Sloshed Chic: Fashion in A Single Man

"There are many things to ogle in Tom Ford’s film A Single Man. Colin Firth’s house. Colin Firth’s car. Colin Firth’s hotness (he looks better than he’s ever done before — that wet-shirt scene included). And a ridiculously honeyed, honed Nicholas Hoult. But one could miss all that and still have plenty to feast on, thanks to the fashion.

Permanently clad in an impeccably cut suit (Ford’s “Falconer”, due to hit shops this summer), with a skinny tie and the coolest retro specs, Firth dresses how we all wished our boyfriends dressed — in the art-directed version of our fantasy lives.

Better still is Julianne Moore as his daytime- drinking, cigarette-smoking fag hag. With a wardrobe that slurs expensively dressed, bored housewife, she’s a study in slightly sloshed chic. Get the look with kaftans, housecoats and the odd marabou slipper. Make-up is all about smoky eyes. Accessorise with a martini for breakfast and some Sobranie Cocktails and you’re done. If a little drunk."
