According to a report
in Vogue UK
, the film is based on Don DeLillo's novella, The Body Artist
and will be directed by Luca Guadagnino
who goes way back with the Belgian designer. Simons' created the wardrobe for Tilda Swinton
in the director's 2009 blockbuster, This Is Love
—which was up for an Oscar nomination for costume design.
It'll be fascinating to see what Simons dreams up this time, no?
