Fashion in La Grande Bellezza

The Great Beauty is a 2013 Italian film co-written and directed by Paolo Sorrentino. The main character is an aging socialite, Jep Gambardella, who once wrote a famous novel in his twenties, only to retire into a comfortable life writing cultural columns and throwing parties in Rome. After his 65th birthday party, he walks through the ruins and city streets, encountering the various characters, reflecting on his life, his first love, and sense of unfulfillment. We watched the film observing its fashion. It was not an uncomfortable task:

“If there is one film we wish would guide the direction of men’s style it is La Grande Bellezza.”
