In his latest film collaboration, Giorgio Armani has brought his signature style to the character of Bruce Wayne in director Christopher Nolan's much-anticipated action drama The Dark Knight.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.

Giorgio Armani said, “As a Giorgio Armani Hand Made-to-Measure client, Bruce Wayne is demonstrating his status as a discriminating and sophisticated connoisseur of fine fashion, while also showing he has individual taste. It is also fitting that I should be dressing a superhero this year, as I am pleased to have chaired the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition, Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, last May.”

As Batman's alter ego Bruce Wayne,The Dark Knight star Christian Bale wears Giorgio Armani Hand Made-to-Measure. A still from the film featuring Bruce Wayne in a suit from this collection is the visual for a world-wide Giorgio Armani advertising campaign coinciding with the release of the film. Mr. Wayne's elegant wardrobe includes single-breasted, three-button suits in a variety of fabrics, single-breasted tuxedos, and black wool coats, each featuring the traditional customized owner's label—in this case, Giorgio Armani for Bruce Wayne.

Costume designer Lindy Hemming said, “For the character Bruce Wayne, Chris Nolan and I wanted an expensively elegant tailored look, to contrast with his Batman persona. We felt that the Giorgio Armani brand was emblematic of the contemporary classic look that I hoped to create. I think Christian looks edgy and cool, and I feel that their tailoring beautifully realized our vision.”
