I was invited to the advance screening of Boardwalk Empire in Leicester Square – the show launches in the UK on the new Sky Atlantic HD channel. It’s set in Atlantic City during the early 20’s at the time of prohibition. The pilot cost $30 million, making it the most expensive pilot in history. I love the menswear – Steve Buscemi looks amazing! The shoes, the men’s socks, the fur coats – it’s all about details. John Dunn, the show’s costume designer uses lots of authentic pieces from rental houses in California. The background actors are dressed in original vintage pieces and often the costumes for the main actors are made from vintage fabric. It’s the early 20’s so the menswear is all about suits and the womenswear is a little less glamorous but still inspirational!
