Plea rejected! Lily Collins adored the couture in the second season of Emily in Paris. She requested that some items be added to her personal clothing. Regretfully, stealing stuff off-set would not be a solution.
“I didn’t retain anything this season,” she told Vogue Australia in a story published on Tuesday, November 23. “Trust me, I requested.”
Although there was a lot of glitter and small Prada bags that are “very cute and charming,” there were also a few “amazing outfits” in the last few shows that she had her sights on.
Furthermore, being dressed up after a year in sweats was a welcome change of scenery. “The color and boldness and joy and ease of humor Emily has in her clothes complements her personality, particularly coming out of Covid where comfort was key,” she told the magazine. “Not everything felt very comfy after Covid, but it was really good to have fun with clothes again in the most heightened manner imaginable.”
Collins told Elle earlier this summer that antique items were also valued for the second series.
“One of the benefits of the way we shot season two is the way we fostered vintage in there,” she added. “We’ve repurposed certain essential things in very innovative ways so that you’re reminded that she’s a young lady who likes particular pieces of apparel and can’t simply go out and spend money all the time.”
Nonetheless, she prefers fashionable clothing from Alice + Olivia, Veronica Beard, and Marc Jacobs. “Emily earns money, but I also think we got to play around with things in a manner that you simply have to pretend it’s fashion and a show and it’s fun,” she continued.
Patricia Fields, who previously worked on the first Sex and the City, is the costume designer. Her goal in the midst of it all? Create “a simple statement of pleasure via clothes.”
In an October letter to InStyle, Fields said that she wants to capitalize on Collins’ portrayal of a Midwestern girl in Paris.
“Emily is an optimist, and she would be quite pleased to be an American in Paris,” Fields wrote. “It only made sense to me that she would wear an Eiffel Tower shirt, carry a Mona Lisa purse, and wear a beret.”
“Her style was purposely clichéd, but it was also bright and quirky, and it enabled her to completely convey her pleasure for being there,” she added.
Season two of Emily in Paris will be available on Netflix in December.
