I know I'm way behind the times, but I finally saw Jean-Luc Godard's 1960 French new wave classic, Breathless (À bout de souffle). I took a bunch of screenshots, and I think the one above shows Jean Seberg in the most iconic outfit from the film: striped shirt, pleated skirt, sunglasses. She is also wearing loafers (or flat shoes) with ankle socks, and is carrying the cutest little white drawstring satchel (blurry here).
I liked the movie. I wouldn't say I loved it. But I enjoyed the music, and the style of filming. I thought Jean-Paul Belmondo was charming, despite the fact that he was, y'know, a cop killer. Jean Seberg's character was sort of meh, I thought...but her look! So chic. The pixie hair, the shades, and the outfits! All amazing.
Even her selling-newspapers-on-the-street outfit is great looking. Love the New York Herald Tribune top and cigarette pants.
You can see the cute little satchel better in this shot.
I'm assuming that's a Burberry trench with plaid lining.
Nearly everything Seberg wears in Breathless is striped, down to her bathrobe (worn most fetchingly by Belmondo here).
And then there is this incredible striped dress worn with white gloves (better photos below).
Love this shot.
A better view of Seberg's dress. Between the collar and the stripes, I'm dead.
I thought this sartorial exchange about Belmondo's outfit was pretty funny.
I love how Seberg is looking at the guy here, like, "what's the big whoop?"
