The mini-series “Mrs. America” was released yesterday in the US, which tells about the events of the 1970s related to the adoption of the Equal Rights Amendment for Women. The antagonist and concurrently the main character of the plot was Cate Blanchett, who played the role of an activist of the conservative movement Phyllis Schlafli. The series is based on real events. You can read more about why it is important to watch it here.
The famous costume designer Bina Daigeler was responsible for the characters’ images. Her track record includes “Only Lovers Left Alive” by Jarmusch, “The Return” by Almodovar, “Beautyful” by Iñarritu and other high-profile films. It was not the first time that Daigeler worked on the set with Cate Blanchett. The dresser has already collaborated with the actress on the set of the film “Manifesto”.
Bina Daigeler recreated the wardrobe of the heroine “Mrs. America” with amazing accuracy. The focus is on delicate blouses with bows, blue skirt suits, thin caramel cardigans and delicate violet dresses. Everything that women of fashion wear today. And if from the point of view of Phyllis Schlafly in the context of history you want to argue, then there are no complaints about her vision of fashion. Plus, the 1970s aesthetic is more relevant this spring than ever.
