BACK FOR BOND: Tom Ford will be suiting up James Bond for the upcoming film “Spectre,” which will be released internationally on Oct. 26. The movie, produced by Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli for EON Productions and directed by Sam Mendes, again stars Daniel Craig as 007.
This is the third film that Ford has dressed the 007 franchise which includes “Skyfall” and “Quantum of Solace.” Ford worked with costume designer Jany Temime on six bespoke tailored looks for the character including eveningwear, suits, shirts, knitwear, ties, accessories and exclusive eyewear — all handmade from Italy.
Looks include a black gabardine coat, a striped two-piece Windsor suit, an O’Connor waistcoat, a Day shirt accessorized with a tie bar, “Dr. No cuffs,” an ivory silk pocket square and Hugh sunglasses. Another look features a nylon quilted cardigan jacket with ribbed knit sleeves and gunmetal embellishments and gabardine twill ski pants. The fourth look includes a Windsor ivory viscose faille dinner jacket, O’Connor black evening trousers, an evening shirt, a black satin cummerbund and a black silk grosgrain bow tie. The fifth look includes a gray pinstripe two-piece single-breasted O’Connor suit, a Day shirt and a navy blue cashmere herringbone Crombie coat. The sixth look includes a blue Prince of Wales two-piece single-breasted O’Connor suit and a 2 Day shirt in blue cotton poplin.
“I could not be happier to be dressing Daniel Craig as James Bond again in the upcoming film, ‘Spectre,'” Ford said. “James Bond epitomizes the Tom Ford man in his elegance, style and love of luxury.”
