For a movie with a soaring, emotionally stirring plot, it makes sense that the costumes would need to be clean and a little minimal, so as not to distract from the plot. So we were excited to learn that the master of clean minimalism, designer Jil Sander, designed the costumes for Tilda Swinton‘s new movie I Am Love, which will debut in the US on June 18.
Swinton plays the role of Emma Recchi, a Russian emigre who marries into a wealthy Italian family. We won’t totally spoil the plot for you, but we will say there are a lot of gorgeous looking meals, a love affair, some family melodrama, and buckets and buckets of money. And thanks to Sander, Swinton and the rest of the cast look great at both the high and low points of this emotional roller coaster.
