5 Times That The Witches Was So AW15
The Debrief: I don’t want cock-a-leekie, I don’t like cock-a-leekie, I like cress
The Witches is an absolute gem of a film from 1990, based on a Roald Dahl book. If you haven’t seen it – spoiler alert – here is a summary. Grand High Witch Anjelica Huston goes to Newquay for a mini-break, peels her face off, and then turns two kids into mice before being turned into a (really gross) mouse herself and getting chopped up with a meat cleaver. Happy endings all round, apart from the little girl who dies alone inside of a painting. Bummer.
It’s also a really hot hot pot of AW15 style inspiration, and you could learn a lot from it. Like these things:
If this Marc by Marc Jacobs AW15 beret homage is too subtle for you, then let me refer you to the Gucci resort ’16 collection, where one look involves BOTH A BERET AND A SNAKE. And what does that chocolate bar turn into? Cue not so surprising plot twist IT WAS A SNAKE GUYS.
2. Sports casual
Luke looks like he would totally hit the courts in this. Tres sporty – this has Lacoste written all over it. Although now that I think about it, he really under-utilised the leisure facilities at that hotel.
3. Square-toed shoes
Witches have stumpy toeless feet, which is super handy as toes are a total hindrance and I never believed that bit about pinky toes and balance anyway. And it means they’re well-poised to take advantage of this season’s square-toed shoe trend.
4. Bobble hats
I mean, this is Gucci all over. ALL OVER. Extra points for Heidi plaits, minus points for living inside a painting.
Exactly. *Mic drop*
