Alice…oh Alice in Wonderland

Can't wait for Alice in Wonderland...

I can’t wait for Alice in Wonderland to hit the cinemas in March next year, directed by Tim Burton and where Johnny Depp finally threw of his Captain Jack Sparrow character, and adopted the likes of the Mad Hatter.

But I am not the only one who seems anxcious about the release of he movie based on Lewis Caroll’s fairytale. It even shakes up the fashion- and beautyworld…

According to the French Vogue, beautybrand Urban Decay and OPI nailpolish, will launch special collections related to the movie at Sephora. For Urban Decay this will be a palette decorated in the style of the movie, and OPI is launching four shades of nailpolish related to the main characters in the movie.

And it doesn’t stop there. Vogue UK reports that Parisian Warehouse ‘le Printemps’ also took on the Alice-fever, and asked great names in fashion to design an Alice-themed window installation. Not so surprising if you think of it, because the release of the movie coincides with Paris Fashion Week.

No less than Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Ann Demeulemeester and Martin Margiela have been asked to design a one-off dress for Alice to appear in the Printemps window. Alexander McQueen was probably already thinking ahead with the shoes in his latest collection, that wouldn’t be misplaced in the fantasy movie.

Swarovski also has added an Alice in Wonderland capsule collection, which we’ve seen in a preview. Characters like the White Rabbit and the Chesire Cat are part of the collection.

I just started my own Alice in Wonderland craze by buying an Alice-print t-shirt at Urban Outfitters last week….
