Other Criteria and Marc Jacobs International have released a limited edition t-shirt produced in collaboration between Marc Jacobs and artist Damien Hirst.
The limited edition t-shirt features Hirst's take on Mickey Mouse and is available in both black and white for adults and children. The shirt is now available exclusively at Marc Jacobs stores in the U.S., the U.K., the E.U. and in Other Criteria stores in New York, London and Ilfracombe, England. The shirts can also be found on both company’s websites.
All proceeds will be donated to the U.K. charity Kids Company, which provides support to inner-city children. At a February auction in London, the original artwork on which the t-shirt is based sold for $1.5 million, also to benefit Kids Company.
"Mickey Mouse represents the happiness and the joy of being a kid," says Hirst. "I have reduced his shape down to the basic elements of a few simple spots and I hope people love it because it is still instantly recognizable–Mickey is such a universal and powerful icon."
