A Single Man

USA, 2009 Directed: Tom Ford. Starring: Colin Firth, Julianne Moore.

Ok. It’s really about time I change topic. Why don’t we jump forward a few decades to a film made by a fashion kingpin. A film made by an ex-Gucci head designer? Sounds like a trivia night question. But it was, and it’s fantastic, and you’ve probably already seen and drooled over it. A Single Man directed by the oh-so-accomplished, Tom Ford.

The story follows George Falconer, a university professor in a sad and desperate state as he struggles to come to terms with the death of his longtime partner. It takes place throughout a single day as he plans to commit suicide. The images are precise, many of them extremely close and revealing reflecting George’s lingering on the subtle points of his life as he muses he’s seeing them for the last time. Beautiful colour scheme and soundtrack, A Single Man is inspiration a bounty.

The tragic and beautiful Charley really struck a chord with me. I adore her abode filled crazy and beautiful textiles. There is something so melodramatic about her appearance.

One of my favourite shots. I thought about this image for days after seeing it. Such modish glamour. Such precision. I wish I could take the time to dress up like this every morning.

Breathless Trailer

Silly me. How could I not include the trailer for Breathless? It is a shame it does not have the soundtrack A bout de souffle by French jazzman Martial Solal. It’s mesmerising!

Breathless à la Vogue

US Vogue, Oct 1990. Photographed: Ellen Von Unwerth. Starring: Christy Turlington

I love catching fashion editorials that take from the movies. It’s always fun to see how someone reinvents and interprets the stylistic traits of a character. It’s also a good excuse to dig around and pull out editorials from days gone by (and which one’s are still vivid in our memories!).

I couldn’t help use yesterday’s post as an excuse to look again at one of my most darling films, Breathless, reinterprets here for US Vogue, October 1990 by Ellen Von Unwerth. Enjoy!!
