Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Mr Porter
For all fans of British spy movies, this September sees the release of Kingsman: The Golden Circle the follow up to the successful British spy thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service movie starring Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Julianne Moore.
Working with director Matthew Vaughn known for Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and Layer Cake and fashion stylist Arianne Phillips famous for dressing Madonna and Justin Timberlake, Mr Porter, our favourite menswear online store has developed a menswear line that features throughout the movie in a ‘film costume to collection’ project.
“After watching Risky Business as a teenager all I wanted was a pair of Wayfarer sunglasses - then Top Gun came along and it had to be the Aviators. The power of film to set trends is immense and Kingsman was the perfect opportunity to create my own label inspired by a movie. But it could only work if I had the right partner to help launch the Kingsman collection, and Mr Porter was the obvious choice.” Said Matthew Vaughn, Director.
The traditional velvet smoking jacket is updated in a non-traditional orange and western shirts which feature in the movie are made in collaboration with bespoke shirt maker Turnbull and Asser. Other highlights include double breasted tailoring and outwear ideal for all those who want to add a touch of luxury to their wardrobes this autumn.
A more casual style of fashion has been adopted alongside the impeccable Kingsman tailoring. The original movie saw the film inspired by Savile Row and a more traditional way of dressing this time though the movie is set in the US with new characters, a new adventure and a new sense of direction.
The partnership between fashion and film is decades old and one that shows no signs of slowing down. As with another famous British secret service agent style and aesthetics are just as integral to this films success and you won’t see another film quite this smart this autumn.
