Summer's Most Stylish Movie
As far as remakes go, you can't get better than Guy Ritchie's new film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. A re-imagining of the cult 1960s TV series, it's one of the best looking movies to hit screens this year. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, an American CIA agent (played by Henry Cavill) and a Russian KGB operative (played by Armie Hammer) are forced to team up on an unusual joint mission to take down an international criminal organization. There's plenty of action and a few femme fatales mixed with a dash of biting humor. But the real kicker? Those clothes. Costume designer Joanna Johnston, whose extensive film credits include such period pieces as Forrest Gump and Lincoln, was looking to men from that era—Steve McQueen, Alain Delon and Sean Connery—for inspiration. Guys that she says were "brilliantly cool, sexy beasts in very nice clothes." Johnston referenced McQueen in The Thomas Crown Affair for Cavill's look and for Hammer, went for more of a Jean-Paul Belmondo in Breathless vibe. Have a look for yourself and if you're wanting to add some spy style to your wardrobe, we've rounded up a few pieces that pull from the film's sharpest looks.
