The Rake Style Guide: A Page From The Tenenbaums

Twenty-one years after its release, The Royal Tenenbaums wardrobe remains the purest embodiment of director Wes Anderson’s bold and monochromatic visual style and the perfect guide to your New York inspired winter wardrobe.
The cast of 'The Royal Tenenbaums' (2001).

Considering how it remains to influence haute-couture fashion brands like Gucci and Prada (who Anderson has worked with), The Royal Tenenbaums offers one of the greatest curations of winter wardrobe inspiration. With its soft palette of golds, greens, browns, and scarlet reds, the film truly lends itself as the perfect cold-weathered style guide for any budding Tenenbaum. The film is made memorable for the unique looks that the main characters display. Dreamed up by Anderson’s long-time costume designer Karen Patch, the dysfunctional Tenenbaum family dress with a blend of bookish, WASP-y, seventies flair. Here, we revisit the style of the main cast and explore how to dress like a Tenenbaum this autumn.
