We're getting ready for a few rainy nights in, so we asked our lovely RUBY Head Office team what their favourite movies are, to give you a bit of movie-inspiraton for the weekend ahead!
Minty, National Sales Manager
I am a big fan of the director Wes Anderson. My favourites of his are The Life Aquatic, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited and most recently Moonrise Kingdom!
The costume, soundtracks, set design and stylistic features of each of these films is pretty incredible and always so pleasing to the eye.
Costume designer Milena Canonero who worked on The Darjeeling Limited is amazing! I am obsessed with the customised Louis Vuitton luggage, it is so beautiful. Canonero also did the costume design for The Clockwork Orange and The Shining, another two very good films.
Christine, Managing Director
My favourite movie at the moment is Searching for Sugar Man. It's a real and humble movie with the most amazing music. Rodriguez's journey to South Africa, where he is absolutely huge, has a lovely feel good factor. A must watch!
My favourite movie is Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. It's an old classic that I used to watch with my Dad growing up. The story, actors and scenery are all amazing and I can't look past a good romance!
Emily, Liam Designer
It's a tie between The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Mulholland Drive.
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert has awesome attitude. It's so fun, the colours are so vivid and the way that it is shot really makes me feel like I am on that bus with them.
I'm fascinated by Mulholland Drive. I keep watching it and watching it and every time, I get something new out of it. There is something about it that gets right into my subconscious. I recently got one of the RUBY tassel purses and every time I zip it up I have a genuine flashback to the scene where Betty and Rita zip up Rita’s bag full of cash.
Melanie, Head Pattern Maker
I have many favourites as I am a bit of a movie fan! It's quite hard for me to pick one, but I do love the movie A Good Woman. I love the screen play writing and original author Oscar Wilde. There's also a very good twist at the end of the movie!
Brigit, Stock Controller
I love the quirkiness of The Darjeeling Ltd. Set in India, the scenery is amazing and the Louis Vuitton Luggage Set is incredible. I also have a thing for Adrian Brody which helps too!
Deanna, RUBY Designer
Baz Lurhman's Romeo and Juliet. I saw it for the first time when I was about thirteen at the movies and ran straight across the road to buy the soundtrack. I love everything about it- the music, costumes, direction and of course, Leo at his finest.
Frances, Design & Production Assistant
Life is Beautiful is the most beautifully sad movie ever! Set in Italy in WWII, it focuses on a family's plight in a Nazi Concentration Camp, who try to protect their young son and turn their life into an imaginary game. One to watch in bed on a rainy night with a box of tissues!
Anna-Lise, Brand Manager
I'm obsessed with Clueless and Home Alone. Both films are super nostalgic for me and I could watch them over and over again, sometimes at the annoyance of my friends & family.
I love the costumes in Clueless. Who wouldn't want Cher's virtual closet? And who couldn't love Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone? That movie has some of the best one liners.
