Cannes Film Festival 2016: Woody Allen’s Cafe Society

With Cannes Film Festival underway at the moment we have been keeping our eyes on all the movie star glamour. In particular we are excited about the release of Cafe Society, directed by Woody Allen and starring leading ladies, Jeannie Berlin, Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart. This romantic comedy is set in the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life. To celebrate it’s release at Cannes we have put together some 1930 inspired outfits from our current collection that epitomise retro Hollywood Glamour.

Channel retro romance with a vintage-style tea dress, as sported by Kristen Stewart’s character, Vonnie in the film. Our Riley Dress and Botticelli Dress with abstract and florals prints ooze pretty femininity and style. These colourful numbers both have v-neck features at both the front and back of the dress, elongating the neck and working with the nipped in waist to flare out into a gorgeous, full skirt. Perfect for any outdoor summer event you have coming up.

For understated retro seaside style portrayed in the film, pair our beautifully tailored Ernst Shorts with a printed top. The sophisticated short is finished with a front zip, button and belt loops - perfect if you want to copy Kristen’s vintage style and wrap a colourful tie around your waist. The modest length is suitable for all shapes, while useful pockets make these a great option for summer days out. Wear with either our Benson or Gaugin Tops, for a relaxed yet chic outfit perfect for a stroll along the beach front.
