House of Nutter: The Rebel Tailor of Savile Row
House of Nutter aims to capture and explore the Nutter sensibility. It will chart the dramatic life of Tommy Nutter, an underappreciated visionary whose career spanned barely 23 years, ending in 1992 with his untimely death. It is a history of London during an era of economic and cultural upheaval, a celebration of the methods and traditions of Savile Row; and an elegy for what was lost during the worst days of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The impact of Nutter's 'fashionable tailoring' should not be underestimated. It can still be seen today with Tom Ford and Stella McCartney, Timothy Everest and Oswald Boateng--all of whom who cite Nutter as a major influence on their work.
With archival access to photos, letters and interviews from Tommy Nutter's sole living relative, his brother, David, Lance Richardson takes us behind the '70s glamour to explore the public face and dramatic private life of one of Britain's most respected yet rule-breaking bespoke clothiers and the celebrities he dressed.
