Coronet Inside Out: Antony Buonomo & John Pearse
Tailor and cineaste John Pearse returns to Coronet Inside Out with designer Antony Buonomo, sharing their short film I’m A Tailor.
I’m A Tailor
Filmed on one day in early September 2020, with pandemic restrictions, and edited during lockdown, this is an affectionate portrait of John Pearse, London’s funkiest tailor for over 30 years, by Antony Buonomo, Emmy-winning designer.
John was co-founder of the legendary 60s boutique ‘Granny Takes a Trip’ – and is now a style fixture of London’s most interesting patch, Soho.
John has dressed, impeccably and elegantly, some of the worlds most famous and beautiful people from Jack Nicholson to Mick Jagger to Leonardo DiCaprio.
As John says in the film, he is still surviving, dispensing style and wisdom to anyone that walks through his door.
Antony has known John, and Dominique, John’s assistant, for 25 years as a client and always knew there was a film in there somewhere… John just needed to be persuaded.
Using a freewheeling editing style and using footage from some of Johns films, the film attempts to capture some of John’s mischievous and elegant style.
