50 years of Bond style

Last night I took the short walk from well court round to the Barbican to see the ’50 years of Bond style’ exhibition and was not let down. As soon as you walk in you see Bond in a Douglas Haywood 3 piece leaning against his Aston Martin DB5, then walk straight into a scene from Goldfinger with Jill Masterson painted gold lying on the bed. As well as Douglas Haywood, Brioni had a lot of Bond suits on show the main stand out was the white tux from Octopussy in 1983. Even the swimwear like the blue shorts from the film Thunderball look as smart now then they did in 1965. From props to the art work it’s all worth a look. For those of you who have not ventured down to the Barbican as yet it runs until the 5th Sept.
