Designers in Wonderland


Paris department store Printemps commissioned designers to jump down the rabbit hole to create one-of-a-kind dresses fashioned for the fantastical Alice in Wonderland.  Featured amongst over-scale rabbits, books, teacups and more, and dressed by the likes of Maison Martin Margiela, Haider Ackermann, Christopher Kane, Bernhard Wilhelm, Alexander McQueen, Manish Arora, Ann Demeulemeester, Charles Anastase and Chloé, with one incredible pair of heels by Nicolas Kirkwood, Alice is as fetching as ever in her custom frocks.  A special in-store “tea room” hosted by Paris’ preeminent maison du macaron, La Durée, invites shoppers to sit down for a petite tea party, while in-store displays reflect the fantastical, seductive world of Lewis Carroll. Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland hits U.S. theaters March 5th and April 7th in France.
