Trainspotting maybe?
I think I may have read somewhere that It had an impact, but it's possible I've mixed it up with some other movie

Do you think any movies had a particularly strong influence, rather than being influenced by, or being a caricature of the style at the time?

 

I suppose Back to the Future 2 had those nikes released eventually. Still no hoverboard though...

people have always mocked what they see in music and movies.

Unless I'm understanding wrong, I don't think it's fair to say people always mock what they see in music and movies. EDIT: Duh, you meant 'mock' as in mimic. Hah.

As for movies, La Haine has had a big influence on some current designers. It was part of the inspiration for one of Siki Im's collections. Not streetwear, but Gattaca seems to be a reference point that comes up a bunch. Miharayasuhiro seems to reference Japanese gangster movies sometimes, though I don't know enough to point to any specific one. I'm sure someone who knows more could come up with a bunch of examples.

I would guess that influence/d is hard to separate. You could watch Diva (1981), one of the most stylish films of all time, along with La Haine, or the Fifth Element (JpG did the costumes). Most everything that's cinema du look. Or, like P4 said, a whole lot of Japanese gangster movies that I know nothing about.

What do you mean by streetwear though ? Is designer streetwear ?
post #81817 of 99744
Never knew La Haine was so influential. Guess I gotta watch it again...

much as i liked it, it really was a very exaggerated take on the banlieu there, to the point that many people didn't appreciate how they'd been portrayed.

I have no idea what streetwear means at this point. Seems to mean something specific in Japan and here in the U.S. it's just kind of a generic catch-all. Might be my misunderstanding though. I dunno. I hear people here using the distinctions "designer" and "contemporary" much more.

I got another one: Tim Burton's Batman.



Kidding. Though there is this look in Undercoverism FW12.

Anyone have any experience with Visvim packs, both backpacks and messengers? I'm attracted to their aesthetics and would love some info on their function and durability.
post #81821 of 99744
there are many layers within cinema i think. maybe the outfit worn can give an impact, but even more so the atmosphere, the attitude.. if you just wanna see nice clothes on film, i can say those mc people are dying to be mistaken as bond.. other movies in that vein would be marcelo mastroianni films, and i like the mood of le samourai and tinker tailor soldier spy. i saw one asian, probably hk, film that is impossibly stylish. like a movie full of labelking. didnt know the name though.

also try stuff like cowboy bebop.

If this is purely from a research standpoint, and not because you're looking for men's style inspiration - hear me out - Clueless is a prime example of what your initial question was asking about.  I can't find the interview where I had read it, but apparently girls didn't dress like that (and barely any even talked like that) until the movie came out, and it was such a huge success that it really changed the direction of mainstream girl's fashion for a few years there.  It was like a conscious decision to create a new style entirely for the universe that it took place in.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I should probably clear up what I'm getting at though.

@Synthese, never knew that he did the costumes for the Fifth Element, damn.

I probably worded it wrong, but it's probably more clarifying to give an example. Like when Marlon Brando wore a t shirt in A Streetcar Named Desire, suddenly t shirts became worn more and by itself. I was trying to see what other films, especially more modern ones, have similar consequences but was having trouble thinking of any.

Yep, exactly what I was getting at, with it being inline with my taste in clothing as a slight plus.
