‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ is everywhere, except in a theater near you. The wide-release date for the film has been pushed back several times. It has been playing at select venues around New York and L.A. since last week with plans to expand to more screens this Friday before the nationwide opening date of December 23rd. Perhaps it’s an attempt to create Oscar buzz amid the acclaim of ‘Walk the Line’ and ‘Brokeback Mountain.’ SheFinds saw the film and while the cinematography is beautiful, it was the Geisha fashion that was truly stunning.
Hot jewelry design team Me&Ro created gorgeous hair ornaments for the film. Oscar winning Costume Designer, Colleen Atwood worked closely with Me&Ro’s Robin Renzi to create the one-of-a-kind pieces. Five intricate designs consisting of a silver base with gold detailing and coral, garnet or pearl beading, function as embellished hair combs the the form of flowers. Me&Ro’s ‘flower bouquet’ in silver with gold and coral adorns the character ‘Korin’ (played by actress Eugenia Yuan) in several scenes. Expect Colleen Atwood to score another Oscar nod for her breathtaking costuming. If you want to score some of Me&Ro’s Geisha inspired designs, SheFinds has got you covered. The collection took inspiration from the story based on Arthur Golden’s novel to bring unique, delicate accessories to life. We found them at Nieman Marcus and they were pricey. But Amazon.com has the same pieces at much better prices.
