Le Temps De L’amour translated to English is: The Time of Love, and when you watch Moonrise Kingdom it is very apparent. From the minute the credits start your journey to falling in love with Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola’s writing begins. The movie is based in the 1960’s so naturally the whole film has a natural glow of retro beauty. The set design is flawless, and the fashion is even more impressive. Not only are there june bug earrings, but there are cute boy scout patches, and a million other things. (Seriously if I listed all the great fashion in this film, we would never see the end of this post.)
The main heroine in the story is Suzy Bishop, a bad ass bitch who isn’t afraid to show her true emotions. Although she’s as tough as nails, her clothing doesn’t show that side of her. She has the classic pre-teen girl get up, which is a nice contrast to her personality. Throughout the film she has the cutest peter-pan collar dresses, saddle shoes, and classic white, knee-high socks. Plus her favorite record is a Françoise Hardy 45, and her dad is Bill Murray. You can’t get much better then that.

Now to the main hero of the story, Sam Shakusky. Although he accidentally lights fires in his sleep, he is one fly son of a bitch. Ever since I first saw this movie I’ve been on a wild goose chase for the perfect boy/girl scout uniform, patches, and a sash. I haven’t even got to the best part: Sam doesn’t believe in gender roles! When Suzy is asking him about his feminine brooch he tells her “It’s not actually meant for a male to wear, but I don’t give a damn.” Plus his raccoon hat is adorable (especially when he puts leaves under it to keep himself cool).
