New images reveal OUTLANDER’s staggering Season 2 look!
With all the action, romance, and drama on Outlander, you may not have noticed just how stellar the costumes were for the show. However, a preview of the Season 2 look guarantees that you’ll notice in 2016!
Outlander‘s second season will see the daring Jamie and Claire Fraser heading from Scotland to France in an attempt to stop the Bonnie Prince Charlie and the failed Jacobite Rising that, for all intents and purposes, cinched the destruction of the Highland culture. And while Scottish fashion was not important at the time, luxorious fashion was king in the French royal courts. As such, Jamie and Clarie getting their style on to blend in, as evidenced by this image from Entertainment Weekly!
Genius costume designer Terry Dresbach talked to the magazine about the insane amount of work that went into replicating the fashion of the era:
“It’s a massive season. We figured out recently that we’ve made over 10,000 items for season 2 and acquired another 5,000 shoes. Knowing that was in front of us … it was a monumental task. We started thinking about it halfway through season 1. It’s a completely different kind of clothing. In Scotland, there is not a ton of research out there about what they wore. It was a rough place. But France [in the 18th century]was one of the most well-documented periods of fashion in the world, so you better get it right. There is no wiggle room. Everything has to be sumptuous and lavish and every inch is beaded and embroidered. This is why I came back into the business to do this show. Getting to do 18th century French court is a designer’s dream. It’s fabulous.”
