For HBO Sessions part 2, Clothes on Film editor Chris Laverty was invited to discuss the period clothing of Boardwalk Empire. Not difficult to wax lyrical about costume designers John Dunn and Lisa Padovani’s authentic and readable work on the show, especially when said video is shot in a speakeasy style bar and a prohibition cocktail master class is included.
Check out the new HBO Sessions below, and if you have not already seen Boardwalk Empire season 1, order a copy pronto. It’s unmissable television:
We have plenty of Boardwalk Empire articles at Clothes on Film focusing mainly on season 1, so do have a rummage in the archive. As for season 2, watch this space. In the meantime read what John Dunn and Lisa Padovani have to say about Nucky and co’s costume development for 1921/22.
Boardwalk Empire is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 9th January.
