Movies We Love #2

W.E (2011)

We can't say we're fans of Madonna's directorial work, but we absolutely love her movie W.E. Not for the story, not for the cinematography but for the beautiful costume designs. 

If you're keen on fashion and you're currently looking for that 'kick' to help you with your design, W.E is one movie you shouldn't miss. And if you're still a tad doubtful let us do some name dropping; designers who were involved were John Galliano, Madeleine Vionnet, Balenciaga, Issa and so on. We don't want to spoil anything for you - you just have to see the movie yourself!

Hats off to Arianne Phillips who made all the dresses!

We were actually going to reveal our new collection later on next week but we're waaay too excited!! 
If you see our last post you could probably sense we adore Annie Hall. We channeled our little obsession towards our design and we came up with...


Annie (Camel)

Annie (Grey)

These two bags are available at The Goods Dept.

Thank you Diane Keaton! Oh and our design team of course!!

Movies We Love #1

Annie Hall (1977)

One of Woody Allen’s cinematic masterpieces is without a doubt Annie Hall. Both a comedy and a tragedy, the movie contains solid examples of creativity in comedy. It is a film about the absurdity of the human condition. We can go on and on and dissect the movie but we’re not going to lecture you on that.
Annie Hall is a perfect example where masculinity has become a trend in women’s wear. 

Here at Screaming Cheap, we all agree that Annie Hall is the movie that started the 'boyfriend's clothes' look. The fashion forward Annie, played exceptionally well by the young Diane Keaton pushed the androgynous look in the fashion world. 

Suffice to say, this movie inspired us the most for our next collection!

Keep checking our blog for a sneak peak!

Music We Love

Hi peeps! We're currently working hard (yep, really) in our studio designing our next collection and we thought, "wouldn't it be awesome if we can share our inspirations to our lovely friends?". Thanks to technology, we can! 

If you're keen on NIN or you think that Trent Reznor is a genius (he is) we recommend you to check out his latest project, How to Destroy Angels. Keep it Together is the first single from their second album. It's eerily beautiful....

Now... time to somehow incorporate this into our design... Back to work!
