Disney x Gigi Burris

In celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 90th birthday, New York milliner Gigi Burris launches a capsule collection interpreting through headwear an American icon, Mickey. Burris debuts today a nine-piece collection of felt hats and hair accessories that celebrate Mickey’s timeless style and color palette.

Raised in Central Florida with Walt Disney World essentially in her backyard, Burris was transfixed by Mickey Mouse from a young age—his unmistakable ears shaping more than just an unforgettable character, but also the dreams of a young, creative spirit. As a renowned milliner, Burris possesses a rare talent for taking the old and making it new, using centuries-old techniques to handcraft one-of-a-kind pieces that are all locally made in New York City.

The first place that Burris draws inspiration from are the two simple black circles on top of Mickey’s head that have become as recognizable as the mouse himself. Burris plays off this silhouette in her Icon Cap, which comes in red, yellow and black. Now three dimensional, this innovative piece is a wearable sculpture. The Icon, is a limited edition drop with 30 hand-numbered pieces per color. “I wanted to create a forward-thinking take on the ears that looks as welcome at Walt Disney World as it would on the streets of New York,” Burris explains.

For a more classic silhouette, Burris creates a black and red fedora, drawing inspiration from the period of Mickey Mouse’s inception in 1928. For this piece, the ears appear as subtle, black circles that add interest to the crown of the hat. Mickey’s black and white beginnings are referenced in an elegant veiled headband that features hand-applied sequins and Swarovski crystals on ears formed from hand-tacked French veiling.

To emphasize Mickey’s natural charm, Burris individually places a pattern of Swarovski gunmetal pearls and red crystals onto a luxe, gunmetal headband in the shape of his ear silhouette. Another accessory pays homage to Mickey’s iconic design and recognizable ears. Here, it is plated in 14 karat gold—a simple and chic way to portray Mickey’s hairline. “As a hat maker, I was drawn to what shapes Mickey’s face—the dramatic widow’s peak that punctuates his every expression.”

While Mickey’s ears are his trademark, the mouse has never shied away from headwear. He has always selected just the right topper to complement his most memorable looks. Burris is particularly inspired by the captain’s hat Mickey wears in his debut film, Disney’s Steamboat Willie, as well as the square brimmed hat Mickey puts on as a conductor in Disney’s The Band Concert.

These references are alluded to in the form of a lambskin leather Greek Fisherman’s hat, featuring Mickey’s signature white buttons and a subtle nod to his hairline stitched in white thread on the top of the cap. A cheery, red, square-brimmed hat is a modern update to a classic baseball cap, complete with three Disney x Gigi Burris pins—Mickey tipping his boater hat, the classic icon of Mickey’s ears, and an “M” for Mickey. This moment harkens back to the days when Burris, like many others, would leave Walt Disney World with a plethora of Mickey Mouse souvenirs and memories of another special day spent with the beloved mouse.

Each piece in this collection embodies what Burris and people everywhere love about Mickey Mouse— his playful mischief, his joy, his style and, of course, his ability to make you smile.

Earlier this year Disney announced the launch of “Mickey the True Original”– a global campaign in celebration of Mickey’s heritage spanning over the last 90 years. Since his inception in 1928, Mickey Mouse has become a global pop culture icon, transcending languages and cultures – embodying a ‘true original’ spirit; Mickey Mouse was the first licensed character franchise and appeared in the first-ever synchronized sound cartoon, Disney’s Steamboat Willie.

Recognized the world over, Mickey continues to inspire artists, musicians and fashion designers from around the globe. The True Original campaign will bring together other original brands that are recognized as pioneers in their field, and Gigi Burris epitomizes this.

THE HUNDREDS × G-SHOCK

CASIO G-SHOCK PARTNERS WITH THE HUNDREDS ON NEW 35TH ANNIVERSARY COLLABORATION TIMEPIECE 

First Available Exclusively at ComplexCon, Custom Design Elements Nod to Both Brands’ Anniversaries

 

Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces their second collaboration model in partnership with international streetwear brand The Hundreds – available first exclusively at ComplexCon this weekend. In celebration of G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary, as well as The Hundred’s 15th anniversary, the men’s timepiece features an updated DW5600 case in a matte-black colorway. With The Hundreds’ signature red, yellow and black colorway dynamically positioned on the face, the new model also features their brand ethos of “Blood Sweat & Years” on the watch strap.

 

Following a previous collaboration between the two fashion entities in 2012, the DW5600HDR-1 model nods to G-SHOCK’s original timepiece with a classic square face and compellingly simple yet distinctive design, as well as The Hundreds’ two signature logos on the strap and on the case back.

 

“Since we aspire to have a timeless brand, in handpicking our collaborators we seek out partners with classic legacies,” said Bobby Hundreds, founder of The Hundreds. “Casio G-SHOCK is a heritage player, having maintained relevance through design and quality over generations. When The Hundreds works with G-SHOCK, we’re not just making a watch, we are bridging our histories: A timepiece that stands the test of time.”

