Rocketman, directed by Matthew Vaughn of Kingsman franchise fame, recounts the rise to acclaim of Sir Elton John. Richard Madden (rest in peace, Robb Stark) plays John Reid — Elton's lover and manager — opposite Taron Egerton's pop legend, and boy, does their turbulent onscreen partnership illustrate that opposites attract; John and Reid could not be more sartorially opposed, with the former's flamboyance clashing with the latter's more sedate style.

As John's fashion sense enjoys newfound relevance in the year of camp, Reid is also getting his dues with the Rocketman by Kingsman capsule collection (launching this week on Mr Porter) with double-breasted suit jackets, velvet, and paisley aplenty nodding to the film's '70s chapters.
