The Devil Wears Prada

Hartford York Hats - Men's Brent Black Handwoven Straw Fedora Panama Hat - The Montecristi AficionadoI honestly can’t wait to see Lauren Weisberger’s bestselling novel on the big screen. It’s not the story so much (well, at all really) as it is (1) Meryl Streep – no explanation necessary; and (2) Patricia Field, the movie’s costume designer (explanation to follow).

Patricia Field—you may know her as the “trendsetting costume designer of Sex and the City, [who] made women all over America want to ditch their jeans and get dressed up to go out”—is basically a soul-mate of mine, who says her “aesthetic is influenced less by current designers than by classic movies.”

In my dreams, the fashion world is more glamorous than it is. I’m very inspired by the extravagance of old Hollywood. I love to watch Fred Astaire. It’s all so gorgeous. Of course I know that was another time, but I always lean a bit in that direction, and what’s on-screen becomes hyper-reality. If it were up to me, I’d be putting gloves and hats on people all the time.

I need to watch a musical right now.

Thanks for reading,
Steve Singer
