Vintage-inspired lingerie brand What Katie Did has created replica 1950s intimates for the film My Week With Marilyn, which stars Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe and is due for release in the UK next month.
What Katie Did created replicas of original vintage lingerie for the film, recreating iconic 1950s intimate apparel styles such as the spiral stitch, bullet bras and body-shaping corselettes.
The movie, which dramatises the adventures of a film production assistant who escapes with Monroe for a week in the English countryside during the filming of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl, was filmed at Pinewood Studios close to What Katie Did’s head office just outside Reading.
My Week with Marilyn depicts the clash of Hollywood with England, something that is close to the heart of the What Katie Did brand, which now has two standalone stores – one in London and one in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
