The collection will be unveiled in July during the couture shows in Paris, at 21 Place Vendôme – the location of Schiaparelli’s original workshop. Each of the unique pieces will be reinterpretations of the late designer’s most famous creations.

“In this persona incarnating a true aristocrat, one finds a spirit where mathematics and literature as well as poetry coexist: Elsa is a sacred sphinx who never ceases to interrogate us while offering us new enigmas as answers,” said Lacroix. “Art, theatre and cinema – my wish is to reposition Elsa at the centre of her maison and on the stage from which she once seduced the world.”

As part of the Disney collaboration, the designers will be creating one-off garments inspired by her signature bows and polka dots, during London fashion week in a collection called the Minnie Mouse Must Haves.

The collection will be auctioned on eBay for charity Fashion Arts Foundation, which aims to promote and nurture relationships between the fashion, film, music and art worlds.

“Minnie Mouse and her unique style continue to inspire fans across the world,” said The Walt Disney Company fashion and home vice president Marc Low. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with such visionaries to create these one-off designs. Surpassing trends, Minnie Mouse’s iconic silhouette, signature bows and polka dots always remain in style, which is why she is as relevant today as the day she first appeared on the fashion scene. London Fashion Week is the perfect stage for Disney, one of the world’s largest apparel brands, to put a spotlight on Minnie Mouse.”
