Sundance Style III: A Streetcar Named Desire
For the last installment of our Sundance Style Series, we get back to a universal cinema classic. A Streetcar Named Desire was featured in the first ever Sundance Festival in 1978. Ladies there’s lots of sweet fashion inspiration from Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois but the real style standout from the film is Marlon Brando’s fitted tee. In the fifties, when the film was made, t-shirts were an undergarment and thus weren’t form fitting so Brando’s iconic tee had to be sewn tight. The t-shirt followed up it’s starring role in Streetcar with a turn on James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause and was forever cemented in popular fashion. Now you know.
