Weekend watch: an Oscar-winning cast for Prada

Most fashion films don’t have the resources or the budget to be enthralling even in the absence of a thrilling storyline. For that, it takes deep creativity on the part of the filmmaker, or in this case a brilliant and professional cast. With Roman Polanski directing and actors Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Kingsley as stars, this short film for Prada had miles of a head start.

And it actually is enthralling in the absence of a particularly thrilling storyline. Ben Kingsley, in saying nothing, gives the best performance of all.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person.

Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
