Men of Style: Marcel of Belle de Jour

Marcel of Belle de Jour
Only one note for Marcel, but he played it well: double breasted leather trench, three piece skinny suit, cane, and grill.

"Your teeth...What happened to them?"
Marcel: "Came out in one blow. Does that bother you?"
"No."


Marcel of Belle de Jour
The search continues for my own pair of "Marcel" boots. Note the purple sock.



Clothes on Film does a fantastic analysis of Catherine Deneuve's costumes in the film. Belle de Jour is a movie I think about quite a lot in terms of style, but that comes as no surprise considering my love of double breasted + trench coats.

  2. love watching anything from 50, 60, up to middle 70... furniture, clothing, seeing it in its original environment gives me a chill.

  3. Those boots are fantastic. And vest is pretty cool, too.

  4. Which reminds me how much I never got over Pierre Clementi's well dressed character who merges an air of crudeness with sophistication in Belle du Jour. Piccoli only comes in second for me in this particular film! haha

  5. another movie i'm not familiar with...will add it to my want-to-watch list.
    i like these stills, the atmosphere, and of course the leather trench. (what Divinitus said in her comment sums it up for me.)
    those teeth, haha- gives new meaning to the term "fierce" style! ;)

  6. You kill me, -h! You do make me laugh. Yes, I note the purple sock ; D

    After leaving a super long comment for Stephanie's birthday, I noticed yours. Short, sweet, & to the point!

    I'm really hoping to get back to Florida this spring & hang out. That's my goal. Hope all's well.

  9. Amazing! I love this movie and definitely dig the clothes. I just saw Shutter Island last night. I was drooling at all the menswear. Such gorgeous textures throughout.

  11. Oh, one of my very *favorite* movies! Bunuel at his best. It's been in my "top five" for so long (along with Unbearable Lightness of Being, wonderful in many ways, not the least of which is Lena Olin's way with a man's hat).

  12. I think you are right about marcel...his style is pretty incredible. he reminds me a little of balenciaga fall/winter 2002...I was also thinking severine's husband in the film had great style as well. I have been meaning to find sunglasses like his :)
