I was scanning the Criterion Collection website trying to figure out what happened to their Festival feature in conjunction with the Auteurs, when I happened upon a bit of news that relevant news for the fashionista film fanatic. It seems that in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Jean-Luc Godard's nouvelle vague instant classic Breathless, Rialto Pictures has recruited Rodarte's Mulleavy Sisters to create a new design based on the New York Herald Tribune t-shirt Jean Seberg dons during the film's memorable opening sequences.
The shirts will, of course, only be available through Barneys and likely will cost a good portion of my paycheck, but do I suddenly want one? Yes. I kind of do. Moreso, though, I feel like someone needs to jump up and start creating original t-shirt designs centered around Godard's other films. Alphaville the t-shirt? Yes, please. Mulleavy's, we should be friends, you like Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast and made light-up heels. There are no other qualifications. [source]
