Sizzling big screen fashion: Little Ashes

By Colin Chapman on May 10th, 2009

McNalty_Little_Ashes.jpgLittle Ashes tells the story of the relationship between Spanish cultural icons Salvador Dalí and Federico Garcia Lorca. Watching it at the weekend I was struck by some fantastic styling and attention to fashion details. What makes the look any different from, say, Brideshead? Well, not a lot, but perhaps its a certain arty, Continental take on Jazz-era, dressing. Dapper suiting, great vintage watches, roomy, pleated pants and Argyll knitwear are standouts but it’s the correspondent shoe that is the killer wardrobe item. Robert Pattinson as the ever-annoying Dalí and doe-eyed Javier Beltran as Federico Garcia Lorca look suitably snazzy but it’s Matthew McNulty as a dashing, macho Luis Buñuel who sets the screen alight, as this moody shot shows.

We buy into the singers who prance around in vintage band uniforms (Gwen) and the art but something we rarely show an interest in is surrealist fashion.

The reason? It’s just too embarrassing to pop down to Tesco’s with a pair of devil horns protruding from your well-styled scalp. Well not anymore. This post will allow you to test the look without looking visually-testing and trust me when I tell you that it is easier than you think.  See after the jump for more information on where this look began and (wearable) items you can put on your shopping list to mimic it.
