"The Septemberists" by Anthony Goicelea

There’s a special place in my heart for Thom Browne menswear. The Thom Browne suit is so iconic in it’s own way, so individualistic, that when you see it it’s unmistakable. Well the Thom Browne runway sample suit that is(I’ve been told that in stores suits are fitted to order which means they lose a tad of the signature aesthetic).
It was Alexander Fury that tipped me off to the film entitled “The Septemberists”. Fury is apart of one of the groups fueling fashion’s pursuit into film and so the stamp of approval by him carried a lot of weight. After that small trailer I immediately had to go to find the rest of the film
To say that I completely comprehend everything in the film would make me a farce. The thing is that most of the best Fashion Films have at least a touch of something that seems to be a bit incomprehensible. It’s because of how simple the film seems I believe. This simplicity causes a search for a deeper meaning and it’s this deeper meaning is what normally alludes me. It’s at this point that I’m reduced to watching the film and appreciating it for the beauty that it is.
