Lola’s (Cate Blanchett) grey skirt suit from Sally Potter’s 2000 drama, The Man Who Cried.
A Russian Jewish girl (Christina Ricci) is separated from her father in 1927 and escapes to England, where she's rechristened Suzie. She grows up to be a singer in a Parisian theater populated by a Russian dancer (Cate Blanchett), an Italian tenor (John Turturro) and a Gypsy horseman (Johnny Depp). When the Nazis invade France, Suzie's life is suddenly in danger, and she attempts to flee to the United States.
Lola wears her grey skirt suit in the apartment that she and Suzie share while they talk about Dante (Tuturro). The suit consists of a jacket and skirt. The jacket features an ‘Angels & Bermans’ costumiers label which has ‘The Man Who Cried Cate Blanchett 2 Piece Suit’ handwritten on it. Both pieces have handwritten labels from the Bonhams auction the costume was originally sold in. As the costume was made specially for Blanchett in the role it has no size labelling.
The costume has some very minor wear from production use, but considering the age of the piece it remains in an excellent condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Ferrous Metals.
