The Dreamers

Did you like to build tents with the blankets as a kid? I enjoyed that very much, but the ‘blanket houes‘ are no longer so innocent to me since I’ve seen the very famous Bertolucci film ‘The Dreamers‘. The plot is based on the book written by Gilbert Adair and contains a lot of controversial scenes, which resulted in the movie being criticised for the amount of nudity presented.

imageThe story of two siblings and their American friend was a little bit confusing, but for the purpose of this post I will leave it for you to judge and move on to more essential matter – clothes. Isabelle, portrayed by Eva Green (who, by the way, next to Cara Delevingne is my beauty icon), was a classic example of the late 60’s Parisienne.

The most distinctive element – red beret. And a cigarette maybe… Isa didn’t wear a lot of clothes, but when she did – those were simple dresses and skirts, combined with flat shoes and some particular French charm 🙂

Below you can see my effort to just slightly resemble the promiscuous Isabelle (but in her fully-dressed-moments!).

Moonrise Kingdom

I think the title of the post speaks for itself. After doing the Donna outfit I thought it would be thrilling to sometimes use movie characters as inspirations, so I decided to implement a new series of posts dedicated to my favourite silver screen protagonists. Enjoy my first pick! (Second, if we count Donna.)

First film that came to my mind was the sweet and weird Moonrise Kingdom, the latest Wes Anderson’s hit. Why? Well, if we look at the fashion side – there’s a lot to derive, because Suzy’s style is very flashy and charming, as she is very consistent with her choices. But I think, most of all, I love this movie so much because it shows a story of two kids, while actually saying a lot about the adults…

Suzy.

White below-the-knee socks, simple monochromatic dresses in trapezoid shapes, ‘polite’ collars and cuffs, flat elegant shoes. And binoculars – the secret superpower! What’s not to like?

If you would like to see more of those stunning costumes, watch Moonrise Kingdom! If you don’t care about those stunning costumes, go and watch Moonrise Kingdom! Now, if you want to see my loose interpretation of the above based on what I had in my closet, keep scrolling 🙂
