We can't BELIEVE it's been nearly four years since The Dark Knight hit theaters (time is flying, y'all!), but now we're anticipating the third and final *sniff sniff* installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises, more than ever. And what's the best way to get amped up for a film that we are sososo excited for? By discussing all things fashion, obvs! We got the scoop, and it turns out Giorgio Armani partnered up with acclaimed costume designer Lindy Hemming (her laundry list resume includes Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Casino Royal, just to name a few) to create custom Made to Measure suiting under the Giorgio Armani for Bruce Wayne label. Oh la la!
Bruce Wayne's (played by Christian Bale) wardrobe will include two suits—a charcoal gray pinstripe number and a gray plaid ensemble. Both suits will be paired with endless elegant shirt and tie combinations, and judging by that salmon pink tie above, it looks like we're in for QUITE an eye candy treat. Giorgio and Lindy also created outfits for co-stars Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt—plus, he even accessorized Ms. Anne Hathaway for the film as well! *high five* The is the second time the duo has created ensembles for the Batman series, and Giorgio said, “In the lexicon of super heroes, it’s an honor to be associated with such an intriguing character as Bruce Wayne. It’s a privilege that the role again partners me with the talented Lindy Hemming, to create another classic look that projects strength and consistency in Wayne’s edgy, mysterious world. To be involved with the design process for a tremendous talent like Christian Bale is a rewarding experience. I’m thrilled to play a small role in the Dark Knight legacy.” Welp, we know WE'LL be first in line at the theater this Friday to see this movie! Tell us—are you looking forward to seeing Giorgio Armani's pieces in the film?
