Hannibal S2, E12 – Tome-Wan
Costume Designer: Christopher Hargadon
As I make my way through the series and start to reconcile my notes with those on the Prop Store website, more information comes to light. Like the fact that a third Toronto tailor was hired for the show, Nino Cioppa. Whilst Nino hasn’t provided any suits for Mads Mikkelsen, (to-date) we know that for this episode he made a two piece suit and overcoat for Laurence Fishburne (Jack Crawford) plus provided the jackets for Raúl Esparza (Dr Chiltern). Nino’s other filmography includes The X-Files, 12 Monkeys (TV Series) and the movie The Shape of Water.
More about Nino
You can find out more about Nino Cioppa, one of the most important representatives of Italian custom tailoring in Toronto through his website here. It’s a shame we don’t see more of the suit and overcoat because they look great on the auction listing.
Update: I have since discovered Nino Cioppa made a custom made golden tan pow suit for Mads Mikkelsen in Ep 307.
Short and sweet this post but I thought it might be worth mentioning as it’s a discovery.
