Last week John Corbett announced he would reprise his role of ‘Aidan’ for the upcoming reboot of Sex and the City. In a new interview with Glamour, the actor has further revealed he was allowed to keep the wardrobe from his appearance between 2000 and 2003.
“I have every item I’ve ever worn on the show, down to the Calvin Klein tighty whities whenever I was in a bathroom scene with Carrie,” Corbett said. “I have the white shirt from the episode where Aidan says, “You broke my heart!” I got everything, and this was expensive stuff! The shoes that I wore were Prada and $700 and I still wear those.”
In the same piece, Corbett gushed about Patricia Field, the costume designer behind the iconic television series.
“And let me tell you a Patricia Field story: She is probably my favourite costumer and personality,” Corbett revealed. “I love them all, but she, in particular, is just a fantastic personality. If anyone has ever met her, they know exactly what I’m talking about.”
Not only did Field conceptualise Corbett’s wardrobe, she brought life to Carrie Bradshaw’s fashionable identity. Parker confirmed to Vulture in the past she too has kept nearly all of her SATC wardrobe.
“We have probably 95 percent of the clothing archived. I have it all,” Parker said. “I don’t touch it or wear it but all of that is really meaningful.”
At the weekend, Parker commented on Corbett’s return to the screen for the reboot, And Just Like That, via social media.
“I’m not saying one way or another whether our beloved Mr. Corbett’s interview deals in facts or fiction but the response is amazing to read…x,” Parker posted in an Instagram comment.
HBO has declined to comment on the news. According to a press release from HBO Max upon announcing And Just Like That, “the series will follow Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”
A release date has not been revealed. Stay tuned.
