Fashion and film have always been distant cousins, with one influencing and dabbling in the other, and vice versa—think Breakfast at Tiffany's and Bonnie and Clyde—but this season, it's plainer than ever before. Donatella Versace says that her spring collection was heavily inspired by Tim Burton's soon-to-be-released Alice in Wonderland.

“I had seen stills from the new movie, which were enough to fire my imagination,” she told WWD. “I am a big Tim Burton fan, and as soon as I heard he was working on this story, it was really easy to see how to do a take on his own surreal vision. It was really fitting for the times, too. Why not have some fun with fantasy?”
