Dan Radcliffe's Harry Potter Character to Wear Belstaff Couture

New York Magazine is reporting today actor Dan Radcliffe will be sporting some nice attire in his role of Harry Potter in an upcoming Potter film. The magazine (via WWD) reports that "Harry Potter is going high fashion. Belstaff is designing the wizard costume for Daniel Radcliffe for the next Harry Potter film. Because even fictional caped wizards need to be well dressed."

It is unclear if the clothing is for Half-Blood Prince, possibly for Slughorn's party scene or for use in Deathly Hallows. Belstaff has done costumes for many major motion pictures in the past, including the recent Indiana Jones, Oceans Thirteen, Sweeney Todd, and provided clothes for stylish lead actor Christian Bale in the Batman film series.

Dan already wears Belstaff. The leather jacket he’s been wearing in New York is Belstaff

Something about this really bothers me! Decking out Dan Radcliffe is one thing, but Harry Potter? Come on! They can’t be seriously considering this. This smacks of blatant commercialism! Harry is no fashion plate in the books! But then,(sigh), why should I be surprised; rampant greed seems as pervasive as ever! But this just doesn’t feel right to me.

Maybe in the DH movie it would be for the wedding scene?

My guess is that it’s for the DH wedding scene. I don’t think it’s really a big deal — Belstaff is just designing a costume, I don’t think they’re turning Harry into a fashionista.

It could also possibly be for Dumbledore’s funeral

I mean, I doubt Harry’s is just gonna wear some random shirt for the funeral of his mentor

Harry’s got, money. Remember that big pile in movie one? Let him indulge.

There are several scenes in the book where Harry has to be well dressed, some of you just mentioned some of them for example, so those other of you who want to try to use canon to bash this are hopeless. ;)
I think this is quite cool, the clothes they designed for Sweeney Tood are great, so if they do the same good job for HP, that will be great. :)

Excuse me? When has Harry ever bought anything of high fashion? When has Hermione? I mean can anyone see them walking into a fashion shop and spending hundreds? Especially as Hermy is against such slave labour of most fashion labels.

Well, seeing as how Dumbledore’s funeral AND the wedding scene in DH are being left out of the films, I’m putting my money on Slughorn’s party. That way Ginny can drool – squee!

Not sure how they are going to pull off the Harry/Hermione LocketCrux scene, maybe they are both dressed up in it as part of taunting Ron’s poorness?
