Jarman emerged onto the world of film as a production designer for one of my favorite films The Devils (If you can get your hands on a copy, do so). Later he directed Carvaggio (1986). I have read that he created a film that follows the life of Ludvig Wittgenstein. I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
The wrinkled and worn looks hit the runway for Burberry's Spring 09 show. The show "Crumpled Classics" was inspired by the personal style of groundbreaking artist Derek Jarman. Bucket hats and fisherman's coats suggested a man in his element. The deconstructed outwear spoke of both comfort and fragility. Bailey took the design house into personal territory with looks that are at once contemporary and nostalgic. The soft, deconstructed sportswear pieces are wonderful reinterpretations of the Burberry staples.
