From eccentric get-ups of Ghostbusters to the sartorial suits of Inception, Jeffrey Kurland, a movie costume designer, has cultivated a body of work that balances innocuity and vibrancy.
Bridging storytelling and fashion, the depth of his artistry is much more than lackadaisically dressing characters with common threads. In fact, he approaches each project with the same level of uniformity and tact that many fashion designer attribute to their own collections. However, in the same breath, the mechanism and outcome at which his creativity flourishes is quite different than clothiers and couturiers. We spoke with Kurland recently to talk about the process for fashioning the garments for his latest film, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, and the parallels and differences between costume and clothing design.
Watch the interview above, and be sure to watch Mission: Impossible – Fallout hitting theaters July 27.
