Angelina Jolie teams up with Stella McCartney

Angelina Jolie has created a range of Maleficent inspired clothing for children with Stella McCartney.

The 38-year-old actress has taken inspiration from her upcoming Disney movie Maleficent to produce a range of dress up outfits.

Stella has previously offered Disney-themed pieces, one of which was a jewellery line inspired by Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. She also featured characters from the children’s franchise in her Fall 09 advertisements.

She is thrilled to be working with Angelina on this unique venture.

“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,” she told WWD. “When the opportunity presented itself and I was invited by Angelina Jolie to visit the film set, I jumped at the chance.”

The range will feature eight styles, some of which will be princess dresses and T-shirts. There will also be footwear in the form of sandals and sneakers, appealing to boys and girls form the ages of four to 14.

Angelina’s movie, which focuses around the story of the classic 1959 Disney flick Sleeping Beauty, is released at the end of May. Her kids’ clothing collection will be available to buy globally in Stella McCartney stores, along with Disney shops. Pieces can be purchased from $75 up to $185.

Showing her charitable side, Stella will be giving ten per cent of sales made in her stores and on her website to the cause SOS Children’s Villages. This company provides homes for children in need.

The British designer loved how vivid she and Angelina were able to be when designing the little ensembles.

“There is a bit of a darkness to Maleficent which can be really scary at times but at the same time visually brilliant,” she smiled.
