British luxury sleepwear-inspired brand Olivia von Halle has collaborated with Disney to create a dreamy capsule inspired by the forthcoming Maleficent: The Mistress Of Evil movie. The 15 piece capsule is the first movie-inspired collection to be developed by Olivia von Halle and it is simply magical. Drawing upon the themes of light and dark, von Halle’s capsule takes a whimsical, sophisticated approach to its fairytale inspiration, setting forth a luxurious collection comprised of glamourous, vintage-inspired sleepwear and RTW pieces.

Commenting on the capsule, Olivia von Halle said, “Growing up with Disney, I found from an early age that the characters I was drawn to the most were the villains, the rebels, the rule-breakers. They were dangerous, interesting, had depth to their characters - and were so glamorous and well dressed! Women are complex and powerful and I believe that we all have a Maleficent and an Aurora within us, and I wanted to create a collection that would enable women to explore and embrace these contrasting sides of their personalities.”

“It was a dream come true to meet with Angelina Jolie,” continues von Halle. “She is an incredibly inspiring woman who has such vision and knows exactly what she wants. I spent some time with Angelina on set and saw the costumes which are absolutely exquisite; so beautifully made and with a level of detail that is quite staggering. We discussed the complexities of Maleficent and Aurora’s characters which really helped us to create a collection that explores and celebrates these two powerful heroines, and what they would wear if they were women in 2019.”
