    I kind of agree dior.
    They are all nice but didn't really seem to have much thought involved.
    Surprisingly I like the MMM piece.

    I really disliked Charles back handed comment about Disney's Alice. I thought that was a little unnecessary. They wouldn't have been able to animate some elaborate asymmetrical gown for the film. The reason why that Alice is so symbolic is its simplicity and everyone always looks back at the yellow, white, black and blue color scheme. I just found that comment to be so pretentious.

    that's obviously not the point he was making. just that the perception and image of alice is always the one from the disney film....never the image conjured from the book.

    i don't understand how anybody can think this is boring or has no thought. i mean one would hardly expect demeulemeester or ackermann to escape their aesthetics and create something super-flamboyant and colourful. otherwise,it kind of defeats the purpose of having these designers interpret the story into their worlds.

    oh yes...the shadow silhouettes ann played with kind of reminds me of the art direction ruben toledo did for the MoMu Antwerp/V&A exhibition spectres....and that exhibition too was inspired by alice in wonderland.

    "That boring Disney version"
    Yeah, I think that was the point.
    The reason why it is used all the time because the character designers at Disney were masters. They redefined every classic character and those images will be carried on forever because of their simplicity and humility. That is fine if he prefers Tenniel's but there was no need to insult the Disney version.

    & I wouldn't want them to leave their aesthetic and make some kind of Wonderland costume. Haider and Ann are two of my favorite designers but I don't worship everything their name is attached to. I just find these pieces uninspiring. No need to be condescending when someone doesn't share the same opinion.

    well it's his opinion too. so what? a lot of people find various mainstream versions of certain stories or symbols boring. etched so much that sometimes we forget to appreciate the original. i find it boring too,so that makes me 'pretentious' as well?

    and you know at the same token,there's no need for you to get so defensive when a person disagrees when one makes a narrow statement like "it has no thought".

    So it's my opinion his comment was unnecessary. So what?

    Not liking something doesn't make anyone pretentious, I said the comment itself was pretentious and the statement that the Tenniel illustration as being asymmetric which in all actuality is the same dress as the Disney version.

    & I am of course going to get defensive when someone makes the comment assuming I don't know their work and would rather them make something "super-flamboyant" and "colourful" & "that's obviously not the point he was making" insinuating I can't read.
