Time is running so fast and we’re already in November, a meaningful month to me because it’s the month of my birthday (I’m a scorpio, that explains a lot of things I guess ^^)
The inspiration for this very retro photoshoot came to us after watching the latest episodes of the “Fargo,” series whose story takes place in the ’70s. I you haven’t see it yet, I highly recommend you to do so, because it has a universe of its own, which describes with a bitter sense of humor the underneath violence in American society through the investigation of murders in a quiet town in Minnesota.
The disturbing atmosphere of the series is created through its sublime scenery, its unusual plot and its multifaceted characters. Subconsciously, I was inspired by Peggy’s preppy outfit, with a colorful turtleneck sweater, a pinafore dress, high boots and a beret.
Instead of the Minnesota plains, we went to shoot this outfit among the mid seventies towers of the Front de Seine, which also happens to be the location Gondry’s latest videoclip he made for the Chemical Brothers. I hope you’ll enjoy these photos, which would have been more numerous if the weather had helped us ! I think you noticed I post less often these days but this is to offer you things a little more thoughtful and accomplished that every day outfit (though I will continue to post these). Tell me if you think this is a good idea, and what I told you very quickly!
The inspiration for the outfit:
