"The direction I had been given was to contribute, in any fashion that I’d like, on the idea of what “blind for love” means to me. I sat with it for a while not really sure what to do. I had just watched the Truman Show and was on a Peter Weir kick, my room-mate came home and asked me if I’d ever seen Picnic at Hanging Rock— I hadn’t. When I put it on, I was flabbergasted and totally inspired. It’s a very provocative and sexually charged film but also has so much underlying truth. It felt it related intuitively to all many facets and innuendos of the concept “blind for love”. When I told Alessandro my idea he said “You know it’s one of my favorite movies?” Apparently, in every collection he does a piece that attributes the film. When the clothes came, it was funny karma how well that collection in particular worked towards our narrative." - Gia Coppola
