If, like us, you're still reeling from the devastating news of Beauty and the Beast not showing in Malaysian cinemas, maybe some shopping news might cheer you up. British designer Christopher Kane has worked with Disney and sustainability consultancy Eco-Age to create a 33-piece capsule collection inspired by the beloved film.

"I'm a huge fan of Disney – I'm an animation snob, so Disney is the ultimate pinnacle of that," said 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."

Eco-Age founder, Livia Firth also said that a 'modern-day princess', "would probably be very passionate about sustainability and the clothes she wears."

And don't we know one!

Christopher modernises touches from the Disney film, incorporating the famous red rose and the colour blue (like Belle's dress). So far, we've seen a few looks from the capsule collection and the cool blue coat (pictured above) and rose overlay top are already our favourites. If you can bring yourself to stop crying over your keyboard, you can shop the collection online from 16 March.
