Looking Glass Cropped Bamboo Kimono Cardigan

Sold out

Step through the looking glass with our loving tribute to Alice in Wonderland, a whimsical celebration of storytelling, imagination, and of course — wonder. It may come as no surprise to our stargazer community that the Alice books are a huge source of inspiration for us here at Market of Stars!

This beautiful, one-of-a-kind print features rare antique flower and foliage photographs, and a captivating portrait of Alice Liddell (the girl who inspired Lewis Carroll to write Alice in Wonderland), taken when Liddell grew up. The portrait was done in 1872 by influential photographer Julia Margaret Cameron, who photographed Liddell many times during her life. We chose this grown-up image of Liddell — rather than a younger one— since we are firm believers that though we all get older, we can always return to Wonderland no matter our age ;)

The moon in our design comes from a historic 1800’s photo taken by the Harvard Observatory, and the star trim (including the trim on Alice’s collar) comes from a fragment of wallpaper from the same era.

100% bamboo/wood viscose. Machine wash gentle or handwash and hang to dry. Iron to finish if needed.

Kimono measurements: length 58cm, width (across back, underarm to underarm) 74cm. Model is 5’9” for reference.

“The more I wonder, the more I love.”

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

- Lewis Carroll

“Follow your inner moonlight, and don’t hide the madness.”
