The collection, which hits stores and online March 16, brings to life the classic story with pieces in shades of gold and fairy blue, taken from the Beast’s castle interiors, and of course, the bold red of the enchanted rose. A central element in the film, the rose was a key inspiration for the collection and was developed into a photographic organza appliqué on tulle, reappearing on an all-over lace dress, in beautiful embroidery, and printed onto T-shirts, as well as the brand’s signature lenticular clutch bag.
"As a designer, I've always used flowers, and science and nature have always been a huge influence, but I think we went to a very dark place with the rose [in this collection], and obviously it's one of the biggest icons, it's symbolic of the love between Belle and the Beast," he says. "But it's not over-the-top, it's not too princess-y, which I think everyone was expecting. The fact is, Belle wasn't a princess, she's a normal woman with huge aspirations, which I always thought was so attractive about the film."
