Cosy threads and divine details to ensure you feel your stylish self at home.
Film directors are no strangers to fashion ads. They’re often a beautiful marriage between style and cinema, one that we’re going to visit from time to time in a new series on LauLauLand, Film Directors Doing Fashion Ads (ingeniously titled, I know). First up is Yorgos Lanthinmos, a name that went stratospheric last year thanks […]
There’s nothing like a cocaine snorting, twist dancing, wife of a gang boss to give you some fashion inspiration. This is Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. Throughout the film we see Mia rocking some 90s minimal vibes (a trend that is set to soar further into 2020). This particular […]

Although it was the first feature for director Sofia Coppola, […]
Watching Marie Antoinette made me want to eat some pastries, go to Versailles and buy a corset (you’d need one after scoffing the cream cakes like the ladies in this film).
