Ever since recently viewing the heart-wrenching film Damage (directed in 1992 by Louis Malle), I've been absolutely haunted by Juliette Binoche's exquisitely chic wardrobe in the film, as chosen by Milena Canonero, who, to me, is forever in the echelon of legendary costumers, along with Adrian, Thea Van Runkle (whom I interviewed in Vintage LA), and Orry-Kelly.
Binoche's antique-appraising character dresses as only a woman who grew up in Paris could . . . with compete restain from trend or frivolity, swathed in classic black with the perfect accessories, a sleek androgynous haircut, and exquisite stockings. Her timeless look has sent me on the hunt for a cream silk shirt, dark pinstriped blazer, silver link necklace, matching silver cuffs, and noir trenchcoat . . .
