For the film Napoleon we have made uniforms for the different armies: French, Prussian, Austrian and Russian. Each piece of costume has been specially treated by period, in order to be able to show the change of uniforms over time. To produce such a large number of period uniforms, more than 15,000 metres of wool of different colours were used, which were produced exclusively for this project. More than 90,000 buttons were used to finish the uniforms. More than 60 hand-embroidered sets were produced to recreate the elegant uniforms of generals and marshals of this period. An impressive job in which we had the invaluable expertise of our uniform specialists from the Peris Costumes headquarters in #Poznán, #HeroCollection.
On the Poor things wardrobe, costume designer Holly Waddington says “I think the hardest part was working out Bella’s wardrobe, because that needed to tell quite a big story, and needed to describe all of these different chapters of her life and of her evolution,” says Waddington, who crafted distinct sartorial identities for each stage of the film. In the beginning of the film, Bella has the mental capacity of a child and is dressed by a housemaid. “We were playing with how she would style herself in the way that maybe a five-year-old dresses up in their mother’s wardrobe,” she adds. “So the looks are all over the place.” As Bella matures, her outfits begin to better match the conventions of her surroundings.
