Netflix’s Kaos: Innovation and magic in the costumes of modern mythology

Netflix has unveiled the first images of Kaos, a series that reinterprets Greek and Roman mythology from a modern, satirical perspective. The series, created by Charlie Covell not only promises a provocative and entertaining narrative, but also stands out for its impressive costume design by costume designer Rebeca Hale.

Kaos explores complex themes such as gender politics, power and life in the underworld, all with an irreverent touch and full of dark humor. This unique approach requires costuming that not only reflects the majesty of the mythical characters, but also infuses a contemporary and accessible feel for modern audiences.

Jeff Goldblum leads the cast as Zeus, an arrogant, insecure and manipulative god. Alongside him, iconic characters such as Hades, Poseidon, Aphrodite and Dionysus come to life in a world that blends the ancient with the modern. The costumes of each character not only stand out for their stunning aesthetics, but also play a crucial role in the narrative, reflecting their complex personalities and inner conflicts.

Costume designer Rebeca Hale has captured the essence of each deity and mythical figure, creating costumes that fuse classical elements with contemporary touches. From the majestic robes of the gods to the darker, more mystical attire of the underworld, the costumes in Kaos are a testament to the transformative power of fashion on screen.D We highlight the set design work that the series team has done in our facilities.
