"Call Me By Your Name," the 2017 movie by Luca Guadagnino, is not what I would describe as a "fashion film." That's not to say the fashion is bad by any means. Oliver, the jaunty American student played by Armie Hammer, makes me want to campaign for all my dude friends to start wearing short-shorts and billowy button-ups, and I would low-key steal the entire look that Elio, the teenage protagonist portrayed by Timothée Chalamet, wears in the final gut-wrenching scene. The fact that costume designer Giulia Piersanti is a Céline knitwear designer by day gives the movie more fashion cred, too.

But ultimately, the clothing is not what anyone is going to remember most about this movie. So I'm not entirely clear why Yoox, a site that I associate mostly with designer clothing, just launched limited-edition copies of the book that inspired the film, signed by the book author and film director. But do you know what? At the moment, I don't really care! Nor do I care that the book is a whopping $108 dollars and I am more of a find-a-discarded-book-on-the-side-of-the-road kind of girl! What I do care about is the fact that there exists a book version of a film that I can't stop thinking about, and I haven't read it yet. Until I have that box ticked off my list, you'll find me here, salivating over luxury-priced non-fashion books being sold on fashion websites.
