Killing Eve fashion on show at Liverpool One

Liverpool One has been playing host to the many outfits of popular BBC drama Killing Eve‘s Villanelle in a temporary display showcasing the character’s original costumes.

Exhibited over five large-scale shop windows on Lord Street at Liverpool One, the display showcases the outfits and props of Jodie Comer’s character Villanelle in the city of the actress’ birth.

These include pink tulle dress from season one, the pig head and Bavarian dirndl costume for series two, the clown attire from series three and the white dress in the final series. 

Sam Perry, who led on costume design for the third and fourth series, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed designing the costumes for Killing Eve for series three and four because the clothes the characters wear, and the way their style evolves, is a visual representation of the character’s emotional journey. 

“Designing the costume for Villanelle and Eve comes with great responsibility. Phoebe De Gaye and Charlotte Mitchell did wonderful work on the first two series and I wanted to pick up on the playfulness in the characters costumes, and have fun exploring new silhouettes.”

Donna Howitt, place strategy director at Liverpool One, said: “We are delighted to host this wonderful display from BBC Creative at Liverpool One. It pays tribute to one of our most well-known artists, Jodie Comer, and the role fashion played in the series; both elements, culture and fashion, are at the heart of what Liverpool One represents as a destination.”

The Killing Eve collection display celebrating all four iconic seasons of killer fashion is on display on Lord Street at Liverpool One, L2 1TA  from 13th until 22nd of April. The full series is available to stream on iPlayer.
