inspired by: la piscine.
last days of summer, inspired by the classic and very cinematic french film.
over the summer, i watched and fell in love with the french cinematic classic la piscine starring alain delon, romy schneider, maurice ronet, and jane birkin in the steamy 1969 drama. it's one of those smoldering films the french do so well, and the mid-century modern set design, the fashion, and the entire 60's vibe really inspired me. so, i thought maybe i'd start a new blog series 'inspired by' with my quirky interpretations. i love foreign films and watched this one on the criterion collection, which, if you haven't checked out has some wonderful films available for viewing on their streaming channel. anyway, la piscine takes place in a fabulous holiday home on the french riviera, and you guessed it, the film centers quite a bit around the swimming pool. so, without further ado, i give you the inspiration i took away from watching this wonderful french film. voila!
