Fashion and Film share many qualities and have always influenced each other. Both are spectacle and performance; both are bound up with emotions, desire and the experience of modernity. Fashion and style became reachable for the masses through cinema and, with the genre of fashion film, this continues today.
The Italian Style project aims to show how central clothing and costume design are for film as a vehicle for conveying what has been recognized as an "Italian" style. Focusing on a number of key films and directors from the silent era to the present, the lecture will offer an in-depth exploration of the interaction between fashion and Italian cinema.
