Why should the grown ups get all the high fashion fun?
Stella McCartney is no stranger to childrenswear, as she already has a successful kids line of her own. This time around however, she’s putting a whimsical Disney twist on the line and teaming up with Angelina Jolie to do it.
It all started when the Maleficent star invited her famous designer friend onto the set of the Sleeping Beauty remake, where Jolie stars alongside Elle Fanning and her own daughter (who I’m sure must have a closet full of Stella kids clothes) Cue inspiration.
McCartney tells WWD:
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Disney growing up, as was my mother, and I grew up watching all the films like most kids did. When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.”
Now, the Disney twist may be new for her children’s line, but for McCartney herself, Disney collaborations are nothing new.
The London based designer and daughter of legendary Beatle, Paul, has featured characters from Bambi in her Fall ’09 campaign and later partnered with Disney again for a Jewelry line inspired by Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Now, this capsule collection of 8 looks for boys and girls 4-14 boasts princess-like dresses, graphic tees, and what looks like dragon-winged sneakers that’ll give Jeremy Scott’s Adidas collab a run for its money.
The looks will be available at Stella McCartney stores as well as a select Disney stores at the end of April through May. Giving shoppers a full month to get their hands on the pieces–ranging in price from $75 – $185– before the film’s release date.
Will I be able to squeeze into a pair of owdesigner dragon-winged kicks by then? We shall see!
