Get ready, London, the Minions are coming! On the 10th of July, the character movie inspired by Despicable Me Minions, will hit theatres across the nation. However, in the lead up to the big debut, there’s something even more exciting happening in the world of fashion. The Minions have inspired some of our most celebrated designers in the country, who have created a Minions collection. Yes, these little yellow banana loving creatures now have some serious style street cred.
Giles Deacon, Tatty Devine, Piers Atkinson, Rupert Sanderson and many more have all lent their creative talents to producing a line of limited edition Minion inspired pieces to celebrate the launch of the new movie. Every single piece is currently on sale over at Selfridges and I went in last week for the launch to check out just how promising this whole Minion collection really is. Well, I can officially say I’m sold. Who knew a bunch of villain workers would end up dominating the fashion scene this season. From sweatshirts to denim dress, beanies to flip flops, the Minions are everywhere. I want it all and I want it now! That’s said in my most villainous voice.
Here’s a first look at the collection and some rather hilarious tasty treats served on the launch day:
And of course an ode to Minions...
