EXCLUSIVE: Avril Lavigne Takes Her Abbey Dawn Line to 'Wonderland'

Upon learning that director Tim Burton was remaking Alice in Wonderland, Avril Lavigne was so inspired she created a special collection of her Abbey Dawn juniors line based off the new movie. To start, the singer headed to the Disney archives to get in the mood: “I went through binders of images from the film to get inspiration for the clothing,” says Lavigne. “We ended up using a lot of the floral prints, which were the flowers with the faces, and the verbiage [like] ‘Shrink me.’ It was kind of like anything and everything.” The star added screen-printed watches, Victorian ruffles, and florals on an array of shorts, tees, and hoodies. “My favorite is the white T-shirt with the rabbit stopwatch on it because it’s the iconic stopwatch,” she says. And this isn’t Lavigne’s only contribution to the flick: the singer also wrote the movie’s title song. “I was really inspired by the film and [so] I asked [Disney] ‘do you have a main song for the movie because I’d like to write it’. And they were like, ‘oh, we’ll talk to Tim,’ and he said ‘go ahead write it,’” recalls Avril. The song, which she will perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this month, will be a moody piano tune. Meanwhile, the limited-edition Abbey Dawn clothing collection will hit Kohl’s stores March 5, ranging in price from $24-$48.

I really love the t-shirt in the article! Depending on the rest of the line…I dunno. But I’m definitely going to be looking for that shirt! The movie looks great and I love all the fashion that is coming out that has been inspired by the movie.
