10 Films to Escape the Cold

10 Films to Escape the Cold

May 2020

Author: Isaac Ross

    Films have inspired me and captured my attention in a way that no other artistic medium has. They can transport us across the world - through decades and centuries - and allow us to escape our own realities, if only for 90 minutes. The characters and the actors that play them, the places they take us, the intricate set designs, and the fanciful wardrobes and costumes have defined moments in time and created cultural movements.
Solid & Striped has always referenced different elements of the films that inspire us, and through our brand we created our own characters and narratives. What a luxury it is to work in an industry that offers us such creative liberties and allows us to suspend disbelief.
During the last few months of quarantine, I’ve taken great comfort in the assisted escapism of film. Although my next transatlantic flight might be months away, I’ve been frequently visiting places and characters that keep me warm until I can again reach the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. Below are a list of films that might stimulate your imagination and help keep you warm during these times.
