Costume Designer Lindy Hemming Talks Crafting Bane’s Look

Bane Costume

With punk rock-inspired Joker threads and two batsuits under her belt, Academy Award-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming returns for her third Nolan collaboration with a unique challenge: Bane. Though Bane’s look hasn’t garnered quite the same level of controversy as his Vader-esque voice, his appearance is perhaps one of the most divergent from past portrayals. Speaking to GQ Magazine, Hemming explained her intentions and inspirations for Bane’s outfit:

Bane was meant to look like a cross between a dictator and a revolutionary,” Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming told us. “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. 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.
