Brighton Rock out in cinemas this week was adapted from Graham Greene’s iconic 1939 novel, and charts the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager hell bent on clawing his way up through the ranks of organized crime. At the heart of the story is the anti-hero Pinkie’s relationship with Rose – an apparently innocent young waitress who stumbles on evidence linking Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing that Pinkie commits. After the murder, Pinkie seduces Rose, first in an effort to find out how much she knows and latterly to ensure she will not talk to the police.
Here at Brandish, we couldn’t help but notice the great Mod fashion through out the new film. From slim wool suits, to classic belted overcoats and trenches, its a look that we hope will make a comeback.
One brand that is doing a particularly good job of reviving the looks is Ede & Ravensroft.
Ede and Ravenscroft are the oldest tailors in London, established in 1689, they have become renowned for their use of high quality fabrics and classic cuts.
