Designer Tom Ford
is back on costume duty for the latest James Bond movie Skyfall.
Tom Ford was behind Daniel Craig’s look as Agent 007 in Quantum of Solace
at Craig’s request. Tom Ford is supplying the suits, shirts, ties, footwear and even sunglasses for 007 in this, his 23rd big screen adventure.
Ford, 50, is the former creative director of Italian fashion label Gucci and french fashion label Yves Saint Laurent. He is currently the head of his own brand, designing menswear, womenswear, eyewear and beauty collections.
“I couldn’t be happier to be dressing Daniel Craig again,” says Ford. “James Bond epitomises the Tom Ford main in his elegance, style and love of luxury. I am thrilled to move forward with this iconic character.”
New stills from the movie have recently been released and it looks like we in for a very fashionable adventure. All the suits were handmade in Italy:
The suit pictured above is charcoal serge with a closely-spaced light blue rope-stripe. The jacket has a padded shoulders and a 3-button front, with narrow lapels that roll gently over the top button. The cuffs also have 3 buttons, with the last button left open, flapped pockets and a single vent. Though it has a very fashionable fit, the outfit overall is very traditional.
The pale blue poplin shirt is also from Tom Ford and features a tab collar. Tom Ford’s tab collars fasten with a stud rather than the more common button or snap fastening. The tab collar frames the tie knot and the tie is a grey neat pattern in something similar to a houndstooth check.
The movie will be released 26 October 2012 and Tom Ford will be making Daniel Craig’s stylish clothing, as seen in the new film available to purchase in his autumn/winter collection.
James Bond has always been a style icon and getting his perfectly tailored look is as straightforward as slipping on a perfectly pressed white dress shirt and adding a thin black tie for more formal occasions.
James Bond’s suits are always perfectly tailored. I can never say it enough but Fit is King
