The tales of the Unexpected | British Vogue | December 2008
'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', 'Matilda' and 'James and the Giant Peach' all have in common one thing; magic. And 'a little magic can take you a long way'. So believed Roald Dahl and created some of the best-loved children’s stories of the 20th century (can we shamelessly say we still read them today?).
Having that in mind, Vogue UK enlisted Tim Burton (who was the director of one adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and produced another for James and the Giant Peach), actors Helena Bonham Carter, Imelda Staunton and Jamie Bell, and musician Lightspeed Champion amongst others, to help bring to life, Dahl’s powerful vision through fashion (read full article and photoshoot here).
Sophie Drake shot by Tim Walker, wears our Chloe gloves and just like that in this British Vogue issue we find our golden ticket - is Willy Wonka ready for us?
