Fashion in Films : Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

This blog’s second post is dedicated to a fashionable film directed by Jim Jarmusch, released in 2013 : Only Lovers Left Alive (trailer here). Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) are vampire couple with very different personalities who are struggling to live in modern world.

Costumes play a huge part in this movie and Tilda Swinton’s character Eve, caught my eyes from the very beginning. She seemed to be floating from scene to scene. Her eastern influenced rock n’ roll outfits blend in with her environment and compliment the beauty of Tangier (the city where she lives).

Best Movie Line : 

Christopher Marlowe : “Anyway, give my regards to that suicidally, romantic scoundrel. I wish I’d met him before I wrote Hamlet. He would have provided the most perfect role model imaginable.”

The whole film is delivered artistically, visually captivating and auditorily delightful. I’d like to recommend everyone to watch if you haven’t.
