Movie mood board.
[T]he obscure colour palettes, pastel dreamscapes and delicious locations – Wes Anderon’s visuals over the years have been an endless source of inspiration. Ahead of the director’s latest film, Isle of Dogs, dropping on Friday, here’s Hunger’s edit of the very Wes style IG accounts to add to your feed…
_________________________ Campbell Apartment | New York, New York | c. 1923 • • The Campbell Apartment is a recently reopened bar and cocktail lounge located in Grand Central Terminal in New York City. The space was once the office of American financier John W. Campbell, a member of the New York Central Railroad's board of directors • • Later used for office space, as a studio by CBS Radio and as a jail by Metro-North Railroad, the space was restored to its original opulence following renovations totaling nearly $2 million in 1999 and 2007 • • Located in the southwestern corner of the Grand Central Terminal building — above the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue — It was first leased in 1923 by John Campbell from William Kissam Vanderbilt II, whose family built the Terminal • • The 3,500-square-foot space was a single room with and an enormous faux fireplace in which Campbell kept a steel safe. At that time, it was the largest ground floor space in Manhattan • • Campbell commissioned Augustus N. Allen, an architect known for designing estates on Long Island to build an opulent office, transforming the room into a 13th-century Florentine palace with a hand-painted plaster of paris ceiling and leaded windows • • The Persian carpet that took up the entire floor was said to have cost $300,000, or roughly $3.5 million today. Campbell added a piano and pipe organ, and at night turned his office into a reception hall, entertaining 50 or 60 friends who came to hear famous musicians play private recitals. He had a butler named Stackhouse • • After Campbell's death in 1957, the rug and other furnishings disappeared from his office and the space eventually became a signalman's office and later a closet at Grand Central, where the transit police stored guns and other equipment. It also became a small jail, in the area of the present-day bar • • Know more?

Day 7 | Image 2 of the @fondazioneprada #Trespass Instagram takeover by @alice.rawsthorn during Milan Design Week 2017. One of the joys of visiting Fondazione Prada is, of course, downing an espresso at Bar Luce, Wes Anderson’s inspired tribute to Milanese cafés with references to the grand vaulted glass roof of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II on the ceiling, and the shiny candy-coloured plastics of 1950s coffee bars in the furniture. As Wes Anderson put it: "While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in.
