Wardrobe stylist Jany Temime has used different styles of clothing to create Hollywood’s most fantastical worlds. She’s outfitted six Harry Potter films, designed space suits for Gravity, and reinvented the Bond “woman” for Spectre. vPassengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, came with a whole new challenge for Temime- Design a wardrobe for the 24th century.
“I think the actors were so afraid I was going to give them little pointed hats and jumpsuits,” says the French costume designer. “But I didn’t do that.”
Passengers, which premieres December 21, tells the story of Jim (Pratt), an engineer from the Midwest, and Aurora (Lawrence), a cosmopolitan New York writer, who are aboard a spaceship taking them to another planet. During it’s travels, the spaceship experiences a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 90 years early.
“The main thing is to get the psychology of the characters,” says Temime. “The fact that it’s happening in the 24th century is important but not that important. It’s a love story that takes place in a closed universe.”
“I think by the 24th century, fashion will have seen it all. We will go back to basics and minimalism, a sort of anti-fashion. I also believe that the social classes will be more divided: The workmen will dress like workmen, and the upper class will be dressed in natural, luxurious fabrics.”
Anti-fashion or otherwise, Temime’s choices for Pratt & Lawrence are stunning. Check them out in the trailer below.
