collaboration was launched to celebrate Minnie Mouse receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Separately, a recent collection created by FILA and Nintendo's Pokémon featured five pairs of the shoe brand's Court Deluxe Low-Top silhouette in five colorways, each boasting different references to the iconic card game.
