Minutes Of The Fashion/Film Club Meeting: Ari Marcopoulos For YSL, Rodarte For Aronofsky

-------

What’s the best way to kick off a whirlwind tour of Paris? According to Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, a nap. “I think Paris is a perfect place to sleep in,” joked Kate. Hard to fault them for catching a little beauty sleep: They touched down in the City of Light for a party to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Breathless—and they’re recently designed T-shirts and film posters for it—at the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré home of the U.S. Ambassador. Parisian friends Stefano Pilati, Nathalie Rykiel, Olympia Le-Tan, Musée de la Mode’s Pamela Golbin, Sarah Lerfel of Colette, Michel Gaubert, and Alexandre de Betak joined the sisters (pictured, with Ambassador Charles Rivkin and Suzanne Tolson, above) for a fête that felt like a meeting of a new Franco-American Fashion/Film Club. Sound master Gaubert recalled a recent trip to Russia with Anna Mouglalis for a screening of her new Coco Chanel biopic: “We were all in this garage and they didn’t have subtitles, so there were Russian actors speaking the parts live.” As intriguing was Stefano Pilati’s revelation that he commissioned photographer Ari Marcopoulos to direct the short that’ll open his YSL Spring ’11 menswear show later this month. “But,” he teased, “I won’t tell you the plot.” YSL skateboarders, perhaps? The Mulleavys themselves moved from one toile (that’s French for flick) project to the next. “We just did the costumes for Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan,” Kate told us, their first film costume job. A “shared aesthetic” with the director was essential, said Laura, adding that designing for film can be a stretch technically. “Some of the actors had to be able to dance, and so we invented special constructions for that.”
