Happy Clothes: A Film About Patricia Field

Patricia Field, the costume designer who crafted the looks for “Sex and the City” and “The Devil Wears Prada,” shares her life story and explains why it’s crucial to have fun when choosing what to wear.

They say clothes don’t make the man, but in TV shows, it’s the opposite. Carrie wouldn’t be the same without her rain-splattered tutu, Ugly Betty wouldn’t have worn those glasses, Emily would stroll through Paris without her beret. In other words: everything would be much more dull. Stylists bring characters to life and, among all contemporary costume designers, there’s one we adore: Patricia Field. “Murphy Brown,” “Sex and the City,” “Emily in Paris,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “And Just Like That” bear her hallmark: extravagance, smart mixes, postmodernity, humor, an encyclopedic knowledge of couture and street fashion. And always fun. Kim Cattrall, Lily Collins, Sarah Jessica Parker, among many others, talk about her.
