Filmed after World War II, Federico Fellini's acclaimed satire, La Dolce Vita, hints at an exasperated offspring of repressed female expression. Her contemporary: all about contrasts—sharp and soft, playful but pragmatic, blasé and quick-witted at the same time.

Filmed after World War II, Federico Fellini’s acclaimed satire, La Dolce Vita, is an acute portrayal of the post-war male psyche, but also – albeit mostly on the sideline, because 1960 – hinting at an exasperated offspring of repressed female expression. Anita Ekberg wading, wet, in the Trevi Fountain (now officially illegal, according to new Rome tourism rules) was perhaps the very catalyst of the baby boom… not to make sweeping socio-economic summations (what war?). The Dolce Vita lass is well-endowed and feminine—the unattainable, fur-clad, fantasy figure born via and to the world of hedonistic excess. She is but a fluffy accessory to Marcello’s vanity, a steamy episode in the circularity of his escapism.

Her contemporary however, reels herself centre-stage; entirely un-fussed about her male counterpart’s opinion, and hence rarely vexed. No need for wet stunts, she has a no-BS attitude to endorse – nay, boost – her charm. She wears Mulberry SS19 swinging coats and Rhanders opera gloves during the day. She is all about contrasts—sharp and soft, playful but pragmatic, generally blasé but quick-witted when push comes to shove, just like the 1966 Morris Garages convertible she commandeers.

Precise lines are softened with a blasé attitude, an unexpected hybrid that relies on the coexistence of inseparable contradictory opposites. A butter-soft leather double breasted coat by Miu Miu for her and a simple COS roll-neck for him.

A pinch of salt with every encounter, every stranger’s tale is a new treat to unwrap. She wears a leopard-print coat by BOTEGA VENETA and comically perfect jungle-print bag-ette from FERRAGAMO, a simple frivolity that makes her laugh.
