Like with any recent movie release, we’re starting to see merchandise for the new Maleficent movie being released. While some of it is really fun, some of it misses the mark completely.
Probably the most exciting thing I saw was on Hot Topic’s Instagram account. While they typically carry items that are more on the casual side, they recently posted pictures of a limited upcoming collection inspired by the film.
I’m hoping this means we’ll be seeing more fashionable pieces like these in the future from Hot Topic.
Along with the collection, they’ve also released some great jewelry pieces.
Speaking of jewelry, Crow’s Nest is also releasing a collection of beautiful pieces inspired by the dark fairy. However, the one defining difference is the price. With the low end starting at around $5,000 up to a whopping $20,000, I’m not exactly sure who their intended audience is. It’s definitely not for your typical movie goer.
In keeping with the high end clientele, Faliero Sarti, a luxury scarf designer, is releasing two cashmere scarves with Maleficent’s likeness on them. Each scarf will retail for $438.
Probably the most disappointing Maleficent collection I’ve seen so far is the make-up collection from MAC Cosmetics. Devoid of any of the typical colors that are often associated with the iconic character, the collection just looks like your standard make-up collection. The only indicator that it is related to the film is the logo on all the packaging. When comparing this collection to past collections MAC has released, it leaves something to be desired.
I wish most films got this kind of attention when it came to merchandising. Can you imagine an Avengers fashion collection for the next film?
