The Sartorial Splendour of Wes Anderson
Revisit two of Anderson's classics on the big screen — and listen to fashion experts chat about the films' stunning costume design.
If there's one thing that cinephiles have learned after almost a quarter-century of Wes Anderson films, it's that the director's features look like nothing else on-screen. His love of symmetry is well-known. In fact, you can't miss it. But meticulous detail shines in every element of his movies — especially in the production and costume design.
It's evident in the trailer for his latest movie, The French Dispatch. It made a whole heap of fans buy Team Zissou sneakers after The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. And, it's on display in The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel, too — the two films in the spotlight at The Sartorial Splendour of Wes Anderson.
For two nights, the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival and Cinema Nova are teaming up to fill the latter's big screen with eccentric siblings and eager lobby boys — and the eye-catching outfits they all wear, of course.
Catch The Grand Budapest Hotel at 6.30pm on Tuesday, March 10 and The Royal Tenenbaums at the same time on Wednesday, March 11. Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion on their costuming choices as well.
