Disney Joins the "Virgil Abloh: Figures of Speech" Merch Bonanza

Merchandise is at the very core of Virgil Abloh: Figures of Speech, the late multihyphenate’s career-spanning retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum. So much so that the exhibit even includes a “Church and State” store, Virgil Abloh’s clever nod to the relationship between art and commerce. Now, Disney is the latest entity to join the Figures of Speech merch bonanza, following a special Off-White™ capsule that was released in September and the wide array of items that accompanied the exhibit’s opening.

Mickey Mouse is front and center on Disney’s Figures of Speech capsule, appearing across hoodies and T-shirts for adults and children alike. Though he’s present in a wide variety of colors he’s always striking the same pose: arms outstretched, teeth gritted in concentration, feet gingerly placed askew. All tees feature various text and spell-out graphics as well.

You can purchase the special Disney Virgil Abloh: Figures of Speech merchandise at the “Church and State” shop in the exhibition or online via the Brooklyn Museum’s webstore. Prices range from $30 USD for a youth T-shirt to $120 USD for an adult hoodie. Virgil Abloh: Figures of Speech runs until January 29, 2023.
