To celebrate the release of the upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, designer Christopher Kane has teamed up with Disney and Eco-Age to launch a limited-edition 33-piece capsule collection featuring a lineup of apparel and accessories.
“I’m a huge fan of Disney — I’m an animation snob, so Disney is the ultimate pinnacle of that,” says Kane. “And Beauty and the Beast is such a great story because it isn’t based on a princess, but on a real-life girl with real aspirations. She wasn’t interested in finding a prince; she was interested in finding herself, and that’s the most important part.”
It’s a point that also isn’t lost on Eco-Age founder Livia Firth. “Belle is a very strong character,” she says. “If you think about a ‘modern-day princess,’ she would probably be very passionate about sustainability and the clothes she wears.”
Recycled cotton makes up super-soft tees and sweatshirts, while organic silk, custom-designed lace and upcycled rubber are also featured in the statement-making pieces. “We have a huge responsibility even outside [working with] Eco-Age,” he explains. “It’s really all about working with the best suppliers and really having a hands-on relationship with people. We’re not a throwaway product sort of business. We’re a luxury brand, and I want things to last a long time. People invest in a piece of clothing that they expect to last, so that’s why we’re in the business of doing that.”
Crafted with sustainability in mind, the collection features a selection of crewnecks, T-shirts, dresses and outerwear pieces inspired by the film’s characters and aesthetics. In particular, the rose motif is present throughout the range, while teapots and tea cups find home on delicate accessories.
