Bright Star & Sophie Digard

Last night we watched Bright Star which is the latest film by Jane Campion.
It's set in 1818 - Hamstead, London and looks at the last two years of the life of poet John Keats and his love affair with Fanny Brawne a student of fashion who lives next door.
I liked the film alot and visually it was stunning!
Every scene was exquisitely styled and shot, luxuriously beautiful like the romantic poetry of Keats ... beauty for beauty's sake.
The costumes were also very striking, defiantly in the style of the day but at the same time very modern in their use of the fabrics and colours.
I was also very excited to see pieces worn by the two Brawne sisters where made by Sophie Digard! I discovered here work almost two years ago now in a tiny shop in Uzes, France where Mum bought a beautiful shawl of hers (you can see it here in my very first blog post) and which was my inspiration to learn how to crochet .
Anyway, it's a beautiful film and I highly recommend it :)


  1. Oh, wow, I was ogling the shawls and the little cardigan the entire movie and couldn't figure out what they were made out of--amazing that it was crochet. Thanks so much for the link, Sophie's work is fascinating :)
