Sometimes a touch of color, not too flashy, can add a different and positive twist to an all black or monocromatic ensemble. Although this outfit is something that would be worn in Spring/Summer, for Fall/Winter one can wear it too just by adding a jacket, black or colored, and a matching scarf.

Based on the iconic Studio 54, this 1998 film starring Salma Hayek, Mike Myers, Ryan Philippe, and Neve Campbell tries to recreate the club's nights and its history. The plot is a good one, but what makes this film worth watching too is its soundtrack.
It's one of those CDs that you could survive in a deserted island with and not need any other music. One of the best 70s disco music compilations ever done in history.

Yet this time we have a more "formal"/dandy look worn by Johnson in the 80s, an Oxford Grey jacket, with matching skinny tie, tie bar, black trousers, and crisp white shirt. Definetly a great option to wear during Fall/Winter. You can complete the look with a pair of black Wayfarers.

It is recommended by many to only wear 2 or 3 colors on an outfit, yet Michael Bastian is groundbreaking and shows us that one can mix and match as many colors and textures as you please, and still have visual harmony. The above outfit has a velvet jacket, which is a must for Fall/Winter, yet the way it is worn is not very F/W like but rather with a French Riviera Summer twist. The jacket is paired with a white shirt, a red "checkered" scarf, an oxford trouser, what appears to be a "python" belt and some slippers with "Navajo" motiffs.

Worth of mention is the film's soundtrack composed by Francis Lai, who had composed previously the soundtrack for two of Lelouch's hit films of the late 60s: "Un Homme Et Une Femme" and "Vivre Pour Vivre".
Below a video in which one can see Francoise & Henri flying over the Grand Canyon and listen to the film's theme song. The second video gives us a glimpse at a crucial moment in Francoise's life during the movie.
I would like to wish all of you my readers a Happy Valentine's Day!
And well to end this post, I'd like to say that I send my condolences to the family and friends of British designer Alexander Mc Queen who passed away yesterday at the age of 40. May he rest in peace and I'm sure his legacy will continue living for the upcoming decades.
