Fashion in Film: Iconic Outfits from the Big Screen

Many of us have been spending a great deal of time at home due to our current circumstances. With little prospect of seeing those outside of our own households, many of us have found and continue finding ourselves slumped in front of the television feeling bedraggled in our loungewear. With that in mind, here are some of the most iconic fashion moments from film history to put the style back into self-isolation. Illustration by Rebecca Marks Grease There is nothing like a feel-good movie in times of uncertainty, and Grease is exactly that. The 1978 musical has earned its position as an all-time classic for its light-hearted romance and catchy soundtrack, not to mention its iconic wardrobe. P

A Review of A Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Céline Sciamma’s eighteenth century tale of burning desire seeks to re-centre the female gaze and turn the artist/muse dynamic on its head Illustration by Grace Han I had been awaiting the UK release of Céline Sciamma’s new film, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, for months. Not only as an admirer of Sciamma and Adèle Haenel (who plays the titular ‘lady on fire’), but also after having heard the premise and seen the trailer I felt that it was urgent and necessary that I see this film. And so, despite Friday 28th February being a wildly inconvenient day for me to take a trip to the cinema, I listened to my instincts and bought my ticket to the first UK screening.

Pottery 101: For when you're bored at home

I always said to myself that if I didn’t do art history I would be doing ceramics, or marine biology. But you can’t order an ocean online. You can, however, order clay, and thanks to the wondrous Amazon, I was able to get about a kilo of DAS clay. Making pottery is always way more time-consuming than you imagine, especially if you’re a perfectionist. So if you’re looking for a way to pass the time, making pottery is a good choice. It’s very therapeutic which may be helpful if you’re getting overwhelmed by the fake news or general cabin fever. It’s a good skill to have if you ever need to mend broken pots or cups and you get to keep something cute at the end of it! So let’s get started. TOOLS

Youth

Illustration by Himarni Brownsword I am raucous and rebellious and want to revel in being young like a pig rolling in shit. I don’t want to be quietly content; I want my happiness to be obnoxious and acid yellow. I want to get drunk and hug a toilet bowl like a long-lost friend. I want to clamber hungrily into sex. I want to pick up stones on the beach and throw them as far as I can and, splash in the shallow with my clothes on. I want to love so big. I want to overwork and I want to do nothing. I want to be unsatisfied and fling myself at more, those four letters that hold the world inside of them, the O cradling promise like a soft baby. I want to go out without a coat on and shive

We'd love to hear from you!
