Style Hunter: Get the fashion from Syfy's 'Alice'

I’m not a big science fiction fan, so it’s no surprise that I rarely watch the Syfy channel, but when the network aired an ingenious retelling of my favorite childhood story Alice in Wonderland, I had to tune in. The two-part series incorporates all sorts of futuristic and surrealistic updates, but as this behind the scenes video reveals, the look of the series reflects a definite ’60s vibe.

And as our Style Hunter inbox shows, plenty of you want a piece of Alice’s wardrobe for yourself—and I don’t blame you. From her plum velvet blazer to her simple blue sheath dress, it all screams vintage chic, which isn’t too surprising considering Moulin Rouge! costume designer Angus Strathie custom made most of the wardrobe, including the blazer, dress and even the Hatter’s hat. The only asked-about costume piece you can get you hands on, though, are Alice’s John Fluevog boots (fluevog.com; $300).

Bummer, I know! But if you’re still looking to get your tripped-out ’60s-era look, have no fear; Style Hunter has tracked down some similar looks.

For namesake character Alice, played by Canadian actress Caterina Scorsone, Strathie crafted a retro ensemble, starting with the unadorned blue dress. For a similar style, try The Limited’s structured sheath (thelimited.com; $80), Trina Turk’s “McKinley” dress (bloomingdales.com; $248) or J. Crew’s silk taffeta “Clemintine” dress (jcrew.com; $99) in a color reminiscent of Disney’s version of Alice’s tale. If you’re looking for the plum blazer (like me) try 57 T’s blazer (yoox.com; $165) or this Patrizia Pepe number (yoox.com; $215).

And for fans of the Hatter’s porkpie hat, you can score a similar look with Bailey’s “Charlie” straw hat (hats-plus.com; $49) or this Nice Collective linen porkpie (ronherman.com; $175).

    The Fluevog link is the wrong style, they are Fluevogs, but the style is called Sopranos Inge.

    As another said, the shoes are Sopranos Inge, and the color in the series is purple/plum, which they do not currently offer.
