The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated Io Sono L'Amore (I Am Love) for an Oscar in the category of Best Costume Design. The looks for Tilda Swinton's character, Emma Recchi, in the film—by and large, shift dresses, tailored coats, and clean-line shirts—were designed and developed specially by Raf Simons for Jil Sander and commissioned by costume designer Antonella Cannarozzi.

"Emma Recchi?’s wardrobe for the movie epitomizes the Jil Sander values, combining a refined simplicity with superior materials and understated luxury," says the release. The looks captured her character's "bourgeois yet modern sophistication."
