Celebrated for his remarkably imaginative films, it is no surprise that director Wes Anderson enlisted the help of Academy Award–nominated costume designer Milena Canonero to dress the eccentric characters of The Grand Budapest Hotel. For the look of hotel concierge Monsieur Gustave (played by Ralph Fiennes), Canonero referenced pre-World War II military uniforms and infused it with Anderson’s unmistakable use of vibrant colors and details.
Set within the whimsical backdrop of the Czech Republic's Grand Budapest Hotel at the time of its majestic heyday, Monsieur Gustave’s purple uniform combines elements that can be replicated into an everyday outfit. Take classic menswear pieces like a button down or blazer and add a feminine twist by referencing the film’s colorful palate and quirky accessories. Add a spritz L’Air de Panache, and you are ready to serve up this film-inspired look.
