UPDATE: Eeek! Just when we thought we couldn't be more excited for Angelina Jolie's new movie Maleficent, things have got a zillion times better. Stella McCartney's launched a collection of children's clothes inspired by the movie - and it's adorable.
The range is available to buy from Stella's online store today and includes a whole host of fairytale themed pieces from girly princess dresses to spooky T-shirts and from fancy dress headwear to uber-creepy footwear. Plus it's all modelled by adorable little kids.
Stella McCartney has teamed up with Angelina and Disney to create a line of kids clothes inspired by the dark 'Sleeping Beauty' rejig. The designer has created eight styles - from princess dresses and sandals to edgy T-shirts and sneakers - for both boys and girls aged four to 14.
'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,' said McCartney. 'When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.'
Angelina stars as the wicked but misunderstood witch Maleficent in the movie, which reveals the events that hardened her heart (sob!).
It's a lot eerier than the original sugary-sweet fairytale and Stella says that's why she found the film inspiring. 'There is a bit of a darkness to Maleficent which can be really scary at times but at the same time visually brilliant,' she said.
It's not the first time she's worked with Disney, she also designed a collection of jewellery featuring playing card designs to sit alongside Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland in 2010.
The Maleficent collection wis available online and in Stella McCartney, Disney and selected kids stores worldwide NOW before the movie's release on May 30. The pieces will range in price from £45 to £110 with ten percent of the sales made in Stella McCartney stores and online benefiting charity SOS Children’s Villages.
