- THE DARK KNIGHT RISES ON TOP WITH FASHION

The Dark Knight Rises costume designer Lindy Hemming has been chatting up her approach to dressing Bruce Wayne and the villainous Bane in Christopher Nolan's upcoming finale to the Batman universe.
"Bane was meant to look like a cross between a dictator and a revolutionary," Hemming said in an interview with GQ Magazine.
"I designed the coat myself - it took a year. We took inspiration from a Swedish army jacket and a French Revolution frock coat and amalgamated the two," said Hemming. "It was a pain to have made, because in LA shearling is not their sort of thing: there weren't the tailors who could work with the fabric. It's funny: as soon as it was finished, GQ did a feature about shearling coats, so it looked like I had copied you!"

As for the Dark Knight himself, Hemming said, "Christian Bale was in Armani in the last film and I used Armani again for character reasons. Bruce Wayne is himself playing a part: that of a wealthy man who owns an enormous company and so a luxury brand like Armani seemed the right choice."
