Uniqlo is launching a "Beauty and the Beast" collection, so get ready to channel your inner Emma Watson
Ever wanted to dress like a Disney princess, without the fanciness of formalwear? Well, we’ve got great news for you. Ready your wallets, fellow Disney lovers, because Uniqlo’s Beauty and the Beast collection is about to be your new favorite thing, and it’s almost here.
The Japan-based clothing retailer, which announced the release of the collection earlier this week, partnered with Disney ahead of the March 17th release of the live-action adaptation of the beloved animated movie. The new women’s line, launching Monday, features a casual take on Beauty and the Beast fashion, so rather than the iconic ball gown Emma Watson’s character dons when dancing with the Beast, the collection will be more similar to the “provincial life” threads she rocks in the first half of the film.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, the collection is part of Uniqlo’s “Magic for All” project, a joint collaboration among Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar that reflect’s Uniqlo’s “LifeWear” commitment to making “everyday life fuller and more comfortable.”
The collection appears to be available in Uniqlo’s Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore markets already, and we can’t wait to get our hands on these shirts.
Graphic tees not your cup of tea? The collection also has several gorgeous, flow-y, more subtly Belle-inspired tunics and long shirts.
The collection includes of 17 items for women and eight for girls, and it will be available at three Manhattan Uniqlo locations — Fifth Avenue, 34th Street, and SoHo – and at Chicago’s Michigan Avenue location. Approximate prices range from $9.90 to $29.20, so this collection isn’t just super cute – it’s also super affordable.
The brand describes its newest collection as embodying “a modern, relaxed bohemian style and casual items with a light, feminine silhouette.” Boho-chic and Disney-inspired? We’ve just found the cornerstone of our new springtime wardrobe.
