Rewind to 2006. Marc Jacobs comes out to take his bow at his spring 2007 collection in a Mickey Mouse tee and green cargo pants, a look so immortalized in our minds for two reasons: One, Marc’s appearance in a fitted tee that showed off his slimmer physique was phase one of his transition into the tan and buff Marc we see today. And two, all the best scenes of the Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton documentary feature Marc in this outfit screaming for his trusty assistant: “Joseph? Joseph? Where is Joseph?!” As loyal MJ devotees, we consider the Mickey tee a pivotal moment in Marc’s personal style evolution.
Now it has a second life as a crop top shown with MJ’s Spring 2013 collection. So which Mickey top do you prefer: The original tee or the reworked crop top?
