MAC Reveals Disney’s Cruella de Vil Makeup Collection
MAC Cosmetics is set to launch its new “Cruella” makeup collection inspired by the Disney villain and fashion icon Cruella de Vil from the Disney classic 101 Dalmatians on May 13, 2021. The collection arrives ahead of the upcoming live-action movie Cruella which is set for release on May 28, 2021.
Disney Cruella Collection by MAC
The collection features nine products that bring to life the Disney villain’s look, whose origin story about aspiring to become a fashion designer will be portrayed by Emma Stone in the upcoming movie which is set in ’70s London during the height of the punk rock era. The line-up combines punk reds with metallic colours, and everything comes packaged in tubes and palettes bearing Cruella’s instantly-recognisable black and white colour combo.
Terry Barber, the Director of Makeup Artistry at MAC, said: “With there being such a huge trend for recycling the more niche counterculture moments of previous decades, this collection feels like MAC returning to a celebration of the kind of DIY styling and brave transformation that originally made it such a maverick brand.”

These Disney Ceramic Teacups and Plates Are Traditional Kiyomizu Wares From Kyoto
07.June.2021 | FASHION
Asahido is now selling a collection of Disney-inspired ceramics made using a traditional Japanese pottery technique known as Kiyomizu which originated in Kyoto.
Winnie the Pooh Hundred Acre Wood Teacup
This collection of teacups features hand drawn designs of Winnie the Pooh and his friends relaxing in their home of the Hundred Acre Wood. They are dyed indigo using a traditional dyeing technique known as gosu which makes the colour run deep into the design. There are cups to pick from, one big and one small and both with different designs. More details here (in Japanese).
Mickey & Minnie Traditional Dyed Pattern Mugs
These smiley teacups are made using the same dyeing technique and feature Mickey and Minnie made from collages of traditional Japanese patterns that have long been used in Kyoto.
Disney Princess Plates
Seven Disney Princesses have been feauted in this hand-painted Kiyomizu ware plate collection, all of which are lined with gorgeous colours including gold. They make for beautiful decorations for any Disney fan’s room.
Mickey & Minnie Kiyomizu Dolls
“Rakuyaki” is the name of the hand-mouldered pottery technique used to crafts these Mickey and Minnie Mouse dolls, one which has been used since the Taisho Period. Compared to the other ceramics on this list, these dolls are baked at a lower temperature, giving the colours a softer look. Red and black are classic colour combinations used in this technique, so Mickey and Minnie were the perfect candidates. Only 100 of each will be sold.

The meal kit is made to capture the feeling that your friends and loved ones are always with you. In the kit, you’ll find a recipe card detailing how to make the food, a lunch mat with an illustration of Pooh and his friends on it, and a message card which you can mail to someone special.

Saori Kimura Produces Disney Volleyball T-Shirt
02.June.2021 | FASHION
Japanese former professional volleyball player Saori Kimura has teamed up with HER7 to release two special volleyball-themed t-shirts in collaboration with Mickey & Friends. The tees released on HER ONLINE STORE on May 26.
“I’ve loved Mickey since I was a kid,” explains Kimura, “and even now, after becoming an adult, I frequent the Disney Store, so it has been a great honour and made me really happy to produce this.”
She continues: “The theme is Mickey and volleyball, so I ummed and ahhed about various things. One thing I really wanted to express was the teamwork that goes into volleyball, so I was able to have an illustration of the Friends on there. The picture is taken to look like everyone getting together to snap a photo after a fun volleyball game.”
“Another thing I wanted was for Mickey Mouse to be playing volleyball. He’s someone loved by people around the world. He’s doing a blocking pose. (He looks happy, like he’s saying, ‘I did it!’).”
“Both types capture the fun you can have in volleyball, so I really like them!”
Both t-shirts feature an apple logo specially designed by Kimura.
The Mickey & Friends design comes in two colours – khaki and sand beige. They are available in six sizes: M, L, and XL for adults and 110, 130, and 150 for kids.
The Mickey design comes in two colours – charcoal and grey. They are available in seven sizes: S, M, L, and XL for adults and 110, 130, and 150 for kids.
