Style Inspiration: The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Movies act as incredible resources of style inspiration. From Annie Hall (1977) to Drive (2011), films have been the catalysts of trends for decades.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) is one of my favorite movies for its satire, soundtrack, and style. The film’s brilliant cast and perfectly written dialogue are matched only by its iconic visual aesthetic. The main characters all don the same baby blue uniforms complete with custom Adidas sneakers and bright red watch caps for chilly nights at sea. While I tried to find pieces true to the film’s original look, I swapped out the blue pants for a more practical white chino (not that a beanie in summer makes any sense).

Style is a journey.

This is an adventure. -Steve Zissou
