We love!
The first sign that Snow White and the Huntsman is a completely different movie to Mirror, Mirror is when we compare Snow Whites. In contrast to the dreamy innocence of Lily Collin’s delicate and feminine version in Mirror, Mirror, angst-ridden Kristen Stewart brings out a much grittier side to the role. In the trailer she appears vulnerable yet determined, a much different Snow White than we are accustomed to, but dare I say somewhat mirroring a certain Bella Swan. Not necessarily a bad thing, as this movie, described by some as something akin to Lord of The Rings, is clearly aiming its sights at the cult movie audience and what bigger cult movie franchise is there at the moment if not Twilight.
If a star studded cast is what you are after each of these movies has this in spades. Alongside our too very different Snow Whites, movie fans are also faced with choosing between the true Evil Queen of Charlize Theron or the lighthearted malevolence of Julia Roberts. And all this before we consider the men in these movies: Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman and Sam Claffin as Prince Charming. Snow White and the Huntsman has a certain added appeal in that regard. But Mirror, Mirror has an appearance from Sean Bean as the king! How do you choose?
So…which movie do we think comes out on top? That depends on what kind of movie fan you are. Are you a lover of fairy tale worlds and happy ever afters? Mirror, Mirror is the movie for you. If it’s an epic battle between good and evil that captures your attention? Snow White and the Huntsman. Either way, both of these movies look set to be big hits in 2012, why not see both!
Mirror Mirror – Official UK Trailer
Mirror Mirror is a spectacular reimagining of the classic fairy tale starring Oscar winner Julia Roberts as the Queen and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White. An evil queen steals control of a kingdom and an exiled princess enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright.
Snow White and the Huntsman – First Trailer
In the epic action-adventure Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar(r) winner Charlize Theron) out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the young woman threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth, Thor) dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) joins the cast as the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power. The breathtaking new vision of the legendary tale is from Joe Roth, the producer of Alice in Wonderland, producer Sam Mercer (The Sixth Sense) and acclaimed commercial director and state-of-the-art visualist Rupert Sanders.
We have a long love affair with Disney Couture Jewellery here at TruffleShuffle HQ and have seen many collections come (and often speedily) go over the years. Some pieces are so much adored that they have become part of a core collection and are certainly here to stay – we call these the Classics. Then we have all the exciting collaborations with of-the-moment fashion designers, the most recent being the premium Minnie Mawi Collection which not only we loved, but celebs were seen wearing the pieces left, right and centre! Finally, the latest Disney Couture launch, the Icon Collection, brought together all your favourite Disney fairytale characters on a range of intricately designed to the teeniest detail pieces.
These best sellers have earned their place in the Classics collection. With ever-lasting love from our loyal customers, the press and a wealth of celebrity fans, it would be sacrilege to lose these beautiful pieces and so we will endeavour to keep them on the site for as long as we can.
New to 2012, this is the first and largest instalment of the Icon Collection (with whispers of more capsule collections being launched throughout the year). The Disney Couture Icon Collection brings together all those magical moments from the most loved, classic fairytales and characters, combining them with beautiful, innovative, intricate design details in this premium, nostalgic range. With stars such as Snow White, Cinderella, Tinkerbell, Bambi and Sleeping Beauty all referenced, these pieces have been lovingly made to be treasured for a lifetime, a real happy ever after! Here is just a glimpse of the range, see more here.
Probably the most premium, luxury collection ever from Disney Couture, the collaboration with London based fashion accessories designer Mawi set the world by storm! Minnie Mawi offers a beautiful and chic collection in homage to the Disney pin-up herself – Minnie Mouse. Featuring Lanvin-esque ribbon necklaces, bold stud earrings and chunky gold and pearl bracelets, this collection is cute, yet extremely fashionable and en vogue. With celebrity fans such as Kelly Rowland, Jessie J and fashion blogger extraordinaire Bip Ling these collectable items should take pride of place in any Disney fan’s collection. We still have a few pieces left so why not have a look here before they go!
Shhh, don’t tell anyone…
With new collections added every couple of months we are always excited to see what is coming next and which pieces we would like to add to our special collections. We have heard VERY reliable rumours of more Icon pieces with twinkling snow globe themes and Cinderella carriages, and also a special Winnie The Pooh collection. Not a word though…

There were squeals of excitement and delight in the TruffleShuffle.com office this week when it was announced that Disney Couture has partnered up with London-based costume jewellery company, Mawi, to create a limited-time collection celebrating Minnie Mouse, affectionately called “Minnie Mawi” The collection will fuse Mawi’s recognizable aesthetic of contemporary style paired with traditional influences, with Disney Couture’s signature whimsical touches for uniquely special, collectible pieces.
Jewellery designer Mawi Keivom’s signature pieces hold a niche in the contemporary costume jewellery market, appealing to shoppers of all ages. Marrying together her love for trinkets of yesteryear and a bold contemporary vision, Mawi’s collections provide an ornamental meeting place for the past, present and the future. The partnership between Disney Couture and Mawi is quite natural given the many generations that Disney has endeared itself to. The collection pays homage to Minnie Mouse, much-loved since her 1928 debut.
Although we are not able to give you a preview of the collection just yet we have had a sneaky peak and trust us when we say you are going to love it – think glitz and glamour, pearls and ribbons! We especially love the Chanel-esque style range so it is with great anticipation we await our first delivery which is due in September and with prices starting from just £30 for a stunning piece of nostalgia we know these are sure to be snapped up quick!
