Kirstie Clements: It’s time to analyze the fashion of this iconic reboot of the series

Okay, I tried to resist, but it’s time to evaluate the Sex and city following, That’s it….

This is not going well, my friends. I stuffed myself SATC episode during the last birth, also the first SATC film (not the second cringe, where they travel to the Middle East and start insulting the culture).

I was pleasantly surprised by the outfit from the series two decades later, especially in fashion. Some of Carrie’s craziest outfits (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) at the time are pretty much de rigueur and trendy nowadays, her eventful relationship with Big was heartwarming, the whole series was sexy and current. .

But this new series doesn’t hit the mark.

(SPOILER NOTICE)

Those of us who have aged with the characters have been looking forward to seeing some great 50+ fashion, but Carrie is too stylish and the tragic hats don’t work, Miranda looks clunky and I don’t care. I can’t remember what Charlotte is wearing because Kristin Davies seems to have lost the ability to act and I have to keep looking away.

There are also several awkward “waking up” stories that seem odd and misjudged – it’s a bad case to try too much, along with some crazy podcast riffs and bad comedy routines. I wanted to love her, really, but it’s not easy. The only style tip a friend of mine noticed and commented on is how chic Big’s funeral was, held in a minimalist art space, but which is slightly morbid given the current circumstances.

Patricia Field is the costume designer / stylist behind SATC And AJLT and she is also the creator of the incredibly popular show Emilie in Paris (the second series aired this week). Field continues his art of exaggeration, as protagonist Emily (played by Lily Collins) wears the strangest combination of clothing and accessories ever.

It works because the gorgeous and bubbly Emily is a bit of a fish out of water in chic and understated Paris, and her fun and crazy ensembles reflect that. A better style referee for the older woman is her glamorous boss Sylvie, who wears flattering dresses, slit skirts, high heels and expensive coats with loose hair and natural makeup.

I will persist with That’s it…, hoping it will change, because Carrie has some wonderful pieces in her closet that I would love to review. Vintage fashion and shopping in your wardrobe are all the rage now, and it would do well to pull out some of those beautiful Prada and Chanel tulle and silk evening dresses she wore in the last episode. from SATC, in all those beautiful silvery, peach and neutral tones.

Pulling out the ill-fated wedding dress and giving it a makeover would be a great fashion touch. I think Fendi baguettes are making a comeback, and perhaps the flashy Louis Vuitton bag she gave to her personal assistant (Jennifer Hudson) could make an appearance. Clothes are more interesting than textures.
