WES ANDERSON 17.1
The Director & his fantastical world
Wes Anderson finally came out with Isle Of Dogs this year (his first directorial outing since the fantastical The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014), and after catching it recently, we decided to pay the brilliant Director homage for his style – both onscreen and off. Never has there been a filmmaker that has managed to do such offbeat cinema, yet surpassed all expectations with every new one he makes. So to mark the man of the moment himself, and our personal favourite here at Juice, we decided to revisit some of his most iconic characters and snag their looks, and also did a DIY take on Mr. Anderson’s style.
Her eclectic persona+her army of tennis dresses made the teenagers in us want to snag the look right down to the pat. Especially that gorgeous poker straight hair and those kohl-rimmed eyes. Though, you can always trade in those Oxfords for a pair of sneakers or fan-cey flipflops to take it up a notch.
Her equally eccentric brother-meets-lover (she was adopted before you start to say yikes, but agreed it’s still a lil weird), and his wardrobe of tennis tees+camel suits and that hippie hair that actually made scruffy chic.
By far our fav Wes Anderson movie, we loved absolutely everything about this one right from its ensemble of some much beloved actors like Ralph Fiennes and Adrien Brody to its magical cinematography and those quirky characters and storyline.
We loved the whole Swiss milkmaid hairstyle and the cutesy frocks that she wore with those adorable Peter Pan collars. Simple, but so apt for a last minute Halloween costume, no?
The sweet, simple Lobby Boy and his endearingly striking purple uniform made us totally want to snag the same look in the exact purple with those darling buttons. Halloween costume no. 2 anybody?
Set in the 60s, this sweet coming-of-age movie made us want to go exploring too, in the style department that is. Yes, the protagonists were kids, but they did set some major #fashgoals, especially Suzy Bishop and her super chic dresses and that beret.
A total oddball, yet feisty AF Suzy wore the most covetable dresses with contrasting Peter Pan collars on them. And, that flamin’ red hair and that blue shadow – j’adore.
The super geeky, yet cute Sam was a total Boyscout if ever there was one in his camouflage ensemble and that raccoon tail hat.
Who are we kidding guys, apart from the girls perhaps, the rest of the characters in every Wes Anderson film is fantastical to such a degree that it’s kinda hard to imagine a guy wearing them in the day to day – ya know what we mean? #PerfectHalloweenMaterialTho
