Autumn de Wilde on the Dreamy, Colorful and Period-Authentic Style in ‘Emma’

Warning: Mild spoilers for ‘Emma’ below. But, come on, you at least saw ‘Clueless,’ right?

Confection dressing, statement sleeves, high necks and burnt orange hues: The latest adaptation of “Emma” features plenty of dreamy, elaborate and color-saturated costumes that could have been plucked off the Fall 2020 runways. (Not to mention, the film’s eye-candy backdrops will inspire many an interior design Pinterest board.) But like how director Autumn de Wilde’s vision for the Jane Austen novel stays true to the original . material, the fashion also remains thoroughly authentic to the Regency period. it’s set in. (Although, Anya Taylor-Joy could probably wear one of Emma’s et.al puff-sleeved, lace-trimmed gowns straight off the screen and onto the red carpet.)

A consistent fashion thread runs throughout the career of the first-time feature film auteur, who stunts with her own distinct style: tailored trouser silhouettes, an exceptional hat game and a vintage Victorian cane, which conveniently conceals a shot-size vial and chic glasses. Prior to “Emma,” de Wilde racked up an impressive resumé of directing documentaries and music videos, plus shooting cover art for musicians (and style icons) including Florence + The Machine, Jenny Lewis, The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and Fiona Apple. Her prestigious fashion photography and video portfolio includes a 2015 five-part video series for Prada and a running collaboration with Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