 

The Hundreds, a streetwear brand founded in Los Angeles in 2003, was inspired by California’s punk, hip-hop, skateboarding and surfing culture. Its products are now sold worldwide and have expanded to include eyewear.

 

A video was created to showcase the new timepiece. Take a look: http://bit.ly/gshxhrd

 

The DW5600HDR-1 will first be showcased at ComplexCon, a one-of-a-kind street culture festival in LA that is bringing together the top brands across pop culture, music, art, food, style, sports, innovation, activism, and education. The festival is taking place on November 3 and 4 in Long Beach, California.

 

In addition to a black IP case back, the DW5600HDR-1 timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:

 

  • 200M water resistance and shock resistance
  • EL backlight
  • Flash alert
  • Multi-function alarm
  • Hourly time signal
  • Stopwatch and countdown timer
  • 48.9mm case

 

The DW5600HDR-1 will retail for $160 and will be available for purchase exclusively at the G-SHOCK booth at ComplexCon from November 3 – 4, with a global release date of November 9 at select fashion boutiques, Macy’s, and gshock.com.

ASTRALWERKS x NINJA

In a first for the music and gaming worlds, Astralwerks and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins have joined forces on a groundbreaking new project, Ninjawerks. Ninja, who is the world’s biggest gamer, announced the album earlier today at TwitchCon in San Jose, CA.

Many of today’s most acclaimed electronic artists have been tapped to soundtrack Ninja’s gaming world. Ninjawerks will be available in digital, CD and vinyl formats. Look for songs and other content to be launched in the weeks ahead, including a wide range of merchandise, Ninjawerks accessories and original artwork.

“I’m stoked about this project, first because I truly love the music, but also because I think this is another big step towards bridging the gap between music artists and gamers,” said Ninja. “Our worlds keep getting more and more connected, and this feels like the next step — hopefully this can become the soundtrack to gaming. It’s also amazing to partner with Astralwerks and Capitol Music Group, because they bring so much credibility to the album. I mean. Come on. Get your ears ready.”

Astralwerks General Manager Toby Andrews added, “Partnering with Ninja and taking our first step into the gaming world simultaneously as a label is an extremely exciting proposition, and we couldn’t be happier to be announcing Ninjawerks. Working with Ninja and his team at Loaded to curate and conceptualize the album and the coming campaign has been remarkable. Through the hard work and dedication of a lot of people, it’s great to see this project come to life and expand the possibilities of what we can offer artists.”

G-SHOCK x Gorillaz

Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces the launch of the first ever G-SHOCK x Gorillaz collaboration. With 2018 marking G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary and the release of an acclaimed new album from the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act, this collaboration comes at an exciting time for both parties.

The two internationally renowned entities have come together to offer reimaged designs to classic G-SHOCK styles, designed specifically with Gorillaz band members in mind. The DW5600 has been re-imagined for 2D, Murdoc Niccals and Noodle in three different colorways, each showcasing their personalities through additional character-specific detailing and individual packaging. G-SHOCK’s DW5600 case, “The Origin,” is a classic style, first launched in 1986. It is extremely durable, offering no limitations to its wearer. The DW5600 boasts universal usability and key features including shock resistance, 200-meter water resistance and an LCD scratch resistant watch face.

A fourth model is inspired by Gorillaz drummer, Russel Hobbs. Designed in the more robust GX56 case, “The King,” is solar powered, alongside standard G-SHOCK technology including shock resistance and mud resistance.

G-SHOCK’s 35th anniversary celebrates the brand as the first watch that stunned the world with a concept for toughness that defied conventional watchmaking logic. G-SHOCK has pushed the limits of watch design over the years, with continually improving technology, design concepts and breaking boundaries.

A global phenomenon embracing a truly collaborative philosophy, Gorillaz have topped charts around the world and toured the globe from San Diego to Syria, picking up hundreds of millions of streams and record sales along the way, achieving success in entirely ground-breaking ways.

The G-SHOCK x Gorillaz partnership brings together two world class, innovative and renowned entities to offer a classic style redefined once again. The full collection will be available at the G-SHOCK Soho Store and GSHOCK.comthis winter with Murdoc and 2D retailing for $120 beginning November 15 and Noodle and Russel following on December 15 for $120 and $170 respectively.

NEON COLORS × G-SHOCK

With fall in full swing, there is no doubt that bright, neon hues are the biggest fashion trend this season. While some may be intimidated from vibrant colors, Casio G-SHOCK’s range of men’s timepieces will be the perfect pop of color for any fall look. From eye-catching watches in bright yellow, to more subdued models with pops of neon, G-SHOCK’s latest offerings make the perfect statement accessories.
