Hideout leather makes all the leathers for the stunt men and the leading lady - Rebecca Furguson for the new Mission Impossible 5 film

In the summer of 2014 Hideout Leather was approached to design and make the motorcycle suits for the latest chapter in Tom cruises’ Mission Impossible films, MI5. Traditionally the costume department would buy in or have a company product place its kit but as the bike race was to be an important part of the film, the costume designer, Johanna Johnston wanted to have the ultimate charge of how they looked. She wanted the suits to look stylish and fit beautifully, however more importantly they weren’t just for show. These leathers were to actually be used by the stunt riders racing through the streets of Morocco and inevitably they would be crashing and falling off. The suits needed to be manufactured to the highest specification to protect the riders. So Hideout a leading pioneer in the manufacture of performance safety motorcycle clothing were the natural choice. With 20 years of experience Kate Jennings their designer and co owner excitedly took up the challenge.

“ Johanna said dealing with a british based manufacturer made her job so much easier. We worked together on the designs for the suits, most of which are adaptations of our current two-piece suits. Then for Rebecca Ferguson the leading lady a sexy version of our Xtreme One-piece suit. We used the skills of BOB a local graphic designer who laser cut the back design on her suit. It took over three hours to sew just the design, but the effect is amazing. I was on call for weekly visits to the Warner Brother studios in Watford for the fittings of all the stunt guys and doubles. The whole experience was amazing, another world. It was so interesting to see the studios and and to be involved was an honour.’ Kate Jennings, designer and co owner
