As we wait with insane levels of excitement for the new Beauty and the Beast to hit theaters on the 17th, we have found something to keep us busy and out of trouble--looking at Beauty and the Beast merch. From the eclectic--and we do mean eclectic--range of brands jumping on the Beast bandwagon, it seems that the rest of the world is as in love with this story as we are. Below, a list of some of the major collaborations happening right now.

1. JUICY COUTURE
America's favorite track suit brand was last buzzed about for their Vetements pair-up. This time, they've gone Disney, with two Juicy Couture Black Label velour track jackets festooned with Beauty and the Beast symbols made out of Swarovski crystals. Fun fact: one of the styles features over 5,000 of said crystals.
Available online at JuicyCouture.com March 6th
Fancy a red-carpet clutch that pays homage to your favorite movie? Judith Leiber has you covered. In honor of the film, Leiber's updated her classic crystal-encrusted rose handbag in an homage to Belle. There's also a punny 'Belle of the Ball' clutch designed with 10,560 Swarovski crystals. Mind you, this is no mere whim--it takes over a week to hand-bead each bag.
Limited quantities will be available for special order exclusively at Neiman Marcus and neimanmarcus.com starting on March 6th
They had a hand in the previous two collabs we mentioned, so it's no surprise that Swarovski's also making their own robust offering of Belle-centric merch. There's an extensive collection of fun rose-motif jewelry from Atelier Swarovski, including a super-cute hair pin; and then of course there are limited edition pens which we are also eyeing for our desks.
