via clothes on film
"Costume design remains one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated filmmaking arts. Far in excess of merely ‘dressing’ an actor for their role, costume design is discourse. A film can be read via costume; sometimes overtly, sometimes subtextually. Not just conspicuous sci-fi or period, but contemporary stories set within a familiar world in familiar attire. On screen even the most rudimentary item of clothing can take on meaning."
you often hear stylists and designers talk about how they're inspired by a certain film, and how certain scenes or a character is the muse for the 'story' for a collection or an idea. another one of my inspirations is Jean Seberg in the film adaptation of Bonjour Tristesse. the pixie haircut, her fresh-faced gamine charm, the rolled-up loose buttondown shirts...so lovely and i never get tired of this look!
