Jules et Jim


I have a love affair with stripes that begun the moment I first saw Francois Truffant's Jules et Jim. Made in 1962 this new wave film is a cinematic love triangle. It is fast, funny and stylish. Jeanne Moreau captivated me and in my heart as an 18 year old (not I hasten to add in 1962!) I aspired to her. Truffant led me on a journey of film and fashion. I affected many a look based on a film but this is the most enduring and the one that remains.

Ah thanks a bunch. It'll be few and far between posts until I ramp up on this. I will try and set it as a stand alone blog so I can do whizzy things!

That striped look has held on for years. It's a popular one.
