I had no idea that Alice in Wonderland was going to be such a phenomenon. Over the last week, I’ve seen so many AiW inspired articles, photo shoots, jewelry lines, merchandise and blog posts. Here are some of my favorites:
Sue Wong for Walt Disney Signature will feature pieces influenced by key story characters and locations, including Alice, the Red Queen, the White Queen, the White Rabbit and the talking flower garden. The Alice In Wonderland-inspired collection will showcase unique details inspired by the film, such as Victorian antique lace and vibrant details, while offering Sue Wong’s signature style: romance, femininity and exquisite hand-craftsmanship. Ranging from $329 to $609, the Sue Wong for Walt Disney Signature collection will be available in fine department stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom’s, Lord and Taylor and Macy’s, as well as on www.SueWong.com.

Swarovski is launching an all new collection of jewelry pieces that will take consumers inside the world of “Underland” to commune with the unexpectedly mad and caring characters. Capturing the spirit of each character in the film, the line features a host of vintage and gothic details inspired by the outlandish personalities found down the rabbit hole, and demonstrates the attention to detail in products that are the result of the long collaboration between Disney and Swarovski. The line features 17 pieces including pendants, necklaces, rings and earrings inspired by the Red Queen, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit as well as by the film’s beautiful settings including the talking flower garden and by other Alice icons such as teapots, cupcakes and keys. Ranging from $80 – $350, the line will be available at select department stores, at Swarovski retail stores and online at www.Swarovski.com, with select pieces at www.DisneyStore.com.

Urban Decay has designed a limited-edition Alice In Wonderland-inspired Book of Shadows. The book of 16 gorgeous eye shadow shades was inspired by Alice’s whimsical and colorful adventure – a “curiouser and curiouser” hike through twisted vines and skyscraping toadstools. The palette opens to a playful pop-up scene of Alice and her journey through the mushroom forest. The Alice Book of Shadows offers 16 best-selling eye shadows, as well as two travel sizes of 24/7 Eye Pencils and one Eyeshadow Primer Potion. DCP and Urban Decay worked together to develop names for the eye shadows reflective of the many topsy-turvy people and things in Underland: Underland, Alice, Oraculum, Queen, Chessur, White Rabbit, Wonderland, Curiouser, Muchness, Mushroom, Midnight Tea Party, Vorpal, Absolem, Drink Me, Eat Me, Mad Hatter, Jabberwocky. It’s available for $52 at Sephora, ULTA and Macy’s or online at sephora.com, ulta.com, macys.com, and urbandecay.com.
