A week at the movies

A week at the movies...
My week of covid isolation gave me time to discover some brilliant films and it was such a treat. I've recently started to really enjoy looking to films for design inspiration. Being immersed in such a creative world for two hours is one of my new found pleasures.
I absolutely loved the costume design and art direction in the films I've listed below. From New York in the 70s to Italy in recent times, I was so inspired by these films and I just had to include them in this weeks inspiration board.
One last film I haven't included visually but is just as inspiring is 14 Peaks. A story of incredible achievement and a great escape for anyone stuck at home for 10 days!

    OMG Annie Hall! Diane Keaton’s looks in that movie have been a style inspiration to me since the movie came out. Yeah, I’m old. Another great movie set in NYC that you should check out is “Crossing Delancey” with Amy Irving from 1988. Both of these characters gave me the chutzpah to just put on a hat and go… leading to a hat collection I’m now gifting as I continue to Swedish Death Clean my life. My advice to anyone who feels self-conscious about wearing hats is to “just put it on and leave your house already!” People will look at you with envy so just keep doing it and get used to being in the spotlight. You’ve inspired me to watch Delancey again, if only to see if I can get a better look at the lunch money dress! It’s stunning and I want one…
