It’s been quite a year for fashion films, with more and more labels producing interesting short spots to showcase their collections for their campaigns. Miu Miu’s mini-film (The [End) of History Illusion] is the latest to take the spotlight, nabbing a nomination at the prestigious Costume Designers Guild Awards.
Directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall, the short is the 14th entry in the fashion house’s Women’s Tales film series and is nominated for the short form design category. The delightfully creepy clip more than deserves special recognition, as it perfectly utilized Miuccia Prada’s vaguely retro collection, right down to the quirky bathing cap-inspired hats. It almost feels as if the clothes were made specifically for the film instead of the runway.
Of course some of last year’s biggest movies and television shows were recognized as well. Phantom Thread, a film about a British couturier in the ’50s, naturally is up for best Period Film. But what is interesting is that many throwbacks to the ’80s are being praised. Blade Runner 2029, the sequel to the stylish 1982 cult hit, was hotly anticipated for its futuristic fashion, and is competing in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film category against the likes of Thor: Ragnarock, which also had an ‘80s vibe to it.
Meanwhile Glow and Stranger Things are bringing some realness (and in the case of the former, some glam) from the decade to the Period Television category, going up against the massively popular The Crown, which won last year, and has already taken the Emmy.
But our favorite underdog just might be Black Mirror’s “USS Callister” episode, which is nominated for Sci-Fi/Fantasy Television against returning category champion Game of Thrones. Though we’re huge Thrones fans, “USS Callister” nailed its retro-futuristic costumes that perfectly referenced Sci-Fi shows of the 1960s.
The 20th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on February 20th. See the full list of nominees here.END
