Chronology: a film by Luca Guadagnino featuring Mariacarla Boscono


Mariacarla: Field of Fashion

The Model Wears a Selection from Net-a-Porter on the Set of Luca Guadagnino’s Chronology

What happens when you bring three passionate and visionary Italians together to make a film? “Drama of course!,” says model Mariacarla Boscono. Under the direction of Luca Guadagnino and through the lens of director of photography Alessio Bolzoni, Boscono brings a dark and dreamlike romance to Chronology (the director’s cut of the film premieres today on NOWNESS). Here we present a photo shoot of Boscono, taken by Bolzoni in the gardens of Harpsden Court, the centuries-old house in Henley-on-Thames, England, where Chronology was shot. These still images offer the chance to linger over the sumptuous clothes seen in the film, which is styled by AnOther Magazine fashion director Cathy Edwards. Referring to Guadagnino’s feature film, Edwards says: “In I am Love, Tilda Swinton’s character goes through a transformation that is also reflected in her clothes. I was inspired by this as well as by how Luca uses color to punctuate the narrative.” The garments, curated from the autumn 2010 selection of online luxury retailer Net-a-Porter (who co-produced the project with NOWNESS), reflect key designer trends of the season. “I liked the idea of picking different elements from my five favorites,” explains Edwards; “so you get color from Miu Miu, gothic lace from Christopher Kane, graphic structure from Yves Saint Laurent, etc…” And while the surreal mood of the film elevates the fashion to an otherworldly fantasy, these are covetable clothes that stylish women can actually wear, notes Edwards.
