The Oscars is soon approaching hosting its 86th ceremony on Sunday the 2nd of March. This year there are some great films nominated, not only for the film itself but actually as a source of fashion inspiration. With this in mind we decided to run through what we think are the 6 best films nominated this year for fashion inspiration.
American Hustle follows the story of an unlikely team of con men Irving Rosenfield & Sydney Prosser who are forced to work with the volatile FBI agent Richie Demaso. The film, loosely based on a true story is set in the late 1970’s and the clothing reflects this. Wide ties, big collared shirts and daring coloured & velvet suits play a big part in the movie. For footwear they wear elongated boots in browns such as the Viseu or Cardoso.
Her tells the story of a quiet man named Theodore, who in the process of his divorce falls in love with a computer with a female voice and personality. Theodore himself is essentially a hipster wearing a daily uniform of tortoiseshell glasses, buttoned down oxfords, chinos and a distressed derby such as our Delta shoe.
The Great Gatsby
The film revolves around Nick, a man who moves next to a mysterious, secretive man known as Gatsby and the complications their lives take. Gatsby himself is a refined gentleman whose style is dictated by his time, the 1920’s. You find Gatsby wearing beautiful brown shoes that compliment his selection of light coloured clothing perfectly. We recommend our Osorio loafer.
Philomena tells the tale of Martin Sixsmith, a recently released Labour government adviser who writes a human interest article for the first time. His article focuses on a women named Philomena and the pursuit of her lost son. Martin is a classic and conservative dresser, wearing blazers and jeans for casual wear and a grey suit for more formal appearances. For shoes Martin wears a well worn suede boot such as our Colorado.
The Wolf of Wall Street
Jordan Belfort likes the luxury lifestyle, a con man by trade selling penny stocks to the wealthiest 1% of Americans. He lives a lifestyle incomparable to most; along with the collection of fast cars, mansions, yachts and helicopters he likes the finest clothes. He wears impeccably tailored powerfully cut suits in classic chalk stripes and large lapels. For footwear Jordan spends his time wearing classic leather soled brogues such as our Guara!
Despicable Me 2
Despicable Me returns for its second installment in the series focusing on Gru’s attempt to save the world from El Macho’s plan to gain world domination. Gru has a monotone, casual look wearing a black jacket and trousers with a very narrow pair of pointed Chelsea boot such as our Viseu!
