MANILA – The Villain Kids are back! Just two years after the characters of “Disney Descendants” burst into TV screens, they make their much-anticipated return in “Descendants 2” this August 20 at 10am on Disney Channel. The film brings back all of its original characters, plus all-new songs, a new villain and of course, its edgy fashion style. Since the original film premiered, the “Descendants look” has inspired a following among kids and teens not just in the Philippines, but around the world.
Taking its cues from the film’s signature “wicked” look, Disney Channel has collaborated with selected students of the Fashion Institute of the Philippines to produce a special collection of street wear and formal attire to mark the sequel’s premiere. Chosen for their expressed admiration for the first film, the four talented student designers have provided their own unique take on the cutting edge styles of the Villain Kids: Mal, Evie, Jay, Carlos and Ursula’s daughter, Uma.
– Brad Shilver chose to highlight Mal’s strong, empowering personality through the use of structured, ruffled pieces accented by leather and bustier details
· Einer Nicdao showcases Evie’s flirty yet confident style through a blend of blues and blacks in his design
· Dylan Funa Gallaza, who was inspired by Jay’s quick witted, determined and charming personality, channels this through his design in standout details such as structured cuts and a unique urban athlete style
· Jay Tillo takes inspiration for Uma’s ensemble from her affinity with the sea, featuring an ocean washed look accentuated by sea shells and other nautical pieces
The bespoke collection made its debut at Disney Channel’s Isle of the Lost Party, an advanced screening event of Descendants 2 last August 5 in One Canvas, Makati.
The highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants 2” continues the adventures of the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains as they settle into their new lives in the idyllic kingdom of Auradon. When the pressure to fit in becomes too overwhelming for Mal, she returns to the Isle of the Lost which is now dominated by her archenemy, Uma, and her Pirate Gang, who plan to unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle. The contemporary, music-driven sequel, which has already broken ratings records in the US, premieres Sunday, August 20, 10am on Disney Channel. Fans in the Philippines can also enjoy “Descendants 2” on the Disney Channel App, available for download on the Google Play Store and App Store.
