Screen Style Series Pass

Screen Style 2013


Co-presented with Seattle Met

Many of us who think about fashion and dress consider style to be the loudest and loveliest language available for conveying character. What I wear is meant as a description; I want you to know who I am when we pass each other on the street. But what happens when we enter the realm of the imagined?

Writers, directors, designers, and costumers speak for their characters in direct and indirect ways, and we respond in kind. Holly Golightly's coiffed top-bun and high-neck black dress tell us just as much as her quips about the "mean reds." We know Truman Capote and Blake Edwards' society girl so intimately that we affect her faux naiveties, we tie on her playful pearls.

I imagined Screen Style as an opportunity for Seattle tastemakers to share some of their favorite heros and villains, knowing full-well that they'd be interestingly dressed. And surprising. And complex. And illustrative of the elusive "Seattle style."

This year's panel includes a curator who walks through the galleries in avant-garde asymmetrical layers, a Turkish-born designer who looks like the fifth Rolling Stone, a pair of shopkeepers who make Seattle feel like a Parisian side street, and an artist who passionately, theatrically, and philosophically bridges the soft-sculpture/fashion divide. The curator can tell you about art from the age of Spanish Exploration as well as Yohji Yamamoto. The leather jacket craftsman knows why Mick Jagger looked so painfully chic in a seemingly ho-hum pair of Levi's. The shopkeepers believe that style is something we pass on to our children and their children after that. The artist's most recent work imagines the burial clothes of his best friends.

Seattle is rich with expressive characters. Behind themin their minds and on their bookshelves and big screensthere are legions more. Screen Style is a way to introduce you to all of them.

Screen Style 2013
The Devil is a Woman

Screen Style opening night!

Dress and Drink Happy Hour at 5:30pm!

Dec 13

(Joseph von Sternberg, 1931)

The Devil Is A Woman is the last and most stylized of the Von Sternberg/Dietrich films.  Stunning in bright black and white, it's the story of Concha Perez ("The most daaangerous woman aliiiive" drones Lionel Atwill as a bitter and broken-hearted cast-off, filling in quite nicely for Von Sternberg). Concha begins as a poorly dressed cigarette-maker with curiously impeccable make-up and hair in 1890's-ish "Spain." Cesar Romero, handsome as a God, plays the gay young patriot enthralled with Concha after seeing her in perhaps the most intriguing Spanish-comb/pom-pom/mantilla combination ever enshrined on film. Mark Mitchell


Screen Style 2013
Kenneth Anger Shorts

Dec 13

(Kenneth Anger, various)

Kenneth Anger's ability to dance between the beauty of the beholder and the darkness of the evil is truly visionary. The collaboration of music and clothing will inspire you to seek the unknown and challenge your own talents. His expressionism through storytelling is similar to the expressionism we use when designing jackets. Each garment is designed with an intricate concept and solid craftsmanship, much like Anger's films, created with significance to detail and inner meanings. Aykut Ozen and Julianna Vezzetti

Screen Style 2013

Free pre-screening panel discussion at 6:30pm!

Dec 14

(Hal Ashby, 1975)

A '70s take on late '60s LA: farce and ridiculousness enacted in tiny dresses, ruffled shirts and big hair. Set in 1968, Shampoo presents the side of sixties fashion that made it to expensive Beverly Hills boutiques and hair salons. Gorgeous women in long bangs, miniskirts, and frosted makeup circle around George, the good-looking hairdresser whose uniform is as calculated and elaborate as theirs: shag haircut, heavy jewelry, unbuttoned shirt, leather jacket. At the end, when the plot drops this polished group into a wild LA party they look, well, overdressed. Chiyo Ishikawa


Screen Style 2013
An Education

Dec 15

(Lone Scherfig, 2009)

Though it was nominated for several Oscars, including Best Actress for newcomer Carey Mulligan, surprisingly few people have seen this sweet film. Based on the memoirs of British journalist Lynn Barber, Jenny (played by Mulligan) is a starry-eyed but self aware high school student in 1961 suburban London. While on a rigid Oxford-bound path, she is disillusioned with the dull life she sees before her. Dreaming of the Parisian drama in her French novels full of art, music, and romance, she is easily swept off her feet into the fast world of a well-dressed older man who leads her into his loud, glamorous world.  Jill and Wayne Donnelly
