THE LOOK: BLOW UP



While Antonioni’s classic has never been considered exceptional in the plot department, we’ve long since nominated his 1966 film to the style hall of fame. Just look at Veruschka, cowering like a minx for the camera while David Hemmings makes her work for it. There’s nothing about this movie that doesn’t scream seminal 60′s style, so we’ve broken down the look that it takes for an intrepid photographer to recreate this iconic moment (Veruschka not included)

  1. Fujifilm FinePix x100 $1,199 B&H Photo/Video - We had the pleasure of playing with this bad boy over the weekend and found it damn near impossible to take a bad photo with. Pair epic quality with a classic look that undercuts even the cheapest Leica, and you’ve got yourself a winner.
  2. Paul Smith Slim-Fit Cotton-Blend Trousers $375 Mr. Porter - If your wardrobe isn’t already peppered with British mainstay Paul Smith’s fabrics and accessories, here is the perfect place to start. The hems on these trousers come unfinished, allowing you to create a look all your own.
  3. Jean Shop Chambray Shirt £160 Mr. Porter UK - The perfect weekender shirt, you’ll feel right at home in Jean Shop’s chambray. Hemmings approved.
  4. Gucci Leather Horsebit Loafers $705 Bluefly.com - Listen, it’s simple. If you want to channel David Hemmings, who was channelling Richard Avedon, who was getting his lifestyle tips directly from god (we presume) you need to wrap your feet in the classics. Gucci woven leathers are acceptable in any situation, with any number of supermodels cowering beneath you.
