La Biennale di Venezia

Who's the director? Who's the star? Who cares? When there's an invitation to a Film Festival screening sitting on your mantel piece, there is surely only one question that really matters: what are you going to wear?

It's not as simple as just throwing on your favourite frock or your slickest tux. If you're going to be sharing a red carpet with the likes of Alicia Vikander, Michael Fassbender, Kristen Stewart and Johnny Depp the style stakes are pretty high.

The secret is knowing your film festivals. The high-glamour dress code at Cannes, for example, is a far cry from the cosy and comfy wrap-ups of Sundance. You can also take a cue from the country in which the festival is held. For the BFI London Film Festival, you're looking at typically quirky British style: edgy frocks for the ladies, and super-slim-fit Savile Row suits in unconventional fabrics with slender ties for the gentlemen. Cannes takes the prize for highest-octane dressing, with the help of designers who'll go to any lengths to get their creations photographed on the famous steps of the Palais des Festivals.

The end of August sees the 73rd year of La Biennale di Venezia in Italy. Founded in 1932, it is the oldest film festival in the world and one of the "Big Three" film festivals alongside the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival. The film festival takes place on the island of the Lido in Venice, and, since its inception the Film Festival has become the most prestigious international film festival in the world. Dress for this celebrated event in Venice means classically glamorous, sultry eveningwear, as befits an Italian festival.

However, as with most things in life, simplicity is, in fact, the answer for both men and women. A flattering, well-fitting silhouette, high quality fabrics and a colour that suits achieve so much more than a gimmicky high-fashion shape or a multitude Swarovski crystals, and it’s with these high quality fabrics that the expertise of Jeeves really comes into its own. Our proprietary 7-stage process means that even the most intricate or tricky outfit can be cleaned to perfection with meticulous attention to detail and made to look as good as new, over and over again.

 So, if you’re attending La Biennale di Venezia, we look forward to caring for your garments after the event! Ciao!
