Important news, for those hoping to capture the James Bond image, in time for the October 23rd premiere of ‘Skyfall’.
Fresh leaks have revealed images of Hollywood megastar Daniel Craig wearing a pair of Tom Ford TF144 Marko frames on set, during production. These images have confirmed long-standing rumours that Bond’s relationship with Ford would carry over from the ‘Quantum of Solace’ movie.
Speaking in a recent behind-the-scenes video, ‘Skyfall’ costume designer Jany Temime explained the thought-process behind the Bond look.
“James Bond is such an iconic figure that you have to respect a certain style – an English gentleman perfectly dressed up.”
With that being said, Craig’s presentation in ‘Skyfall’ will not, 100%, fit the Bond archetype. Temime has been the catalyst behind a subtle evolution, with the classic film series now reaching the age of 50-years-young.
“Sometimes doing a lot of difficult stunts with beautiful, glamorous women in exotic locations. That’s what’s expected to be seen, so you have to give a new look to a very successful image. They wanted suits that were very near his body. Very supple suits that moved with him.
I wanted to give the whole look a little edge because, although his suits are tailored and they are handmade, he should wear them with a little 2012 touch.”
If the leaked images are anything to go by, the bold edge of Ford’s uniquely tailored suit style will be reflected by Bond’s choice of eyewear. A suited and booted 007 is set to traverse a contemporary story world, carrying an air of indestructibility, with metallic silver and royal blue shades being predominant colour-themes throughout the motion picture.
Needless to say, ‘Skyfall’ is set to be one of the biggest box office smashes of the year. Once the film hits the big screen, sales of Tom Ford fashion items are sure to boom, which will turn the TF144 Marko and its sister ranges into gold-dust.
