Description

A fascinating look at one of the most experimental, volatile, and influential decades, Film, Fashion, and the 1960s, examines the numerous ways in which film and fashion intersected and affected identity expression during the era. From A Hard Day's Night to Breakfast at Tiffany's, from the works of Ingmar Bergman to Blake Edwards, the groundbreaking cinema of the 1960s often used fashion as the ultimate expression for urbanity, youth, and political (un)awareness. Crumbling hierarchies brought together previously separate cultural domains, and these blurred boundaries could be seen in unisex fashions and roles played out on the silver screen. As this volume amply demonstrates, fashion in films from Italy, France, England, Sweden, India, and the United States helped portray the rapidly changing faces of this cultural avant-gardism. This blending of fashion and film ultimately created a new aesthetic that continues to influence the fashion and media of today.

T HE FIRST SEEDS for this volume were planted in March 2010 at an international one-day symposium initiated by Louise Wallenberg and Eugenia Paulicelli and coorganized by the Centre for Fashion Studies at Stockholm University and the Fashion Studies programs at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. 1 The uniqueness and importance of this international gathering of film and fashion scholars lay in its exploration of the rapport between film, clothing, costume, and identity by way of an open dialogue between scholars and practitioners. 2 The intent of the symposium was to revisit the pioneering and iconic era of the 1960s through fashion and film on the occasion of the era s fiftieth anniversary. The symposium was accompanied by a multimedia exhibition curated by Eugenia Paulicelli and entitled Fashion + Film: the 1960s Revisited , which included photographs, stills, costume sketches, and actual costumes from the 1960s.
The symposium also opened up a dialogue with scholars who had not taken part in the conference but were later contacted in order to add their voices to the topics we discussed and to give a more multinational dimension to the volume. In the process of editing the anthology and creating a coherent structure, Drake Stutesman was invited in 2013 to join the team to share the work, reenergize the collection, and refine its content.
This book would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of the staff at Indiana University Press, particularly the editors Raina Nadine Polivka and Janice Frisch and their close attention, and the detailed, thorough comments from the anonymous external readers of the proposal and manuscript. As editors and authors, we have been very grateful for the support, attention, and guidance we have enjoyed throughout this long process of sharing and dialogue, particularly important for a volume of collected essays containing different voices and edited by those who live and work in different continents. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all the contributors for their hard work and the patience they have shown throughout the different stages.
In particular, the editors would like to thank: the Center for the Humanities, the Fashion Studies (MALS and PhD Concentration) and the PhD program in Comparative Literature, and the Women s Studies Certificate program at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York; the students at Queens College and the Graduate Center; the graduate students and colleagues at the Center for Fashion Studies at Stockholm University; the Costume Design in Film students in the Cinema Studies program at New York University; Stiftelsen Bergmang rdarna on F r , Sweden; Adriana Berselli; Patrizia Calefato; Nancy Deihl; Jane Gaines; and Torkild Thanem, David Ward, and Anna Ward for their unwavering support.
Notes
1 . The symposium received generous funds from Stockholm University and from the Center for the Humanities at the City University of New York Graduate Center, and for this, we are grateful.
2 . Our invited speakers covered topics that ranged from the collaboration between Jean-Luc Godard and costume designer Christiane Fageol in Paris in the 1960s to the outspoken fashion nationalism in romantic American 1960s films and the role of fabric in the texture of cinematic mise-en-abyme of identity in Alfred Hitchcock s work.

FILM, FASHION, AND THE 1960s
Introduction
Eugenia Paulicelli and Louise Wallenberg
T HOMAS, THE PHOTOGRAPHER in Michelangelo Antonioni s film Blow-up , played by David Hemmings, epitomizes the spirit of the 1960s. He wears narrow white jeans and a tight shirt as he wanders restlessly through London parks or streets documenting the lives of homeless people, while also working on a fashion shoot in his studio with the glamorous real-life model Veruschka. By blurring the boundaries of photographic genres with other arts and ways of seeing, as well as engaging with the way fashion and youth culture revolutionized social, personal, and political hierarchies, Blow-up remains the film of the period of transformations in society, culture, and media that was the 1960s. Indeed, it was in the 1960s that, against the background of political unrest and protest, the youth became a new protagonist of social change.
The decade of the 1960s was marked by the culmination of the Marshall Plan, also known as the European Recovery Program, a program that provided aid to a continent wreaked by the havoc of World War II. This plan for economic aid, proposed by the US Secretary of State, General George C. Marshall, contributed massively to the reconstruction of Europe s economies and brought with it a more general Americanization and hybridization of European societies. Against such a background of political change and unrest, this volume seeks to explore some of the important cultural phenomena that impacted film, music, fashion, and other manifestations of culture in the 1960s, especially the shift in boundaries between popular and high cultures. The blurring of boundaries was apparent not only in a number of institutions, including the family, schools, the workplace, but also in gender relations. This cultural shift was also borne out through the emergence of industries that catered to the new tastes of the era, such as ready-to-wear clothing and street styles. These changes in fashion were often linked to the youth rebellions, protest movements, and pop music of the 1960s and are now considered iconic markers of the period.
At the core of this volume is the question of how and why the year 1960 was so foundational for Western and Eastern aesthetics, politics, and culture. The groundbreaking films of the decade-such as La Dolce Vita, bout de souffle, L Avventura, Persona, Cl o de 5 7, Breakfast at Tiffany s , and Psycho -brought with them a revolution in cinematic language and representation that reconfigured time and space and transformed perceptions of reality. Hand in hand with this new kind of filmmaking and film representation that changed the world of cinema, the fashion of the 1960s offered a break with that which came before-both as a hierarchical economic system and as an aesthetic expression. Interestingly, not all of the must-see films mentioned above ha
