Fashion in Film Festival: Tony Takitani x Alessandra Vaccari

Pure movie magic.

Pure movie magic.

We've teamed up with Fashion in Film Festival to screen some of fashions most iconic movies at The Hoxton, Holborn.

Jun Ichikawa’s adaptation of Tony Takitani, a short story by Haruki Murakami is a stylish and poignant meditation on emotional attachment and loss. Set against the background of post-war and modern-day Japan, the plot follows the life of Tony Takitani and Eiko, the young woman he marries. Eiko’s obsession with designer clothes and accessories is so powerful that it ends up consuming her and even threatens to undo her. Yet her preoccupation is never treated as evidence of moral decline or superficiality; rather, it is an opportunity to probe complex human emotions such as pleasure and fulfilment, intimacy, isolation, longing and letting go.

Alessandra Vaccari, a fashion historian and theorist based at IUAV University of Venice, will be introducing the film. Her books include Wig Wag: The Flags of Fashion (2006) and, with Mario Lupano, Fashion at the Time of Fascism: Italian Modernist Lifestyle 1922-1943, (2009).
