When I look back and make a list of movies or series I like, the most ones have a twist of style.
For example ‘The talented Mr Ripley’. Every shot is a painting. The clothes, the styling, the setting, the architecture, the beaches. Ann Roth and Gary Jones were the costume designers, who were nominated for an Oscar for their work. So much of the story telling lies in the clothes. Tom Ripley, brilliantly played by Matt Damon, wears simple, plain attire, which shows his working class background.
Then Jude Law. Knitted polo shirts, white linen trousers, linen blazers, colourful printed shorts and espadrilles, the perfect summer wardrobe, but one of the finest quality.
If you love fashion and haven’t seen this movie, please do. This movie has inspired me and a lot of designers.
