Thanks to one basic t-shirt, Lovecraft Country‘s dreamy closet was born.
If you have actually been tuning in to Misha Green‘s supernatural scary series on HBO, you understand the program is no casual watch. The anthology series, which focuses on the supernatural experiences of a Black household in 1950s Jim Crow America, can be amazing, moving, perplexing and totally scary with each passing twist and turn. But, there is something about the program that will not make you wish to cover your eyes—which’s the clothing.
With Dayna Pink at the helm of the outfit style, the program aesthetically transfers us back to the vibrant, attractive gown of the 1950s in fresh methods, all while versus the horrible background of the duration.
“[I was] fortunate enough that I didn’t need to keep to the letter of precisely what that duration was we had—due to the fact that this is a dream in such a way,” Pink informed E! News specifically. “There’s [a] fantastical component to it, so I got to include that with what I was doing.”
Given the transcendent plot, Pink might break the style guidelines of history. “I got to take the real silhouettes and the real pieces and then add fashion to that, so sometimes I would take a shape of something from that time and then build it out of a modern fabric,” she discussed. “The colors and the fabrics and the prints of that time maybe were a little different, so I got to mix it up, which was what was so creative and fun about doing the show.” As Pink put it, she and her group got to “take this period and sort of stand it on its head.”
