Vintage Dresses

29 December 2015 interview & film tip “Legend” just a few of the cliches, which many in the “swinging sixties” think the mods and pop, hippies and the sexual revolution, mini-skirts and psychedelic patterns-which are. But the image that we have today of the revolutionary 1960s, is only one side of the Decade, sometimes only a small, revolutionary aspect, which defined the aesthetics of the time. Also the London of the sixties had a dark side: it shows the film “Legend” dealing with the Kray brothers (both brothers played by Tom Hardy), who were the rulers of organized crime in East London in the 1960s. We have spoken with costume designer of Caroline Harris on dress codes in nightclubs, coveted vintage fabrics and wide and narrow suit shapes

“Legend” Plays In The 1960s, So In A Decade, Which Was Revolutionary For The Fashion Of The 20th Century. What Fascinated You Especially As Costume Designer, Remember?

That there was a new revolution every year within this decade. The first mini skirt, the Hippie movement, the mods, the space age, the Edwardian revival-all that in only a decade.

So Speak The Cliches That We Think About In The “Swinging Sixties”-“Legend” But Has A Different, Bleaker Picture Of The Decade, Because It Plays In The Gangster Milieu.

Especially “swinging London” and his look are always model for films-that it was already by the way back in the 1960s. Therefore, people also think the whole decade would have been everywhere so. But it isn’t, of course. It’s my job, to be able to represent all the different characteristics in a movie as a costume designer.

What Have You Been Inspired Then?

I looked my old images of the East end and its nightclubs at, and of course photographs of the Kray brothers themselves. Their world doesn’t was “swinging”! She was a classic, old fashioned and also quite formal. Especially in nightclubs there were even strict dress codes: women had to wear cocktail dresses and men’s Tuxedo or suit.

You Have Fun On These Rules?

Oh yes, I love tailoring! There are so many different versions of the suit.

Suits Play A Central Role In The Costumes.

A narrow cut, the “mod” suit is always considered the essential sixties suit. But it is not so: in my research, I came across many further and wider-cut suits. For the brothers, I chose from a wide-cut jacket and a high cut pant with crease, in heavy fabrics, which felt strongly. In reg colours were dark blue and black, while Ron, who is slightly more flamboyant, even got colors and patterns. For the women in the film, I got the dresses in vintage shops and markets in London. Here at Findjobdescriptions you can get more different models and styles.

Are The Costumes Almost Exclusively Vintage, Right?

Yes, almost. However, one finds everything exactly suitable. Therefore I got also pieces from the 50’s and 70’s and then changed to. I bought a really inappropriate dress around more often, because it had a good stuff, I always wanted to have. It was seen not all vintage, for the role of Frances, reg krays woman, I made some pieces completely.

And Yet You Could Keep Still So Authentic The Look, As You Wanted It?

If it look authentic, you have to take just materials from the past – today’s are so different!

“Legend” with Tom Hardy in the (double) starring the Kray brothers will start on 7 January 2016 in German cinemas.
