Well the first pictures aren’t very inspiring at all and we expected much more from the talented designer, Sue Wong. The line will hit stores in February, just before the release of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.”
Prices will range from $329 to $609, which seems pretty hefty for a Disney collection. So much for teenage girls being able to afford these lovely pieces. So I suppose they are aimed at adults? Interesting choice!
“I have long been mesmerized by the fantastical tales of Alice and her surrealistic adventures in Wonderland and am thrilled to be collaborating with Disney on this project,” explains designer Sue Wong. “This classic story, along with Tim Burton’s inspired interpretation, lends itself especially well to my design aesthetic, which is whimsical and fun, while adding yet another element of creativity and expression to my artistic process. It is an honor to help bring this marvelous tale to life.”
“Disney has been influencing fashion trends for several years thanks in part to the universal appeal of our characters and to the inspiration from such creative works of art as Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland,” said Robert Oberschelp, director, Disney Lifestyle Collections for Disney Consumer Products. “Our collaborations with top designers like Sue Wong have also enabled us to keep our lifestyle collections fresh and vibrant serving up an aspirational effect with consumers and Disney fans of all ages.”
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.
