From Fantasy Film Apparel to Cult Film-Inspired Lookbooks

 - Mar 29, 2018
Film-inspired fashion has a wide range of representation. Some designers choose to represent their favorite cartoons with direct references such as Lazy Oaf's Betty Boop collection or Urban Outfitters' offering in Rick & Morty apparel.

Others undertake a more indirect approach by structuring their film-inspired fashion silhouettes in the aesthetic of their favorite movies. For example, the luxurious sci-fi backpack collection by Raf Simons and Eastpak is a known commentary on the Blade Runner universe through its industrial detailing. However, one needs to consult the designer about his inspiration since it is not overtly apparent.

Finally, there are designers who take it upon themselves to translate their film-inspired fashion into a format appropriate to their medium inspiration. Kenzo, for example, explores the relationship between muse and photographer through a "Yo! My Saint!" cinematic music video that highlights the label's Spring 2018 collection.
