HBO Girl’s Season 2 Filming Shots

HBOGirlsSeason2 (3)

HBO Girls is in the process of filming season 2, and above are some images recently taken from a SoHo set. I’ve been harping on writer Lena Dunham’s funny relationship with “fashion” here and here. And this week the wardrobe goes outright punk rock with both Hanna and her boyfriend’s matching long john onesies the highlight outfits of the show (see that on the next page).  

In obsessing my way through various HBO Girls stuff, I came across an interview with Zosia Mamet who plays Shoshanna, the NYU college student less fully formed than her co-stars. She’s asked about her character’s fashion choices and says:

“She most definitely cares about clothing, but I don’t know if she knows what her own personal taste is. I think she’s so busy reading magazines and worrying about what the right thing to wear is all the time that she ends up dressing like an asshole. I’d be interested to know what her actual style sense is, as opposed to what she thinks it should be.”

There been a lot of reality tv since Sex & the City and we see giant doses of it in Girl. Maybe the series isn’t so much anti-fashion as it is a realistic reflection of most people’s relationship with clothes, which is to say innate style isn’t a given and sometimes the attempt to create it reveals more flaws than it hides. And I have to say, as much as I enjoyed S&TC, with its emphasis on perfectly put together outfits for each character, the way wardrobe is used in Girl’s creates a message that is far more revealing and ultimately intimate.
