Claire's Alice in Wonderland popup

Frankly, movie tie-in collections leave me stone cold. I’m hardly going to be sporting a Harry Potter Hogwart’s school uniform, wearing Twilight make-up (yes, really) or chowing down on a Macdonald’s Kids Meal, so when my inbox started pinging away with Alice in Wonderland collaborations I could barely be bothered to open the emails

But I’m glad I did. Because most of the stuff on offer is *smacks head in shock* rather good. Of course, it helps that the Selfridges Wonder Room is hosting an Alice-themed event, so amongst the Alice pieces on offer are a bracelet from Stella McCartney, a bow clip from Cherry Chau,  jewellery from Swarovski and oooh lovely stuff from Tom Binns.

My love for Tom Binns is well-documented – I think I’ve shot his intelligent, beautiful, complex jewellery for every magazine I’ve worked on, but I couldn’t think how he would translate his signature  to a Disney Couture collection. Remarkably well, it appears. In particular in these two bracelets that don’t wholly subordinate his vision to the needs of Disney.

In addition to hosting the screening I went to on Saturday night, Alice Temperley launched the first collection for her new bridge line Alice by Alice Temperley with an Alice in Wonderland party at Selfridges during LFW.  Ducking in through the black rabbit hole entrance, we landed in a room with a chess board floor, bottles of POP Champagne with Drink Me Labels and punch served out of tea cups. I was late for a very important date, so I missed the mayhem that ensued when Courtney Love went down her own personal rabbit hole and took to the stage to, um, entertain the crowd.

And if all those designer names are giving you hives, don’t be late for the very well done Claire’s Alice’s® Pop Up Fashion Wonderland store (Image at top), on London’s Maddox Street, the contents of which I imagine must be like crack for infants.
(26th February – 5th March, 11am – 6pm. 18 Maddox Street, W1)

Yep, most movie-inspired accessories can be ghastly. But these Alice charm bracelets are fab! Colorful and kooky, Alice in Wonderland is such a great muse. Thanks for sharing!

Haven’t seen the film yet but looking forward to it. It’s amazing how many phases from the story are used in everyday English. There is nothing like an eccentric tea party.

I adored this movie, there is just something about it. I loved Mia’s dresses! I have to admit, I was in Costco yesterday and bought the DVD! I’d love a pair of her sweet little gloves. Have you seen them in your travels? I haven’t seen a pair remotely similar in CA or online.
