When Magdalena Frackowiak stepped onto Prada’s menswear runway earlier this week in a sporty headband, vintage-looking fur, and color-blocked trousers, we immediately visualized Margot and Richie from The Royal Tenenbaums. Even if, as Tim Blanks pointed out in his review, that reference “seemed a tad literal” for Miuccia, it got us thinking about other recent looks that fit director Wes Anderson’s distinctive country club-meets-seventies-rec room aesthetic. At Carven, Guillaume Henry whipped up preppy madras for the boys and tailored seersucker separates for the girls, while No. 21’s Alessandro Dell’Acqua mixed and matched stripes and florals with off-kilter panache. Stella McCartney stirred up her own mise-en-scène, putting on a carnival-themed Resort presentation with models lounging on hammocks in slouchy suits (pictured) that would make Anderson’s costume designer jealous.
