Giorgio Armani has dressed a plethora of celebrities, and now he can add dressing a superhero to the list. The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight, will see Christian Bale wearing an array of Giorgio Armani hand made-to-measure suits whenever he plays Batman’s alter-ago, Bruce Wayne. Not that Wayne wears suits throughout the movie, he had the choice of custom made Armani single-breasted or three-button suits, single-breasted tuxedos and black wool coats.
“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,” said Armani. “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.”
This could be one of the best dressed Batmans yet, though George Clooney did play Batman for two of the films. I’m looking forward to seeing if Bale will bring some of his American Psycho froideur to the Batman role.
