The 50th Anniversary of the classic film "A Bout de Souffle".
Fifty years after its release, Jean-Luc Godard's revolutionary film A Bout de Souffle (Breathless) still lives up to its name. The director launched the New Wave of French cinema with this tale of small-time gangster played by Jean-Paul Belmondo and his hip American girlfriend, Jean Seberg.
To accompany the re-release of the film, the Rodarte sisters have designed a host of items, tees and signed posters, a fashion tribute to the classic film. These pieces can be found in Barneys New York, Colette Paris and Dover Street Market London.

“Those aesthetic hiccups, the way it moves along, the sheer coolness of Jean Seberg and Jean-Paul Belmondo—Breathless doesn’t feel like a movie about youth; it feels like youth itself! Godard thought he was a filmmaker, but he’s really a poet, and this work opened the breach. Freedom rushed in after that.”
—Olivier Assayas, director, Summer Hours
