This IKEA Collection By Beyonce’s Stylist Bea Åkerlund Was Inspired By ‘Alice In Wonderland’
It is perfectly appropriate to want to emulate Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter in nearly every way possible. The woman is, after all, so stylish and formidable she was able to announce her pregnancy with twins via an Instagram post so memorable it puts every single thing a Kardashian has published to shame, but beyond that, Beyoncé's been rocking stellar looks since she crawled through an uninhabited island with the other two members of Destiny's Child in the "Survivor" video. Now, you too can have a slice of Bey, thanks to a new IKEA homeware line designed by Beyonce's stylist.
The line, dubbed Omedelbar (which means "immediate" in Swedish) is designed by Bea Åkerlund, who, per London paper the Evening Standard, has fashioned famed looks for Beyoncé, as well as for Madonna, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. This particular line takes inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, with designs befitting a world through a looking glass like upside-down top hat vases, time piece-shaped wall clocks, crown-shaped gold bowls, and a pair of otherworldly black-and-white curtains.
But while you might expect decorating your home a la the number one pop star in the world might cost a chunk of change, the Omedelbar line is rather affordable, with goods starting as low as $2 and going up to about $250. Here are some of the top picks from the collection:
1. Cushion Cover, Lips
3. Hat Vase
4. Shoe Vase
This is actually my favorite item in the collection, in part because I adore flowers, but also because I am a fan of Victorian fashion. Here, we have a vase shaped like the Mad Hatter's leg (it is not Alice's leg, for in John Tenniel's illustrations, as well as in the Disney movie, Alice is wearing Mary Janes.). I love it.
