Collection: Metropolitan

Inspired by the costumes of Whit Stillman's 1990 Christmastime drama 'Metropolitan'. This film follows a group of young upper-class New Yorkers as they party their way through the debutante season discussing social mobility, philosophy and romance at after-party gatherings. This collection features a range of mostly 80s formal party or prom style dresses. Shop these looks for your special holiday event!

Author Suzanne R. Pucci believes the film deserves full membership in the class of 20th- and early 21st-century Jane Austen remakes such as Ruby in Paradise (1993) and Bridget Jones' Diary (2001). According to her, the film tracks "the Austen phenomenon beyond Austen, into what [is called] the 'post-heritage' film, a kind of historical costume drama that uses the past in a deliberate or explicit way to explore current issues in cultural politics."

In 2015, The New Yorker film critic Richard Brody wrote that Metropolitan is about the plight of America's upper class, or what the film's characters call the "urban haute bourgeoisie", and the "possibility—the necessity—and the difficulty of breaking out of their world and connecting with the wider world, for the benefit of the wider world".
