Happy Thanksgivukkah! I hope you’re enjoying a great weekend full of celebrations, food, friends, and family. I have a really fun Sew & Tell for you today: in honor of BTR’s Screen Week theme, I thought it would be fitting to take a look at some fashion from the silver screen. Now, fashion in film is a huge, broad topic, so I called in my good friend and fellow sartorially-minded cinephile Anthony Platipodis to help me break it down. Each of us chose a favorite vintage fashion film and a favorite contemporary example, and on today’s show, we’ll be discussing the style in four movies: “Top Hat,” (1935), “Leave Her To Heaven” (1945), “Great Expectations,” (1998), and “The Fifth Element” (1997).
Plus, I’ve got some great new music in the mix – fresh tracks from the new solo debut by The Babies frontman Kevin Morby, and Cali garage group Pure Bliss, as well as a track off one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the year to date, Blood Orange’s sophomore release “Cupid Deluxe.” All that, plus a ton more goodies (some fashion film recommendations from fellow Sew & Tell listeners, a great Thanksgiving leftovers recipe, more gorgeous gift ideas!), so whether you’re fighting the Black Friday crowds or curled up at home, tune in and join us for a stylishly entertaining hour here on BreakThru Radio!
