DESIGNING BOND'S LOOK
In conjunction with the Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibit at Barbican, this excellent web documentary takes a look at James Bond's suits over the history of the franchise. They speak with David Mason of Anthony Sinclair about how Sean Connery's image was first developed for Dr No. Then costume designer and guest curator, Lindy Hemmings, and Ritchie Charton of Douglas Hayward discuss the fashionable tailoring of Roger Moore, the British look, and how designers brought Bond into the contemporary world. Whatever the era, Bond is dressed to kill. Take a look!
