“Mad Men” is back for its 6th season and everyone is talking about the new looks for several key characters. The debut takes place over New Year’s 1967, so expect a season of late-60s fabulousness.
The Cut has a fun interview and slideshow with costume designer Janie Bryant, who weighs in with some character insight.
My favorite Bryant comment describing hirsute scene stealer Harry Crane: “I always loved his transformation from season one and season two, when he was in short sleeves and bow ties, to becoming Mr. Hollywood. He’s kind of douchey. I always think of his character as a wannabe, and so he’s easily influenced by fashion trends.”
And there’s much, much more on AMC’s website, which includes a video with Bryant discussing what’s in several characters’ closets this season.
Bryant dishes on the Mod-print dress Megan Draper wears on the beach in Hawaii—found at “one of my favorite vintage stores in Los Angeles.” (Sadly, she does not say which store.)
