Not only are they used to sketching ideas with paper and brushes, but the following designers have also used their fashion eyes and tried their hand at the director to create movies that are appreciated both in terms of content both form.
When fashion designers “cross the field” as directors
Unsettled in one field, many fashion designers have encroached on a field with a high artistic content, which is cinema. Regardless of their commercial success or whether they’ve won over critics, there’s one thing all designers have in common when taking on the role of director: they make sure their shots are the same. trendy and trendy.
Referring to Tom Ford is referring to a Gucci dynasty that is loose, seductive, and captivating. That “magic” follows the designer even when he is behind the camera. With only two works, Tom Ford has cleared all doubts of the audience about his ability to handle cinema and fashion.
The debut film, A Single Man (2009), was a masterpiece of ’60s monochrome fashion. Not only showing his expertise in designing both men’s and women’s clothing, but Tom Ford also asserts that the sexy does not have to be as bold as the designs he made at Gucci. Charlotte Roberts (played by Julianne Moore) still exudes seductive femininity, making viewers curious even when wearing a maxi dress ankle length.
It is the curves that are emphasized by the black fabric on the sides of the skirt, the well-fitted seams have successfully completed the “work” to create a simple but not monotonous outfit. Although the female lead does not appear in many different looks, the moment of Julianne Moore’s black and white dress is always mentioned in the list of iconic images in movies. At the same time, the film also received many nominations and was a successful start for the “rookie” director.
Seven years later, the designer once again took the camera, and this time, the evocative “Tom Ford” was shown more clearly than ever in the psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals (2016 ). No longer responsible for designing costumes, but the influence of his fashion thinking still covers the general style of Susan Morrow (Amy Adams).
Looking at the deep neckline LBD, combined with large round jewelry, you can’t help but see the silhouette of the Gucci Spring-Summer 1996 collection. Minimize textures and colors, in women’s outfits. The main theme exudes a “silent luxury” vibe as created by a designer specializing in high-end fashion. Nocturnal Animals is also one of the films of the 2010s that received many compliments on how to sketch office fashion.
The French designer, the mother of the eponymous brand many times appearing during Paris Fashion Week, is a movie fanatic. She repeatedly showed her love and investment in films, officially marking the role of director with the film Je appellee Hmmm … in 2013. Although her debut work was not too groundbreaking in terms of filming. However, contact with the “child” of director Agnès B makes the audience familiar with everyday French items in a French film made by the French himself.
The Rodarte founding sisters experienced the directorial role 12 years after the “birth” of the luxury brand. Like Tom Ford, they opted for a psychological thriller and explored the theme of post-tragedy mental obsessions through Woodshock (2017).
Set in the deep pine forest, Theresa (Kirsten Dunst)’s wardrobe is a rotation between a ghostly fairy-core through a silk slip dress and unusual touches from the urban breath-like sequins. Despite receiving many compliments in terms of visuals, Woodshock, according to public opinion, needs more improvements in content. Whether the Mulleavy sisters will continue as directors is an open question, but fans will be eager to see the Rodarte founders’ creativity on the big screen again.
