FANTASY MAN: “Oz The Great and Powerful,” a prequel to the original “Wizard of Oz” that will be released 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 footwear by Nicholas Kirkwood, whose capsule collection was unveiled Sunday. It features a dramatic scarlet and black bootie; a strappy black sandal; a silvery glitter stiletto with a 3-D ruffle, and a zigzag men’s brogue.

“I’m not averse to a bit of fantasy at all,” said Kirkwood. “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 3-D film stars Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz, Mila Kunis and James Franco, while the Selfridges collection will be available during March and April.
