The Fashion of Klute

The seventies are back in fashion!

So, it may be no surprise to you that the latest film I'm adoring right now is Klute, the 1971 murder mystery that won Jane Fonda an Oscar for Best Actress.



The plot revolves around a missing man and a detective who only has one lead: a fabulous prostitute with a shady past.

I'm not going to lie to you. The dialogue is cheesy as hell and the plot is less than thrilling.

But, the film is worth watching because the fashion is amazing. Legendary costume designer, Ann Roth, paves the way for the decade's most notable trends in this award-winning film.



And Jane Fonda has never looked more chic.



Klute is widely considered to be one of the most stylish films ever made. It is even studied in some university film classes for its inspiration to the fashion world!

The film was the main source of inspiration for this fabulous editorial photographed by Terry Richardson for Vogue Nippon.















If you love 1970s fashion, I highly recommend netflixing this film. You won't be disappointed!
