Waiting for the Jamboree: 50s Italian Summer

The Talented Mr Ripley is not one of my "cult movies", but I like it.
My favorite part is obviously the idea of that perfect late 50s italian summer that's everywhere in this film. Stereotypical or not - I mean, that's probably what a 50s italian holiday could be only if you are a rich 1950s american girl, minus the homicides of course - the outfits are great!






They always make me think of my all time favorite pret-à-porter collection: Prada S/S 2004.



The movie was also recently featured on Who What Wear Daily for their Currently Channeling section

Fantastic post! I agree, there are elements of that film I loved and others that left me feeling a tad disturbed, but I think the latter was really what the producers/directors were going for.

Thank you for highlighting these amazing pieces! I too would love to have everything! :)

Have a gorgeous day, sweetie!
