Giorgio Armani styles 'The Dark Knight Rises' wardrobe

In his latest film collaboration, Giorgio Armani again brings his signature style to the character of Bruce Wayne in director Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated finale of the Dark Knight trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises” in theaters July 20th.  For the production, Giorgio Armani worked in partnership with acclaimed costume designer Lindy Hemming, who won an Academy Award for her costume designs for “Topsy-Turvy.” Mr. Armani previously created designs for Bruce Wayne in 2008’s blockbuster “The Dark Knight.”

As Batman’s alter ego Bruce Wayne, the film’s star Christian Bale wears Giorgio Armani Made to Measure suiting.  Mr. Wayne’s elegant wardrobe includes two-button notch collar suits, one in charcoal gray pinstripe and another in medium gray glen plaid, both paired with a variety of shirt and neck tie combinations.  The Made to Measure suits feature the traditional customized owner’s label, in this case, Giorgio Armani for Bruce Wayne.  In addition to Christian Bale, Giorgio Armani also outfitted co-stars Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in various Giorgio Armani silhouettes.  He also provided accessories for one of the film’s leading actresses, Anne Hathaway.

 Giorgio Armani 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.”

Costume designer Lindy Hemming said, “This is my second time working with the legendary Giorgio Armani to costume Bruce Wayne.  We had established Wayne's elegant tailored look in contrast to his iconic Batman persona and Giorgio Armani's luxury suiting continues to offer the perfect visual look for him.”

Giorgio Armani has been on the forefront of creating wardrobes for major motion pictures since he pioneered the movement by dressing Richard Gere in “American Gigolo” in 1980.  Since then, hundreds of films have incorporated designs by Giorgio Armani, including “The Untouchables,” “Gattaca,” “Stealing Beauty,” “Shaft,” “The Tuxedo,” “De-Lovely,” “Ocean’s Thirteen,” “Fair Game,” “The Social Network,” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.”
