Hannibal  S1, Ep9 – Trou Normand

Made in Canada

I’m sure I’m the last to inform you that the Costume Designer Christopher Hargadon told Esquire that Garrison Bespoke made the supplied the suits. But who supplied the silk paisley tie for Hannibal in episode 9? So I’ve buckled, done some quiet digging and Googled the heck out of it.

A quick look back

As we’ve reached episode 9 I believe we’ve started to exhaust some of the ties for Hannibal. A lot of silk paisley, the odd medallion tie and some solid ties like the gold ribbed tie below as I mentioned in the write up for episode 1.

End of a season

I have now snuck ahead with my viewings and watched the entire 1st series. Hey Anastasia is away, it’s the only opportunity I’ll have to binge a few episodes. I can say that my favourite tie, at least the one I noticed immediately is the silver and drained blood red paisley tie seen in episode 6. This is a flashback scene and to an audience who are not familiar with the source material, this is the big reveal where we find out it’s Hannibal that is the Chesapeake Ripper.

Confession of a killer

In this episode, Abigail confesses to Dr. Lecter that she knew her father was a killer and that she acted as the lure for his victims. Another big reveal in the series and for that reason I’m coining this the Reveal Tie.

It’s one of the few noticeable ties for it’s stark colours. Hannibal wears a lot of incredible paisley ties, but often in the same bunched paisley pattern. I wonder if the costume designer saves this one for important scenes especially, because it’s the most identifiable. Almost like a show piece tie. Many other brands supplied ties for production. Canali, Joseph & Feiss, Dalessandro, and Tino Cosma. I’ve yet to identify this one.

And the other tie?

In an earlier scene we see Hannibal wears a,

Geoffrey Beene brand tie, made of silver coloured silk thread with a taupe exotic paisley embroidered paisley design.

As described by the auction on Prop Store. These ties are very accessibly priced and can be picked up quite readily on eBay.
