Hot Topic Gets Maleficent

Hot Topic is planning a limited edition collection of apparel inspired by Disney’s upcoming feature film Maleficent, in theaters on May 30.

The seven-piece collection is dark and mysterious, like the movie’s title character, with dresses, tops and a cape featuring faux leather accents, lace trim and skull hardware.

In addition to the fashion collection, Hot Topic stores will also offer a wide range of new and classic Maleficent-branded apparel and accessories including tees, dresses and jewelry.

The fashion collection will be available exclusively at Hot Topic stores in May, with pre-sale beginning on the Hot Topic website Tuesday.

“There is so much we instantly loved about Maleficent–the complex story behind this beloved villain, the breathtaking scenery and the striking costumes,” says Cindy Levitt, senior vice president, merchandising and marketing, Hot Topic. “We just knew we had to design a dark and edgy collection, because it’s exactly the kind of fashion our customers love.”
