Start looking for Beauty and the Beast merchandise, and it’s like going down a never-ending rabbit hole. Of course, there’s pieces inspired by Disney’s 1991 Beauty and the Beast (Have you seen Primark’s Chip coin purse that sent everyone into a meltdown?! Too cute.) But, after spending hours scouring the web, here are the pieces inspired by the 2017 live action movie, that I’m most excited about.
Note: I link directly to the website that sells the following pieces, however none are affiliate links.
Taking inspiration from the 18th century, the majority of these pieces are grown up, allowing us to indulge in our love of Disney without looking like we’ve raided the kid’s costume box.
- Beauty and the Beast Limited Edition Fine China Tea Set
I’m loving that the Disney Store is tailoring some of their Limited Edition pieces for us Disney-loving adults. If you’re wanting an authentic Mrs. Potts tea party, this set is going to be a must. It comes with Mrs. Potts, Chip and three other teacups and saucers.
HSN teamed up with Disney to pull together some amazing collections with different designers. You can check out the HSN Beauty and the Beast page here to see the full collection which includes bedding, shoes, fashion, nail polish, etc, but here are my favourite designer pieces.
This has to be the best overall collection out there. There’s affordable pieces like her Photo Frame and Mrs. Potts Catch-All Tray. But she also has a Beauty and the Beast book clutch, Mrs. Potts bag and a Plumette crossbody purse that I’m crushing on. Not too expensive, playful and still elegant.
Taking a step up in the pricing department, Heidi Daus has some sparkling fashion jewellery pieces. While there’s necklaces and earrings in her collection, the crystal pins I feel have the most amount of use. Whether you’re wanting to create a necklace, attach it to a scarf, or update your purse, the pins will go the furthest. The pins can be bought in a collection or as individual pieces like Cogsworth here.
If I was to choose just one out of everything I’ve seen, the Patina Vie collection is my pick. Whether it’s the cake stand or the set of 3 trays, these pieces have the elegance of Beauty and the Beast, but the ability to be used for so much more.
Heading back over to the Disney store for this iPhone case. While it is plastic, it does mean there’s a little Beauty and the Beast magic to carry around with you wherever you go.
While they have some lovely female pieces, Hot Topic makes the most amazing men’s jackets when they pull together their special collections (as I learnt when I bought a jacket from their Fantastic Beasts collection). And their Beast Suit Jacket is ticking all the boxes. Golden embroidery, branded buttons, and the lining! How funny to get excited over the lining, but take one look at the mapping with vines and roses, and you’ll get the enthusiasm.
- Disney by MinkPink
While MinkPink does include styles inspired by the 1991 movie in their Beauty and the Beast capsule collection, I had to include their pieces because so often Australia misses out on movie merchandise. I’m personally loving the satin sleep shirt and shorts, but also the ‘Squad Goals’ nightie with Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumiere and Cogsworth.
As I’ve said, start going down this rabbit hole, and who knows where you’ll come out. Disney has teamed up with a good number of other companies, including (but definitely not limited to) New Balance (running shoes), L’Oreal (lipstick and nail polish), and Le Creuset (spotted on Williams-Sonoma).
