When I found out on Instagram that Cath Kidston was doing a collaboration collection with Disney’s Alice In Wonderland, I knew this was something I was not going to be late for! If you don’t get that reference, we really won’t be able to be friends.
I’ve loved Alice In Wonderland for as long as I can remember, I mean, how could you not want to follow the white rabbit and fall down the rabbit hole into Wonderland?! The enchantment, overall aestheticism and fairy tale elements of the whole concept has always been such a dream to me, so a big thank you to Mr Lewis Carroll.
As for Cath Kidston, ever since discovering the Brand through the Nokia Mobile collaboration which happened in 2006, I’ve continued to adore the whole style and look. Retro floral and animal patterns are simply timeless and a vintage lovers dream therefore, when 1950s Disney and Cath Kidston come together, it’s truly on a level like no other!
The collection launched early on Thursday May 24th at 7PM in selected stores and officially on Friday May 25th, which was when I ventured into my local Cath Kidston store. I was in complete awe of each individual item that had been so beautifully made and was truly beautiful, a collaborators dream! The first fifty customers who spent over £50 on Alice In Wonderland products were able to receive and exclusive limited edition tote bag – thankfully, I was number 48!
I decided to make a list of the items I wished to purchase from the collection beforehand, as I wanted to be prepared and try and be fairly controlled with my money, emphasis on fairly. Ultimately, I actually surprised myself and didn’t buy every single thing on my list, which is pretty impressive if you ask me! Considering this was such an iconic collection, the prices for each product were most definitely reasonable and I was fortunate enough to purchase most of the things I had hoped for. The only thing I just couldn’t justify was the stunning Alice and Friends Leather Lozenge Cross Body Bag as at £115, that was sadly way out of my price range.
However, as noted previously, I did purchase some beautiful items and will name each one;
Alice’s Meadow Boxed Gift Mug
Painting The Roses Tab Saddle Bag
Falling Alice Moving Iphone 6/6s/7/8 Case
Alice’s Meadow A5 Hardback Notebook
Alice’s Meadow Chunky Pen
Alice’s Words Shirt Dress (sold out online)
I can only dream of the next Cath Kidston x Disney collaboration and wait with excitement and a huge lack of impatience for the new announcement! Which reminds me, make sure you sign up to hear about it first! Thank you so much to Cath and Disney for making something so special for all the vintage lovers and Alice In Wonderland fans out there!
