So writes Oscar Wilde in A Good Woman or rather Lady Windermere's Fan, his 1893 play, which this 2004 production was based upon. I missed it the first time around but was glad I came across it on Netflix. The story is set in the 1930's on Italy's Amalfi coast and costume designer John Bloomfield did a wonderful job with the clothes.
Tom Wilkinson's character gets the most benefit from Bloomfield. He's dressed in a minimalist palette of tan, white and black morning and night, illustrating how unnecessary color is to a well dressed man.
Technically this isn't a new film but nonetheless I think it's the best on-camera wardrobe I've seen this year.
