If you haven’t seen Giant, you should. It has EVERYTHING.
It’s got Rock Hudson, it’s got Liz Taylor, it’s got James freaking Dean. *swoon* (Fun fact: it’s the last film he ever made.)
It’s got old money and new money, it’s got grit and glamour, it’s got privilege and humility.
It bucks family traditions, it disrupts social structures, and it defiantly challenges cultural injustices. It proves money can’t buy happiness.
It has family feuds, and fistfights, and oh my word, does it have fashion.
Giant was the inspiration behind this fall’s collections. Not only does it embody so much of the Western vibe we so adore, but it also takes you on a journey with the characters. Throughout their evolvement, you love them and hate them and back again, but somewhere along the way, you identify with them.
Giant is so chock-full of characters and themes that it gave us design fuel for an entire collection, and we hope to do it justice. We’ve broken it down to mini-collections, the first of which is this one: The Wildcatter, an ode to Jett Rink and James Dean.
