I Am Love Costume Sketches

It’s clear I love the elegant ensembles in I Am Love . Costume Desginer Antonella Cannarozzi teamed up with Jil Sander to design the outfits to express the decadent Milanese high life. I wanted to pull out the original sketches to compare against the finished designs and then compare against Jill Sander‘s SS 2011 ready to wear collection. It’s bursting in colour and blocks them bolding against each other. Do you think she was inspired by this film too??

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!
