The Making of Kingsman

Visitors to Savile Row in the first weekend of October may have found the street closed and the surrounding area chock-a-block with production trucks. This was for filming of director Matthew Vaughn’s movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. Huntsman leant its services as a key location for the production, our premises proving the perfect setting.

Based on the comic books by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar, the fun and action-packed spy film stars Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Samuel L. Jackson and rising star Taron Egerton. It was fascinating to see how promptly and deftly the set designer and props team (assisted by Huntsman’s Johnny and Paul) transformed the shop and its frontage for the production before restoring it back to its original self, all within 48 hours.
