One of two films on which Lagerfeld, then in the midst of his tenure at Chanel, designed costumes for the famously décor- and costume-obsessive Almodóvar, High Heels features Marisa Paredas as an aging singer returning home in an attempt to mend bridges with her estranged television newscaster daughter Victoria Abril, a process complicated when the man who both women happen to have loved turns up dead. From the introduction of Paredas modeling a classic Chanel-inspired look to the almost fetishistic recurrence of the interlocked double Cs logo, Almodóvar’s ’40s “women’s picture” pastiche doubles as a loving homage to French haute couture.
