almost famous gif, almost famous cinemagraph, almost famous penny laneI’d be surprised if there is anyone out there who reads fashion blogs that hasn’t seen Almost Famous. It seems to have an iconic top spot as a fashionable film. I covered a Marie Claire editorial based on the film here. Over the last month I have noted the unrelenting 1970s references in both High Fashion and on the High Street. Flares, paisley, floppy hats, tassels, waist coats, clogs, PLATFORMS (everywhere!!) and Coachella.

I doubt Almost Famous needs any description of the narrative. The young lad that meets Penny Lane, the playful wanderer played by Kate Hudson on a writing assignment for Rolling Stone magazine. On the tour bus with a bunch of groupies he embarks on the ol’ journey of self discovery. A great wardrobe and a great soundtrack. I suggest it might be worth taking another look if you are loving these 70s fashion flavours of late. Prepare for imagery overload!

Personally, when I think to myself about what a “fashion film” is, I’m not inclined to care for the likes of Sex and The City. I find theme a little too contrived to maintain my interest and the outfits too stylised to scream “faHshion”. I prefer a film to grab me emotionally, sweep me up in its soundtrack, imagery and energy. The clothing speaks something about the character’s identity, situation, dreams or whatever!! Just as we wake up daily and decide how to present ourselves to the world, I want to see the characters in films do likewise and embrace their own personal style.

And if any film could be considered a “fashion film”, the sumptuous, provocative and emotionally charged film, I Am Love, befits perfectly.

I Am Love follows the wealthy Italian Recchi family during their period of turmoil in the dawning years of the new millennium. There are a number of changes and confrontations experience by all, but the most intriguing, and important, revolves around Emma’s (Tilda Swindon) affair with young chef Antonio (Edoardo Gabbriellini). Most impressively, Swindon learnt Italian with a Russian accent for the role and she is most convincing.

I don’t want to indulge in revealing the plot too much. This film in made to be consumed firsthand. The stunning imagery leaves such an impression and is seasoned delectably with it’s soundtrack. The costumes are so striking and Antonella Cannarozzi was appropriately nominated for an Academy Award. Emma is so very elegant colour blocking those slip dresses, with simple dashes of red on the lips and classic sparkles at the ears.(Don’t those wrap around sunglasses so perfectly capture the essence of the time?) A lavish and graceful film, a must see!

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.
