Editorial Inspiration : Rear Window

March 20th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Hollywood costumer Edith Head’s legendary collaboration with filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most enduring fashion reference points. Head’s costumes with their luxurious detailing and elegant shapes were the ideal compliment to Hitchcock’s sophisticated heroines and together they shaped the iconic “Hitchcock Blonde” look. The duo worked together on nearly a dozen now classic films – Vertigo, Marnie, Notorious, To Catch a Thief, just to name a few and the legacy of those pictures has influenced everyone from Alexander McQueen to Bill Gayten.

The latest industry power player to find inspiration Head / Hitchcock is none other than Vogue Creative Director, Grace Coddington, who creates an impressive take on Rear Window’s 50s style fashions using the season’s key pieces, with the regal Carolyn Murphy filling the shoes of Grace Kelly and actor Tobey Maguire in the Jimmy Stewart role. The story shot by Peter Lindbergh recreates the atmosphere of L.B. Jeffries’ apartment down to the last detail, but gives things a Vogue twist. Ladylike pieces from Marc Jacobs, Oscar De La Renta and Miu Miu are mixed perfectly for a wardrobe that is steeped in vintage glamour, yet keeps its modernity. Carolyn certainly captures the All-American elegance of Grace and even though Tobey Maguire isn’t our first choice for a Jimmy Stewart substitute, this story still has all the charm & intrigue of a Hitchcock flick.
