Well, I spent yesterday afternoon curled up on my sofa watching Mannequin, the a-maz-ing 1987 classic movie. Kim Cattrall plays Emmy, a time travelling girl from ancient Egypt, who finds herself in the 80s as a mannequin and only her creator, Jonathan Switcher (played by Andrew McCarthy. Yep, he's in 'Pretty in Pink' as well, but that's another blog post!), can see her in the flesh. Together they create fab window displays, have all the fun you'd dream of having in an empty department store, and fall in love (awww). It's a great 80s film; cheesy dialogue, bit of a dance montage and, of course, a great soundtrack, not to mention fash-tastic costumes!
Mannequin vs Marc Jacobs
Mannequin vs Luella
Mannequin vs Diane von Furstenberg
Mannequin vs Balmain
Mannequin vs Loewe
What do you think? Whether it's print, style, fabric or colour I think I've found the overall theme for SS10 - Mannequin!
Haven't had enough Mannequin flashbacks? Watch the montage clip in question below (ps. you're welcome!).
