Announcements of the film’s entire cast and crew have yet to be made, but according to costume designer Jany Temime — who handled the wardrobe for “Spectre” and “Skyfall” — Craig takes a very hands-on approach when it comes to his on-screen looks.
“He loves clothes, he knows about clothes and he knows what’s good for the part,” explains the designer from her native France. “He knows exactly what James Bond will wear and why.”
Temime notes how the British actor’s chiseled physique lends itself to the role and designed suits in partnership with Tom Ford that accented his athletic form. “I wanted something a little bit near to the body — something slim — because I wanted to show how active he is,” she continues. “I went to Tom Ford and they did exactly what I wanted. I think it’s very good for Bond because you see him moving. When he was running you could see the muscles under the trousers.”
With “Quantum of Solace” in 2008, Tom Ford replaced Brioni in outfitting the fictional MI6 agent and last year the American designer unveiled a capsule collection of slim-fit suits and tuxedos inspired by the film franchise.
“He has excellent ideas [for the wardrobe] because he feels the part,” adds Temime. “If I have the chance of being chosen [for ‘Bond 25’] I will keep the same silhouette, but I will certainly bring an evolution.”
