Last year’s award-winning blockbuster The Artist paved the way for a 1920’s fashion revival. Set in the late 20s and early 30s during the golden era of classic men’s style, the film nods back to the black and white silent film genre.
When it comes to men’s fashion in The Artist, the film’s costume designers have obviously stayed true to the era and dressed the characters in tuxedos and tailcoats. Lead character George Valentin is mainly seen kitted out in period eveningwear that has us wanting to reach for a traditional tux and bow tie when heading to our next formal event. This film is an absolute must-see for every sartorial squire.
