Fetish Fall: The Night Porter

Looks like Liliana Cavani's Il Portiere Di Notte (The Night Porter, 1974) has been used as inspiration by many people this season. Costumes in this controversial film were made by Piero Tosi, who had already worked with Luchino Visconti creating the amazing looks in La Caduta Degli Dei (The Damned, 1969).

Charlotte Rampling's ensemble of army boots and pants, suspenders, peaked cap, and black opera gloves has been imitated countless times in pop culture (Madonna's Justify My Love or Lady Gaga's LoveGame videos among them). But this "Nazi Chic" style has also been an influence in fashion for years, starting in the mid-seventies with the emergence of the punk movement in London. It kept growing and passed from being a marginal trend to become incorporated by big fashion houses to their collections, such as in John Galliano's Christian Dior A/W 2000-01 Haute Couture.

This season it seems to be more present than others, not only in collections such as Marc Jacob's Louis Vuitton A/W 2011-12, but in magazine covers and editorials as well.

Unknown dijo...

You're inspiring me to go back and look at those old Charlotte Rampling movies + Visconti...I think the smoky plastic pumps coming out all over the place for spring are somehow part of this mix too.

Have a wonderful weekend!
