This the season of all things spooky, and so what better way to look at the new season than through the lens of horror’s best heroines? Here’s how to recreate some of the genre’s greatest women using some of autumn/winter 2018’s best bits: from Tippi Hedren’s minty fresh suiting to Sissy Spacek’s prairie dressing.
Pierpaolo Piccioli‘s astonishingly good way with colour has ensured that new shades have returned to the fashion lexicon: case in point, this minty green Valentino suit that bears brilliant resemblance to Tippi Hedren’s famous two-piece. It’s one of the best of the season, so just think of the cost-per-wear (it’s not just for Halloween! You could wear this anywhere!).
Tailoring is one of this season’s standout trends, and skirt suits are really having their moment. So: what better time to choose the cast of Battle Royale as your Halloween-spo? Embrace the beige two piece (the colour is all the rage), a crisp white shirt and some polished brogues and appear the chic-est manifestation of terror imaginable.
Suspiria might have been revived, but the original’s aesthetic will never be replaced. So, as ’70s boho returns to fashion, channel the original Suzy Banyon and throw a knitted cardigan over your floating dress. Team with nude bangles and mules, and you’re well on your way to the Tanz Dance Academy.
Mrs Prada directly reprised Mia Farrow’s phone booth prints for Miu Miu back in A/W 2015, and now Gucci have transformed her nightdress into a denim babydoll. Frankly, if you are blessed with elfin features and have a pixie haircut, there’s no better outfit for you this October.
Raf Simon‘s forays into middle American aesthetic are no better contextualised than by Michael Ritchie’s terrifying 1972 exploration of Kansas ganglands. Pick up his pioneer dress, pair with some raffia accessories and a youthful glow and you’re all set. If you can enlist someone to act as your Lee Marvin, even better.
The Addams Family
It might feel a little obvious, but it’s a classic – and, fabulous as Carolyn Jones may be, nobody embodies campy, gothic glamour quite like Anjelica Huston. Don The Vampire’s Wife‘s perfect black velvet dress (surely you’ve got one by now; if not, this is the perfect excuse), set your hair, and do her proud. Remember: goths never goes out of style.
