LE CARDIGAN QUI A REFAIT SURFACE
You may remember my post about the Missoni sweater I got at Target, against all odds, two years ago. (There was a rush- no, a regular stampede- on anything Missoni had designed for Target.) I still have it even though it is more than two years later and I still love it. Yet, I was relatively surprised to see Kate Blanchett wearing it in Blue Jasmine, the latest Woody Allen movie. A Target sweater? Yes, a Missoni, but really? with her Hermès bag and Roger Vivier shoes?
The (highly important!!) question is this: where did the film's costume designer get it? At Target, that one and only day they still had some? on Ebay afterwards? -everyone was saying that was the reason for the rush on the event in the first place-.
I won't loose sleep over this, of course. it's just funny to see it in the movie, that's all. Of course, the costume designs were certainly chosen a long time ago. Maybe even when THE Missoni/Target line was in the stores. The designer can be commended for his or her thriftiness, in any case.
Two (highly important!!) questions were put to me, by a dear friend: how did you spot it and how do you remember it?
The last (highly philosophical!!) question : is it that important?
To ME it is...somewhat, maybe, a little; enough to bring it to the attention of the Fashion-History/Woody-Allen-movie-hungry readers among you, my no-minute-detail-bores-me readers...
Oh, and if you have not already done so (and if you are in a super, SUPER up mood...) do go see Blue Jasmine.
