Cinematic Classicism

Film noir provides inspiration for steamy fashion advertising

Implications - The fashion industry is consistently inspired by elements of old Hollywood, and now, the era of 'film noir' is becoming a steady influence on fashion design, editorials and advertising. This moody cinematic style, with its dark and sexy, black and white visuals, offers a sultry vibe that definitely captures the viewer's attention. With fashion embracing styles of the past, especially those from the 40s and 50s, it makes sense that such a popular period in film history will continue to be resurrected in different forms.
