Erm, heard of the Minions? If not then you MUST have been locked in a dark room in some kind of solitary confinement, ‘cause these little “Despicable Me” break-out stars are the biggest phenomenon at the moment! Every time I open my Facebook page there is a meme of one of them, although I still can never figure out if it’s Stuart, Kevin or Bob, glaring back at me!
You don’t even have to be a 5-year-old, a parent or a Facebook fundi to be stalked by the minute bright yellow, pill-shaped posse – they can be seen everywhere from McDonalds to Selfridges and they even have their own Pantone shade called – you guessed it – Minion Yellow!
The fashpack were not ones to ignore the huge phenomenon either, and big name designers such as Giles Decon and Rupert Sanderson have done collaborations with the minute characters, catapulting minionfever into the world of high fashion – and giving the little yellow army major style cred.
British Vogue starred them on their cover and Suzy Menkes interviews some famous designers on how the Minions have influenced their careers (watch here!)
Now, the clever creative peeps at one of the best loved online fashion stores, Stylight.com, have had a little fun and turned some of the biggest names in fashion into miniature yellow icons with a Minion makeover – yup, they’ve been Minionised into Minionistas (trying saying that really fast over and over!)
So, how well do you know your Minionistas? Take the test!
P.S Answers are aaaaaall the way down – but no cheating now!
