The Wes Anderson aesthetic is a thing of beauty. During the course of his career, film-maker Anderson has created a stylish world of striking colours, quirky trinkets, eccentric fashions and old school architecture. Just think of The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Royal Tennenbaums and The Darjeeling Express. And then there’s the pretty artwork for his upcoming production, The French Dispatch, which we already want to frame on our walls.
So, it’s hardly surprising that an Instagram account dedicated to real-life places that possess the Anderson aesthetic – Accidentally Wes Anderson – has over 1.3 million followers. The success of this has resulted in the account being transformed into a beautiful coffee table book, and the launch is being celebrated with an exhibition.
