Fashion: The Man From U.N.C.L.E

The Man From U.N.C.L.E (2015) provided such a great costume design by Joanna Johnston (Love Actually, Forrest Gump, and Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.) I loved the fashion in this movie so much I decided to talk about it over a collection I created in Polyvore.

30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and partially 60’s were really problematic years when discussing social rights. Racism, sexism and discrimination were alive and pumping. But if there’s something I would save from those years (besides some great movies) is the fashion. I have always been a fan of the classic vintage style.

The famous movie that recreates the famous TV Show of the same name is settled in the 1960’s. Joanna Johnston talked about the many inspirations she took from Vogue issues from 1966 and 1968 as well as specifics such as Victoria Vinciguerra’s style referenced by Marisa Berenson and Veruschka.

While Illya Kuryakin’s famous turtlenecks also appeared in the movie being used by Armie Hammer (I love him so much!) the hat, for example, was inspired by Jean-Paul Belmondo’s hat in À bout de souffle (Breathless).

The movie displays a variety of colors commonly used in the 60’s even though a lot of what Johnston used to dress Elizabeth Debicki (Victoria) and Alicia Vikander (Gaby) are pieces of clothes you can find nowadays in your local extra expensive brand shop. Gaby’s earrings, for example, are Marni and her sunglasses, House of Holland.

Both women style is also very different. While Gaby, a communist young mechanic from East Europe dresses in these very clear, fresh, young colors with a young style. Victoria’s wardrobe is almost exclusively black and white throughout the film.

A while ago after watching the movie I felt terribly inspired and decided to do a collection based on the movie. I’ll leave you with it!

Looks inspired in Characters

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I thought about showing you some sets inspired in characters I love since, you know, usually people dress up for Halloween 🙂

“Lilo” inspired in Lilo & Stitch also known as one of the movies I can’t watch without crying half of it. This is also a kind of disneybound.

“Run Clara and remember” inspired in Clara Oswald from Doctor Who. Honestly Clara dressed so cute, I loved it.

“I’m a medical doctor” inspired in Dana Scully from The X-Files. She is one of my favorite characters from TV. I love Scully so much! Plus I don’t know why I always have the urge to re watch this show. It’s honestly one of my favorites so far.

“GoGo Tomago” inspired by Big Hero 6. Woman Up!

“Molly Smiles” inspired by Uptown Girls. This movie hit me so hard for some reason. I loved it so much and I always would put the song Jesse Spencer sang on YouTube when I was younger.

“Violent ends” inspired by Romeo + Juliet. The movie, the actors, the photography and direction. One of my favorite Shakespeare movie adaptations, plus LEO!!!

“The Mean Reds” inspired by the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Iconic.

“Sally” inspired in The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is more like a disneybound. I don’t know if people would know who you are if you went like this to Disneyland but at least you’re not on full costume.

“Mary” inspired in… yeah you got it, Mary Poppins! I’ve always wanted to dress up like her for Halloween. Maybe next one.

“Evelyn // The Mummy” I loved this character so much, she was so beautiful and nice and smart! I remember, however, that I used to be in love with the third one, which I think it’s the worst one plus adding the fact that Rachel Weisz was no longer there. The thing is, I had a major crush on her son in the movie, he was cute!

“Mina // Dracula” I love Dracula, maybe because I always loved vampires and others spooky creatures. Vampires had been so badly treated by the cinematic industry but this idea of vampires Bram Stoker had always calls my attention.

Sets from May

Like I said a long post ago, probably you don’t remember, didn’t read it or I didn’t even said it, I have a Polyvore account. For those who are staring at my post asking to themselves “what the hell is a polyvore?” Is a fashion site that let’s you create your own sets of clothes, you can also create artistic sets or home sets, meaning it doesn’t have to be clothes only. It’s more of a design thing.

I had my polyvore account for a while now and I love doing sets there so I decided to start a monthly post about the sets I do per month. I’m a bit obsessive so I usually do one per day if I have time… usually I have because I’m a lazy person.

Anyway my user is constellvtion if you want to see more of the sets I made (I make a lot)

“String along”

It may sound stupid but I love creating mini scenarios in my head when I do this. One of the reasons I love creating sets in polyvore is because I feel like I’m creating a character, reason why I started adding pictures to my sets (I didn’t do that before)

Most of the times the titles are references to songs or lyrics that I’m hearing at the moment.

Hope you liked it, see ya!
