Samuel and Sons Passementerie


Oscar Inspiration

This year’s Oscar contenders have been personified in passementerie; translated in trim using iconic images as inspiration by the same brilliant team behind our memorable print advertisements.

They’ve captured the rugged terrain of The Revenant, the authentic spirit and color of  1950’s Brooklyn, The Martian’s desolate, otherworldly palette, and finally, the seductive tones and feminine allure of The Danish Girl.
