Breakfast at Tiffany’s – the 1961 film based on Truman Capote’s 1958 novella – has become more famous for its visual shorthands, its signifiers of New York chic and fashionable femininity, than its actual story or characters.
By Truman Capote It’s the belief that only good things happen there that makes Tiffany’s so appealing to her. So why choose this as the title? The title draws attention to Holly without having to name her specifically – she’s the only one in the book who loves the store so much.

The movie “ Breakfast at Tiffany’s ” written by George Axelrod and directed by Blake Edwards came out in 1961.
