Stella McCartney is a famed fashion designer, who has teamed up with Disney to celebrate the release of 'Maleficent'. McCartney has created a collection of eight playful outfits for girls and boys, inspired by the magical characters from Disney's new film. Items include princess-like dresses through to dark edgy t-shirts.The British designer said,
“Having kids myself, I recognise the importance of a loving home for every child. SOS Children works to provide and support the children in need of one. 10% of every sale of the Maleficent by Stella McCartney kids capsule collection purchased in Stella McCartney stores and online will be donated to the programme.”
The source of inspiration for the clothes, 'Maleficent', is a film that explores the untold story of the iconic villain from the 1959 classic 'Sleeping Beauty'. It is a dramatic story of revenge and love, and will be in cinemas from the 30th May 2014.
The cruel lead character is played by Angelina Jolie - a long-time supporter of SOS Children's work. Jolie has previously said that,
"I like to visit and support the SOS Children’s Villages in the world because I have seen that the children are growing up in a safe and loving environment.”
