FANTASY MAN: “Oz The Great and Powerful,” a prequel to the original that will be released on March 8, is a fashion event, too.

Selfridges, for example, is planning a Yellow Brick Road and Emerald City-themed shop to fete the film and showcase merchandise designed around it. This includes a footwear by Nicholas Kirkwood, whose capsule collection was unveiled on Sunday. It features a dramatic scarlet and black bootie; a strappy black sandal; a silvery glitter stiletto with a 3D ruffle; and a zigzag men’s brogue.

“I’m not averse to a bit of fantasy at all,” said Kirkwood with a smile. “I had to create a shoe that would work well for each character, the good fairy and two wicked witches. It was great fun.”

The 3D film stars Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and James Franco while the Selfridges collection will be available during March and April.
