The Story of the 'Ocean's Eleven' costumes

Oceans Eleven

In this week's Academy Originals we learn from costume designer Jeffrey Kurland what was his process of creating the costumes for the George Clooney / Brad Pitt remake of the Rat Pack heist film.

"Everything in the film was designed for each character and made for each character. Every suit, every shirt, almost every tie. The palette was their own but it also had to meld together so that it made sense. So that it looked like a group that was meant to be together," Kurland explained.
