Hooked: Tom Binns

We know what you’re thinking. Has it really come to endorsing movie merchandise? But Tim Burton’s remake of the Disney classic Alice In Wonderland isn’t your average holiday kiddie fare. And it’s already drawing its fair share of fashion heavyweights, such as Printemps enlisting Haider Ackermann, Alexander McQueen and Ann Demeulemeester (among others) to envision new costumes for a modern-day Alice.

But our favorite is the bauble collection from Tom Binns. The Mad Hatter of jewelry, who isn’t exactly known for minimalism, will produce a limited edition of pieces inspired by the film, like this broken teapot necklace in porcelain, which merges Binns’ punk sensibility with Lewis Carroll’s Edwardian whimsy. Plus, you won’t even notice if you break it. $1,000 – $15,000 at Tom Binns, 41 Perry Street, New York, 917-475-1412.
