Business of Fashion recently pointed out that 2020 is shaping up to be “a year without fashion shows”. So, in light of everything that’s going on right now, we’re engaging in a little visual escapism, by streaming our favourite fashion-y films instead.

Here are our top picks.

 

1) A Single Man

Directed by Tom Ford, A Single Man marks the fashion designer’s directorial debut. Not only is it shot beautifully, with a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss, but the sixties-era costumes are like a visual vacation.

 

2) Phantom Thread

Set in London during the 1950s, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread tells the story of an haute couture designer (played by Daniel Day-Lewis) and his muse. It is a gripping story with a well-honed eye for craftsmanship.

 

3) Belle du Jour

This French film stars Catherine Deneuve in one of her most iconic roles. As Séverine, a housewife who spends her afternoons working at a high-class brothel, Deneuve wears a subversive uniform of costumes designed by Yves Saint Laurent.

 

4) The Devil Wears Prada

Set in Andy Sachs’ workplace (remember those?), this film revolves around a fashion magazine that is helmed by a fierce Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly. It is full of funny one-liners and always manages to lift our mood. A lighthearted favourite.

 

5) Coco Before Chanel

Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel was one of the most progressive designers of her time, borrowing masculine details from her male friends’ wardrobes and reinterpreting them for modern women. This film starring Audrey Tautou covers the designer’s early life and gives us insight into her tenacious spirit.
