Football and Fashion

In my view there has never been a really good fashion film nor one on football. Pret a Porter horrified the fashion industry despite insider collaboration and Escape to Victory (which is going to be remade!) is probably the only film with a footballing element anyone really remembers. I vaguely recollect the Sean Bean one When Saturday comes (1996).

It appears that documentaries fair better, think The September Issue. What would I give to create a football documentary of the note of the former. My stars would have to be Jose Mourinho, currently the Inter Milan coach and Josep Guardiola the Barcelona coach. not only would I get to travel to two of my favourite cities but I would be examining the phenomena of the real men who set fashion standards.

Hmmm you're right the fashion industry doesn't tend to like films about itself. Maybe they have no sense of humour? Devil Wears Prada was probably the closest and that was about a Fashion Mag. As for football - it's a struggle to think of one. It may have been about girl's teams but Bend It Like Beckham was certainly not about style!

They both look good.

I have yet to view my copy of "Issue."

I find that the films I see on the fashion industry are not highly complimentary!

I thought Looking for Eric captured what a football film can be... trying to 'act out' playing a game of Football seems to be an impossibility. Add in to that mix Eric Cantona's natural style and you are on to a winner.

Rudo and Cursi was a good laugh too.
