Who among us does not like and does not watch foreign TV shows? It is you? Sure? Never, under any circumstances, have you seen even one episode of Dr. House, Supernatural, or? Hmm, then, perhaps, do not read the following article, it will be absolutely not interesting for you. And for those who are familiar with the above-mentioned names, I propose to consider a familiar topic from a slightly unusual angle, namely, in terms of fashion and style. Let’s start?
And let’s start, perhaps, not with the incredibly popular TV shows with an incalculable army of fans (such as Dr. House), but with their less promoted and much less popular younger brethren:
one. Shield, in Russian translation is known as the Shield. A few years ago was the most popular TV series in the United States about the work of the police. Strangely enough, in Shield there is practically no obligatory American political correctness and heroic statements about the inviolability of democracy. Everything is very honest, truthfully and without embellishment. Accordingly, citizens of the United States are shown not as heroes without fear and reproach in carefully ironed shirts and stylish suits, but as real inhabitants of a real country: jeans, sweatshirts, baseball caps and leather jackets. If the anti-fashion reward existed, Shield would have been out of competition with the wording. There is no style and fashion here. In principle, no.
2 Gates (Gate or Gate) – a new series in the genre of urban mysticism. The main advantage of Gates, in addition to a rather unusual plot and excellent playing actors, is a talented costume designer. It is very rare to see such interesting images in the series created by the second-rate cable TV channel. Moreover, they are interesting not at the expense of shocking and provocativeness, but at the expense of simplicity and harmony: moderately elegant, moderately fashionable and simply stylish dresses with a hint of femininity and sexuality.
3 Goodwife, in Russian translation Good wife. What can I say? Immaculately thoughtful and intriguing plot, but suits in the best American traditions of office style: everything seems to be correct, but from the point of view of fashion a feeling of complete hopelessness rolls after 10 minutes of viewing. Although we should pay tribute to the producers of Goodwife: the principles of middle-class clothing are transferred perfectly.
four. Little pretty liars (Pretty Little Liars). At the heart of the plot – a series of youth bestsellers Sarah Shepard. As a result, firstly, the predominantly teenage target audience and, secondly, they worked out perfectly fashionable and stylistic components. After all, who will be interested in a peer hero dressed as a freak with forty years of exposure? So in LittlePrettyLiars you can find quite bold and bold fashionable images.
five. Californication. I do not know what to say. I love Californication … for sparkling humor, light irony, reckless dialogues of heroes and an indescribable atmosphere of something enchanting and at the same time earthly. Against this background, the costumes and the appearance of the actors pale. Although, to be honest, all the style points are worked out for a solid good. So if there is a desire to take a look at typical middle-class southerners, simply turn on Californication.
That’s all for today. I do not know whether to continue this topic. But if you are still interested, write.
