I thought that I would put together a little edit of a few of my favourite fashion movies incase you are in need to a weekend watching.
I am love https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1226236/
This Italian movie starring Tilda Swinton is stunningly beautiful. The food, scenery and costume design is stunning. Tilda wears lots of Fendi and Jil Sander- the Italian style is opulent and chic. This movie is luxury fashion voyeurism at its best!
Dior and I https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3539664/
Still not over that Raf Simons has left Dior, I love this documentary not because of the beautiful fashion but because it captures the stress, fragility and creativity of the fashion industry. The scene were Raf cries on a rooftop captures so much of the high highs and daring that exists in the fashion industry. It also shows the immense craft and behind these scenes work that goes into a collection.
The Great Beauty https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2358891/
The great beauty is a bit of a weird film, I left it and had to think about it for a good few hours before I got the concept of the movie but it took me about 30 seconds to realise that this movie is a mens fashion icon. It showcases the soft Italian tailoring in linen, shirts that are ridiculously unbuttoned and all the pocket squares. The movie is a visual feast and that Yellow linen jacket is STUNNING!
Funny Face https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050419/
Audrey Hepburn is of course a fashion icon but this movie is so sweet and fun. It has one of the best clothing montages of all time. I love a good montage and the “Think Pink” sequence is one of my absolute favourites! Although Hepburn often worked with Givenchy, this films costume design is by Edith Head (Who Edna K in the Incredibles was modelled on). The 1957 film also includes Hepburn as a Beatnik, which from a fashion perspective is fascinating because it was a huge influence on 1960s fashion.
