Mr. Saito from Inception

Mr Saito (played by Ken Watanabe) is the head of Proclus Global in the film Inception.  A rich and powerful man, Saito is originally targeted by Cobb and Arthur.  However, once Saito realizes he is in a dream, he seeks to recruit them for a job of his own.  In the opening dream sequence, Saito wears a tuxedo that combines traditional Japanese garments with more Western silhouettes.  A similar look can be achieved by using the top portion of a nagajuban or a hanjuban undergarment.  Either way, it is best to choose one with pleats or grey details to best exemplify Saito’s costuming.

Eames from Inception

Eames (played by Tom Hardy) is a member of Cobb‘s team in the film Inception.  As the forger, Eames can project the likeness of any other person and mimic their mannerisms well enough to fool loved ones in the dream realm.  In the real world, Eames is suave and teases Arthur often, though he otherwise keeps mostly to himself.  Eames wears boldly patterned shirts with relaxed fit suit separates, and he uses a red poker chip as his totem.

This guide is for her pivotal windowsill gown, a deep purple dress with heels.
