Suit up

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WHAT TO WATCH - – Gor­don Kho

WILL Pres­i­dent Frank un­der­wood’s ( Kevin Spacey) House Of Cards fi­nally col­lapse in the new sea­son of the ac­claimed political drama? If you re­mem­ber, First Lady Claire ( robin Wright) walked out on him at the end of Sea­son Three ... and as we have wit­nessed, you don’t want to get on her bad side. At the start of Sea­son Four, un­der­wood goes full throt­tle on his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign – with­out the first lady by his side – as he fights off his tough­est op­po­nent, heather Dun­bar ( El­iz­a­beth Marvel). As he trav­els on the cam­paign trail, un­der­wood is at­tired in suits fit for a king, or in this case, the pres­i­dent of the most pow­er­ful na­tion in the world. Clothes not only make a man but also help Spacey get into char­ac­ter, ac­cord­ing to House Of Cards cos­tume de­signer Jo­hanna Argan. Spacey, 56, is at­tired in hugo Boss suits, and the char­ac­ter’s ini­tials, Fu, are stitched in­side ev­ery jacket. Argan put Spacey in dark suits and bright red ties in ear­lier episodes but as the sea­son pro­gresses, un­der­wood’s wardrobe changes to re­flect the sto­ry­line. “The pres­i­dent at his best is fully suited. But as he starts to fall apart, we strip away jack­ets, we strip away ties, we get dull in colour,” Argan tells

House Of Cards Sea­son Four airs ev­ery tues­day at 9.55pm on rtL CBS En­ter­tain­ment ( Hyp­ptV Ch 616).
