To celebrate the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese zodiac, Miu Miu presents a collection of T-shirts printed with big cats in animation. They range in spirit from bouncy and cute to heroic, and from ubiquitous to unexpected.
Created by Tiger Key in 1968, at the height of superhero fandom, Tiger Girl is a formidable crime-fighting blonde in a tiger print corset who battles villainy with a savage tiger as her sidekick.
Disney’s Tillie Tiger is an adorable creature, dating all the way back to 1936 when she first appeared on screen as the love interest of Elmer Elephant and then in comic books too alongside her four-legged beau.
Courtesy of Disney also, and again first seen in 1968, the irrepressible Tigger from the tales of Winnie the Pooh, needs little introduction – an anthropomorphic toy-come-to-life he is, in his own word, “wonderful”.
