I just watched The Edge of Love, starring Kiera Knightly and Sienna Miller. The story was along the lines of Closer (Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts) and Atonement. Set during WWII in London and Wales, I became jealous watching the 2 women wear black and green wellies with wool socks and adorable flower printed dresses with wool cardigans and floppy hats!
I love how the costume designer shows us difference between la mode between broken down London and Wales at the time. For example, in the beginning we see Kiera mainly wearing tight knee-length pin skirts and with fitted jackets, where as to when she moves to Wales (SPOILER, SORRY :( ) where she and Sienna have fun by the coast in dresses and wellies as i described earlier.
