Reel Inspiration – Don’t Look Now

A working vacation in Venice to come to terms with the cruel vicissitude of life that was the accidental drowning in a pond of their young daughter Christine only lands John and Laura Baxter (Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie) in deeper water.

As the city suffers a spate of unexplained murders, Laura is accosted by a blind, alabaster-eyed soothsayer and her equally unsettling sister who mark architectural restorer John’s cards by revealing that they have had visions of young Christine in which she warns that her father is for another world unless he hotfoots it out of Venice sharpish. John is having none of it, but then he experiences visions of his own featuring some little person or another in a red coat just like the one that belonged to his daughter…

Adapted from a short story by Daphne de Maurier, Nicolas Roeg’s beautifully shot and framed Don’t Look Now (1973) remains a deeply unsettling look at love and loss. The shock factor aside, it’s famous for Sutherland and Christie’s notorious sex scene (Did they really do it?), but another more than distinguishing factor is the stunning, so richly textured and coloured, wardrobe.

The morning commute in with award-winning free runner Pip Andersen, who we are pleased to see is getting some good wear out of our navy Hyde Prince of Wales check suit.

Beats the bus.

And it brings to mind Richard’s top suit tip: “Think about what your suit is for. The cut of the suit, the weight and colour of the fabric, the colour of the lining, the number of buttons… These decisions should always be arrived at with a clear idea of how and where you will be wearing the suit.”

See Mr Porter’s brilliant The Commute video here.
