At its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Call Me by Your Name received a standing ovation. We were a bit late. We watched the movie after the main actor, Timotheée Chalamet was nominated for “Best Actor” by the Academy Awards (Oscar). At the end, the movie only won “Best Adapted Screenplay”.
We were a bit disappointed it didn’t win “Best Picture” ‘cause the aesthetic of the movie is soooo good and soothing. It made us want to pack a suitcase and escape right away to northern Italy, where the movie is set. If we can picture a perfect endless summer break, the scenes of this movie will instantly pop up in our head.
A year later, we’re still inspired by it and we still have a dream to enjoy a blissful summer vacation in northern Italy, reading a book while enjoying brunch or sipping a delicious red wine from a beautifully-shaped glass. Life seems a bit slower there and we’re inspired to spend our days like that.
Now, if you like the movie as much as we do, or if you’re looking for style inspirations with beautiful, simple, and casual vibe, scroll through! You may like what we have picked.
When the air feels clear and the sunlight isn’t scorching hot, you can wear a beautifully-printed dress. Bring your favorite book to read outside and don’t forget to wear shades! Currently we’re obsessed with sunglasses with metallic frame like this!
Both Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer) love wearing shorts. Can’t blame them since it’s summer and the laid back atmosphere of the city totally supports the idea of wearing shorts all the time. We can see you wearing this look for a brunch date, a picnic session, or even a grocery shopping session!
If there’s one summer piece that screams “Leisure!” it’s gotta be jumpsuit. The beauty of jumpsuits, aside from making getting dressed a breeze, is their simplicity and versatility. You can dress it up or dress it down, make them look edgy, simple, or girly. You can do anything with it.
