Tommy Nutter, the Savile Row iconoclast who dressed dandies ranging from Mick Jagger (and his bride Bianca) to the Joker (as played by Jack Nicholson in Batman), is finally getting his due. His subversive clothing—marked by bold patterns, huge lapels and flared trousers—is the subject of a retrospective at South London’s Fashion and Textile Museum, which runs through October 22.
“Tommy Nutter—Rebel on the Row” examines the look the late Nutter developed with tailor Edward Sexton after they opened their shop, Nutter’s of Savile Row, in 1969. In the years that followed, Nutter dressed such Sixties and Seventies icons as Ringo Starr, Elton John, Charlie Watts and Twiggy as well as the Jaggers, whose famous white wedding suits are spotlighted in the exhibition. The show also recreates Nutter’s store—complete with the shop’s original, ornate wooden door—which unlike most Savile Row tailors allowed passersby to peer in through an expansive glass window.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
