we love: wild at heart

David Lynch's Wild at Heart (1990) revolves around a doomed couple, Sailor Ripley and Lula Pace Fortune, played by Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern respectively. On the run from Lula's deranged mother Marietta Fortune, played by Dern's own mother Diane Ladd, the story takes the couple from North Carolina to California, from death metal concert to visions of the good witch from The Wizard of Oz, and from one scene of unbridled passion to the next. Our fashion director has chosen this piece as something that's inspired her this week, but when you chance upon this film for the first time, the effect lasts far longer.
