If there's one thing that cinephiles have learned after 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 Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel, too — the four films in the spotlight at The Wonderful World of Wes.

For two nights, the Melbourne Fashion Festival and Cinema Nova are teaming up to fill the latter's big screen with precocious high schoolers, eccentric siblings (twice) and eager lobby boys — and the eye-catching outfits they all wear, of course.

Catch Rushmore and The Darjeeling Limited on Tuesday, March 16, and The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums on Wednesday, March 17. Showing at 6.30pm and 8.30pm both ninghts, each screening will be followed by a panel discussion on their costuming choices as well.
