Stella McCartney unveils Beano-inspired clothing collection

Fashion designer Stella McCartney has partnered with Beano Studios for her latest autumn 2017 collection.

In the clothing line, McCartney has depicted Beano Studios’ iconic comic strip series The Dandy onto dresses, jackets, denim jeans, t-shirts and jumpers.

“The humour and artistry of comic strip animation touches your heart and your memory bank,” said McCartney.

“In this collaboration, fun and fashion go hand in hand and we are able to incorporate sustainable, stylish, timeless pieces while celebrating the inner child in our spirit.”

The collection will be available in stores worldwide from May, with prices ranging from £170 to £1,260.

Emma Scott, CEO at Beano Studios, added: “We’re delighted to be working alongside Stella McCartney and her team to give iconic British comic characters, Korky, Dinah Mo and Cuddles & Dimples a fresh new context.

“Our mission at Beano Studios is to entertain all kids (even grown up ones) by bringing our infamous rebellious streak to life in a range of new ideas, from fashion to movies to apps. Thanks Stella – we love your take on our world.”
