Madonna's W.E. "most definitely has the fashion world clamoring and bracing itself for a revival of classic and elegant heritage luxury brands such as Vionnet and Mainbocher," Huffinghton Post Style columnist Malcolm Harris writes.
"Madonna's film is a visual and stylistic masterpiece," a dear friend of Malcolm Harris and fashion editor said, after having the chance to see the world premiere of W.E. in Venice. "She described in great detail every pin-tuck, corset, pencil skirt and shade of Wallis blue she witnessed dance across the screen," Harris writes. "The movie will definitely herald a turning point in the direction of fashion and it's relationship with film," he adds.
"With all the renewed interest in these classic heritage brands and the successful relaunch of Vionnet (currently sold in over 200 stores worldwide), it is no wonder the fashion rumor mill is churning about the revitalizing of the ultimate style sleeping beauty -- Mainbocher," Harris writes. He hopes Madonna will fund or even co-design the collection.
Finally, Harris adds that "thanks to the Material Girl there is one thing we know for sure -- the world is about to get a lot more elegant, sophisticated and yes -- very, very romantic."
