The new DUNE film is beyond awesome! We’ve scene a preview, made for the press and you guys are going to see a eye-popping, beautiful, and thought-provoking take on the classic.
WE WON’T GIVE ANY SPOILERS HERE. JUST GO SEE IT!
But let’s talk fashion first! The costumes are fabulous, and someone sat down and did some world building and styling. The styling points are solid and beautiful. In our humble opinion, they pull a lot from the Ottoman Turks, but you see a lot of “naturalism” as embodied through the lens of an AI. So for example, ask an AI (computer) to design a sea shell. You will get a lot of interesting takes on the classic design that evolution and GOD gave the world. That’s what many of the costumes look like.
We also see streaks of traditional feudal Japan war armor with hints or “design kisses” to legendary costume designer Eiko Ishioka.
We’re very much in love with the outfits of terrible and scary House Harkonnen. We’re happy that David Bautista is doing a lot to help MEN with manly bodies succeed in both Hollywood and fashion.
