Phantom Thread

I am a big sucker for anything set in 1950's post-war Britain.

The aesthetic appeals enormously to me, so I left in a state of inspired bliss after watching Phantom Thread.

Daniel Day-Lewis is an actor I have long admired but it was the styling (interiors and clothing) that really got me excited. 

This period is often overlooked in British Fashion but the austerity of the time is delicately broken by flashes of luxury, a silk scarf teamed with a sensible tweed or Pyjamas bought in Mayfair worn with a "make do and mend" waistcoat.

I love that mix and it feels very current and on trend, as we all celebrate the great revival in English cloth mills like Fox Flannels ( who's cloth was used in the film).
