SAN CLEMENTE, CA - Happily ever after begins when you slip on the new Beauty and the Beast collection from Stance, an anthology of socks inspired by the live-action adaptation of the animated classic, "Beauty and the Beast."
Inspired by Belle’s strength and sense of adventure, Stance brings her story to life with five eclectic sock styles fit for all fans. The collection draws inspiration from every aspect of the film, from the traditional pinafore dresses of Belle’s hometown, and brushed royal crests of the castle, to the classic Rococo architecture of France.
Silhouettes vary from the Stance Sheer Anklet, 200 Everyday, Tomboy Lite, and Classic Crew for a diverse capsule collection. Two standout styles include ‘The Rose,’ a sheer lurex Anklet with an enchanted knit rose bloom, and ‘Handsome Beast,’ a Tomboy Lite sock with black and gold print detailing and an emblem from the ballroom floor where Belle and Beast had their unforgettable dance. With a rich variety of colors and prints, intertwined with opulent gold foiling and a knit rose bloom motif, the collection exudes classic sophistication and modern appeal.
Stance's Disney Beauty and the Beast collection retails for $20 and will be available online on February 28, 2017, at stance.com, Stance's flagship location in Soho, Colette, and in select retailers worldwide.
