謝霆鋒與金馬

近期上畫的《怒火》是已故陳木勝導演的遺作。自十九歲已跟陳導演合作,亦是主角之一的謝霆鋒解釋說,他近年專注在飲食事業方面是因為一直等待著一套真正的香港動作片。據悉整套《怒火》不管是演員或場地,也是近乎100%本土。

金馬一直有為謝先生做過不少電影戲服,但這兩件猄皮背心是由他個人的形象設計師為他訂製的。當時身處中國大陸的他們大可在國內找裁縫師傅,對百分百「香港製造」欣賞及信任的他們選擇了金馬,金馬當然在特定的短時間內順利完成任務。

與港式動作片一樣,人手製作皮褸這工業也大不如前,失去了舊日的輝煌,也欠新一代年輕人去接棒。

金馬為了承傳及革新,近年作出不少改變。2021是金馬實習生的第三屆了,盼望匠人及實習生繼續能互相學習,互補不足;亦籍此回饋社會。

對人手製作皮褸有興趣的你們,隨時可以聯絡金馬。其實每一位客人,也是金馬故事的一部份;金馬亦好希望聆聽你們做每一件皮褸背後的故事。 The recent film, Raging Fire (Nou Fo) is the work of the deceased Mr. Benny Chan. Benny and one of the main characters Nicholas Tse, have previously collaborated on many a film. Nicholas explains that in recent years he has been paying attention to his career on cooking talent, because he has been waiting for a true Hong Kong action film to star in. As we understand it, the entire Raging Fire is almost 100% locally produced, from the actors to the scenes.

Kam Ma has provided many costumes as part of Nicholas’s acting career, but these two suede vests were ordered by him and his personal stylist. At the time, they were situated in Mainland China with many options for tailors, but they chose Kam Ma as they believed in the 100% “Made in Hong Kong” label. Kam Ma was able to complete the two vests in a short period of time.

Similar to Hong Kong action movies, handcrafted leather garments have changed drastically for the worse, having fallen off from its peak a long time ago and with no next generation to carry on the torch. In order to find new successors, Kam Ma has undergone many changes: 2021 is Kam Ma’s third year of offering internships, hoping that through this process both Kam Ma and the interns can learn from one another; and thus contribute to society.

For those interested in handcrafted leather jackets, please feel free to further enquire with Kam Ma! Every customer is part of Kam Ma’s story, and we wish to hear the story behind your jackets.
