Queens-born actor Adrien Brody first captured Hollywood’s attention in The Pianist, a performance which won him the Academy Award for Best Actor at just 29 years old – the youngest ever to receive the accolade. With an intense demeanour and dramatic, aquiline features, the six-foot-one New Yorker was cast as a heartthrob for the intellectual cinemagoer, with the style credentials to match – culminating in a turn on the Prada runway for the house’s Fall 2020 show.
But it’s the films of longtime collaborator Wes Anderson that he’s best known, with memorable roles in The Grand Budapest Hotel – he is the villainous, moustached and theatrically titled Dmitri Desgoffe und Taxis – Fantastic Mr Fox – a surreal turn as a diminutive field mouse – and 2007’s The Darjeeling Limited, in which he plays Peter L. Whitman, one of a trio of brothers on a meandering train journey across India in which the siblings attempt to mend lost family ties.
The latter was perhaps his most stylish on-screen moment yet: in it, he demonstrates the perfect cross-country wardrobe – a just-oversized dove grey suit, open-buttoned shirt and coloured-lens aviator sunglasses (Peter has a penchant for taking other people’s belongings; the aviators were his father’s). And for the evenings – in a typically Andersonian pastel blue – a pair of boyish cotton pyjamas, with matching eye mask. The two outfits are just about all we see him wearing and – despite the trio of brother’s hefty amount of hand-painted Louis Vuitton luggage – make The Darjeeling Limited a lesson in reducing your travel wardrobe to the bare essentials.
