Ah, but to get a peek inside the mind of Gherardo Felloni, Roger Vivier's Creative Director and mastermind behind the glam/camp/but always chic new direction of the revered French accessories brand. His collection presentations are always a feast on the eyes, a theatre set where the shoe is the star. Safely dreaming in Isola del Giglio in Italy, Gherardo kindly supplied us with his top four films and reasons to watch during this time of quarantine, where we may not be able to travel but our minds are free to roam wild. 

1. Death Becomes Her, with Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn and Bruce Willis
Release Date: December 23, 1992
Film Director: Robert Zemeckis
Why? It is one of my favourite films and I watch it at least once a year. It makes me think of how many women will leave the house after the quarantine without going to the aesthetician!

2. Belle de Jour, with Catherine Deneuve.
Release date: May 24, 1967 (France)
Film Director: Luis Buñuel.
Why? It makes me think of Paris, the city where I live and that I would love to see again as how I remember it before the quarantine.

3.Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto (Swept Away... by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August), with Mariangela Melato and Giancarlo Giannini.
Release Date: December 19, 1974
Film director: Lina Wertmüller.
Why? This film speaks of a return to a primordial nature, on a deserted island, and isolation through a history of primordial love. It makes me laugh as I am actually isolated with my partner on a small island of the Tuscan archipelago, the island of Giglio.

4. Nella città l'inferno (Behind Closed Shutters), with Anna Magnani.
Release date: June 3, 1959
Film Director: Renato Castellani.
Why? It is Neorealist film. Neorealism is a cultural movement, born and developed in Italy during the Second World War and in the immediate post-war period. It makes me think that, after this period of crisis similar to a war, we will return to see a reality with cinematographic eyes, very similar to that period.
