Season 3 will feature ‘thrift shop’ items
If you thought running in a Chanel crop top was “ringarde,” just wait and see what Season 3 of “Emily In Paris” has in store.
The stars of the colorful comedy teased that the show’s fashion is even “bolder” in the upcoming installment, which drops Dec. 21 on Netflix.
Lucien Laviscount, who plays Alfie, revealed Lily Collins’ character, Emily, hasn’t lost her penchant for polarizing ensembles.
“I would see Lily come to set … it takes your breath away for a second,” he told Page Six on Thursday. “Everything is bigger, better and bolder [this season].”
Although the show has featured a swath of big-name brands, William Abadie said costume designer Marylin Fitoussi also wanted to highlight emerging designers.
“We all spent quite a bit of time in those dressing rooms and [Fitoussi] made a point to include new designers this season,” the actor, who plays Antoine, explained.
“[It’s] a sign of the times to take the high-end designers, the new designers and also go to the thrift shop and bring in antiques and vintage pieces. It helps elevate [the show] and bring diversity in the fashion.”
Samuel Arnold, who plays Emily’s coworker Julien, also credited Fitoussi with helping shape their characters.
“She just understands every character and how to bring them to life through wardrobe,” he explained. “These characters are all so different from one another and she understands all those little worlds.”
In Season 3, Emily is caught in a love triangle between her best friend’s boyfriend, Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), and her new romantic interest, Alfie (Lucien Laviscount).
Collins’ character is also in another kind of triangle in her professional life, as she must decide whether to stick by her boss, Madeline (Kate Walsh), or follow her mentor Sylvie (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu) to a new agency.
Famed costume designer Patricia Field, who worked as a consultant on the Darren Star-helmed series, previously told Page Six she doesn’t let the show’s fashion critics distract her.
“I can’t because I would get confused,” the fashion legend, renowned for her work on “Sex and the City,” said.
“I can only work from my eye, and from the inspiration I get from the actor.”
