Even though I am still in awe of how good a Spidey Andrew Garfield made I have always been and always will be a much bigger Batman fan. The spider is very witty but I’ll choose slick over wit any day of the week. And Batman’s got plenty of that.
The Dark Knight trilogy is coming to an end in about 3 days (it’s released on July 20th in the UK) and it’s doing so in style. Just as he did for the first instalment of the trilogy Giorgio Armani has collaborated with Lindy Hemmig, the film’s costume designer, to create Bruce Wayne’s wardrobe. It seems only logical when you consider Mr Armani has dressed some of the slickest, most elegant characters of the last couple of decades including Richard Gere in ‘American Gigolo’, George Clooney in ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’ or Justin Timberlake in ‘The Social Network’.
It’s fantastic how Armani has always remained true to their classic roots and yet they manage to keep their finger on the pulse of what is going on in film, music and sport. And I love the fact that every jacket designed for a character has its own unique tag – you might remember Armani also dressed Ethan Hunt in the latest ‘Mission Impossible’ movie. I am no superhero but a man can dream of having his name embroidered inside an Armani jacket. And Giorgio Armani for Iñaki Carvajal has a cool ring to it, right?
Check out ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ trailer here. Armani has also dressed Gary Oldman, Michael Kane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (!!) and even Anne Hathaway in his stylish designs for the film.
