Alice dress

"I recently saw the new Alice in Wonderland movie and Alice’s blue dress brought to mind a dress in the collection created by Japanese designer Jun Takahashi for his Spring-Summer 2005 collection.

Takahashi’s dress may have been inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland but the source of his take on the story was not only the novel by Lewis Carroll but another earlier screen version; the very eerie, surreal film, Alice, made by Czech artist Jan Svankmajer in 1988. Apparently the opening narration says it’s a film made for children….perhaps? It’s a bit creepy but in a bizarre and compelling way. It’s not something I‘d sleep on."
