“Bond, James Bond.” From the moment Sean Connery uttered that famous name at the beginning of Dr. No, Agent 007 captured the world’s imagination. In the five decades since, the suave screen hero has not only headlined the most successful franchise in film history, he has made an indelible impact on the worlds of art, music, fashion, technology, travel, automotive design, and lifestyle.
The Designing 007 : Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibition celebrates this world of innovation and action, style and sex appeal with an inside view of the world’s favourite secret agent.
Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style is the result of collaboration between the Barbican Centre, London, and the Bond production company, EON Productions. It is a unique exhibition, guest-curated by fashion historian Bronwyn Cosgrave and Oscar®-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming and is designed by Ab Rogers who all had unprecedented access to EON’s production archive.
Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style takes visitors on a multi-sensory journey, through a dozen themed rooms and environments from 1962’s Dr. No to 2012’s Skyfall.
The objects are unforgettable: Roger Moore’s white tuxedo from Octopussy and the spacesuit from Moonraker; Scaramanga’s golden gun from The Man With The Golden Gun, Jaws’ fearsome teeth which first appeared in The Spy Who Loved Me; gadgets from Q Branch including the attaché case given to Bond in From Russia With Love; and the 1964 silver Aston Martin DB5 from Goldeneye which famously returned to the screen in Skyfall.
