Movie Inspired style : The Talented Mr. Ripley

Hello everyone !

Lately we’ve become a little “movie freaks” but many times we find ourselves focusing in the stylistic details rather than the movie plot (of course then we have to rewind to catch up with the movie, but it doesn’t matter). So we thought that you might be interested to know our point of view on some of our favourite movies’ style and get some inspiration for your own style as well.

One of our favourite movies of all time is The talented Mr. Ripley (which if you haven’t already watched, we highly recommend you). In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley (Matt Damon), a young underachiever, is sent to Europe to retrieve a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy, named Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law). But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.

A very important reason that we like the particular movie is the surpassing 50’s aesthetics.
The admirable clothing and accessories, the unrivalled vehicles, and also the idyllic and bewitching setting in Italy  (Ischia, Procida and Rome) and the list goes on…

Therefore we prepared for you some notable stills of the movie and below some outfits we single out of nowadays.

We hope you enjoy!

Love, A. & S.

Here goes the looks we selected :

*Movie hint*

Searching for movie stills we discovered that a scene in the movie is actually added self-same from the director Antony Minghela, depicting an Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photo in 1960 in Napoli.

Feel free to let us know what do you think.
