Kingsman: The Golden Circle - Style Break Down
There is a strange but attractive relationship between men's fashion and the cinema. Since the middle of the twentieth century, several characters from the big screen have influenced the cabinets of men in each of the different decades. The highly anticipated Kingsman: The Golden Circle by Matthew Vaughn, innovates a model of placements of men’s suiting and accessories in cinema.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the second film by Matthew Vaughn dealing with the British secret service. From the orange velvet tuxedo to the traditional tennis striped suits, the perfect panoply of the MI6 agent which is already available on the e-shops. The same fabrics play a preponderant role in the development of events. Matthew Vaughn mentioned in an interview that he wanted the costumes to play a fundamental role in the story, which was not only an extra addition but worked in a relevant way in the framework of the film.
This, of course, makes the idea of acquiring some of the pieces of the work more interesting. The costume designer, Arianne Phillips has also mentioned that she is very excited that her work has been so prominent in the promotion and plot of the film. A secret agent worthy of the name must go on a mission with style. Whether you feel like Galahad (Colin Firth), Eggsy (Taron Egerton), Merlin (Mark Strong) or Tequila (Channing Tatum), you know we cannot easily save the world without a minimum of STYLE!
Colin Firth (Harry Hart)
In the first film about a group of secret spies known as Kingsman, we learned that they are well dressed and groomed. Three years after the great success of Kingsman: secret service, a sequel arrives with Taron Egerton getting back into the skin of Eggsy, accompanied by an amicable hero of Kingsman, Colin Firth after his character was presumed dead in the first part.
If there is one thing that Matthew Vaughn always knew, it was that his secret agent had to move around in elegance with as much style as the character demands.
Colin Firth has always been one of the most elegant men in the cinema, but now he has a great companion. Taron Egerton posits as a stylish man to follow, on and off the screen. Both guys were looking superb in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Indeed, Colin Firth is the classic seducer who projects to be an interesting man, who maintains sobriety as part of his job. All credit goes to Arianne Phillips whose conventional attire can transcend its simplicity to the physical characteristics of the wearer.
Taron Egerton (Eggsy)
Eggsy’s look in Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a bit of a hymn to good manners and well-cut costumes. The British class, what's more mythical, from rusty orange coat to leather boots. Although his role in the British espionage relies on some of the most fashionable costumes of recent cinema, Taron also knows how to turn out very well off the canvas.
As for Taron's personal evolution as Eggsy, Matthew Vaughn was inspired by one of his favorite films, Star Wars. The director explains: "For me, Luke Skywalker is the best example of the successful evolution of a popular hero on several films, and I tried to do the same with Kingsman: The Golden Circle."
Taron Egerton and his high-end clothing for the big screen are taking over the fashion magazines and blogs at this moment, while the advertising machinery of the Kingsman the Golden Circle is accelerating at turbo speed. Taron Egerton has given the character the modern and impeccable glamor he needed, including the orange tuxedo jacket that the spy had not worn before. His appearance is a guarantee of success, with great attention to sizes, cuts, and measures. But it is not just in suits and ties that the boy lives.
Julianne Moore (Poppy)
The director Matthew Vaughn wanted for Poppy (the villain incarnated by Julianne Moore) a woman's look of good American society, very classic and at the same time timeless. The “bad” is Julianne Moore, who gets into the skin of the new villain Poppy Adams, owner of the mysterious criminal company that gives the title to the Golden Circle.
Matthew wanted her to have colorful outfits, and Poppy's favorite color is red. Poppy has a very American optimism, and a friendly attitude, as nasty and malicious as she is, she is friendly and smiling and her outfits reflect this contrast.
Pedro Pascal (Whisky)
Dressed in a black suit jacket in contrast to the light blue shirt and no tie, Pascal is genuinely surprised by the stir he causes among women. There is a different style in each of the 'looks' of Pascal, but he always seems himself and this is important that all gentlemen take it into account. There are many casual 'looks' in the movie. Regardless of how Pascal dressed, his confidence and self-control reflected.
Channing Tatum (Tequila)
Undoubtedly, The Golden Circle has managed to become one of the successes of autumn. Largely by Taron Egerton and Colin Firth who return to the saga with hard blows. However, what drew a lot of attention were the new signings for the sequel, including Channing Tatum. The actor of Magic Mike was one of the star signings.
Originally, the role of Channing Tatum (Tequila) was to have the bow as a special weapon, giving an authentic image of the Midwestern agent of the United States. However, the tie passed to Whiskey, the character played by Pedro Pascal. Tatum is also seen dressed as the elegant undercover agent. Costume, hat, glasses, umbrella and all the characteristic elements of the film.
The Right Accessories
To become a gentleman worthy of the name, you also need a pair of Oxfords. And of course, you have to choose them plain and non-perforated, according to the code used at the beginning of the movie "Kingsman: The Secret Service." Indeed, plain brogues are reserved for the most formal occasions (receptions or galas), while the perforated brogues are a little more casual.
Matthew Vaughn and costume designer Arianne Phillips gave birth to the official film-inspired collection, where we find the clothes and accessories worn by Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, Halle Barry, and Mark Strong. The focus of the collection is centered in Britain with traditional inspirational dresses, and there is no lack of collaboration with British classical brands.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle fulfills the stereotype of a hypertrophied sequel that gathers the goodness of its predecessor and exploits them with greater budgets. The sequel has things much crazier than the previous one and the lovers of the first film will not be disappointed at all. These characteristics, with some small signs of novelty in terms of characters, are the hallmarks of a sequel that knows how to maintain the level of Kingsman: The Secret Service and exploit its virtues.
