Fashion news

Disney is selling a Mickey Mouse Joy Division t shirt.

This may mean that the Mayan apocalypse really is round the corner. Mickey Mouse and Joy Division? Disney knows the origin of the band's name, right? They know the lead singer committed suicide? They have like, listened to Joy Division? And also, FWIW,  have they considered whether the waves really could form a face and ears?

Actually, I like the shirt. Except the model's ultra-pc 'pick any three races from five' look is a bit off-putting, as is his banana-bent face.

Via Pitchfork, who are frothing at the mouth.

I have to admit that I've not listened to Joy Division and don't know the origin of the band's name. I could google, but I'm too lazy.

You and Disney both, it seems!
