There are names that instantly come to mind when thinking of timeless cool. “Jean-Luc Godard” may not be one of them, but it should be. His vision for his films went beyond simply directing actors; he also helped dress them. Directing Breathless and Pierre le Fou, Godard was a seminal part of the French New Wave movement, a casual cinematic style that encouraged experimentation. The director extended this informal style to his wardrobe, especially with his trademark white poplin shirt. RealClearLife gives you a peek into Godard’s refined yet relaxed closet with this outfit below (based on the photo above). Watch an interview with Godard, showcasing the director’s effortless cool, at the bottom.
