“The Age of Adeline”. Romantic film on the fashion history.

Trenches from 1970 and 2018

The film “The Age of Adeline” is a message that carries information about beauty, and my post is a small part of this message, at the end of the day we are all parts of something  bigger. In my opinion “The Age of Adeline” is one of the best films about style and  fashion.

Adeline, the main protagonist of the movie, was born in 1908 and at the age of 29 stopped aging due to the accident. Physically she is always 29. The decisive events in her life take place in 2014 when she meets her lover. By 2014 Adeline has lived more than 100 years and throughout the film we observe the fashion of the 20th century represented by Adeline’s looks.

The most natural question after watching the movie is: “Adeline had a gift of living in a young body with a developed, not-aging brain! What did she use this gift for?” So many things could have been done despite the fact that she had to move from place to place!” If you leave this question aside and watch the film as some style magazine and a beautiful love story, you will receive a huge aesthetic pleasure.

The look of Adeline in 2014 ( the picture above)  is very elegant, it consists of items from the seventies, fifties. and few items from present time. The chief costume designer of the movie says that despite the young body, it is in fact a century-old woman who is dressing up.

I like her look enormously, especially in terms of colors, even if there is some level of conservatism in it.  It is interesting how Adeline’s trench from 1970 echoes with the new reading of the trenches from summer-spring 2018’s trends.

Here are some more pictures that I hope will inspire you to watch the movie. Continue reading
