We recently watched 3 Coins in The Fountain and while I found the film rather silly, the wardrobe of the three main characters were quite stunning. The film takes place in Rome and centers around the lives of three American secretaries living there. Just look at that two-toned green beauty above! It has precious little buttons at the shoulder.
These images were captured by Sweet Sunday Mornings, a real treasure of a blog that explores costume and production design in vintage-oriented films.
This character was extremely annoying to me, but her clothes were pretty wonderful. I love that blouse in the top photo, and look at the buttons on the sleeve (which I didn’t notice until I saw this image).
A beautiful silk dress worn to an Italian countryside picnic.
Love the detail on this dress (and the kitten).
More lovely yellow silk. Notice the direction of the stripes… it looks like the top is cut on the bias.
Just lovely all around. Take a look at all of the photos at Sweet Sunday Mornings, along with many other pretty films!
