Dressing da Vinci
Tom and the cast are interviewed briefly in a new video shared by EW, focusing on the Renaissance fashion for Da Vinci's Demons. Costume designer Annie Symonds offers some background to the style choices, including Leonardo's leather jacket and the designs on it. Watch the video on EW.com.
Da Vinci’s Demons may be a period drama, but costume designer Annie Symons invokes artistic license when it comes to dressing the characters for the Starz series, set in Renaissance Italy. Symons adds a ”rock and roll” edge to Leonardo’s (Tom Riley) look, and takes inspiration from contemporary fashion designers to create costumes for female characters like Lucrezia (Laura Haddock), Vanessa (Hera Hilmar), and Clarice (Lara Pulver). The designer also uses color to help establish allegiances among families and distinguish friends from foes.
