where the writers are

A new exhibition at London’s Barbican Centre explores the style of James Bond. The collection includes costumes, props, set pieces and design drawings from half a century of 007 films. The show is both a reflection of the remarkable durability of Ian Fleming’s fictional secret agent, and a tribute to the British, European and American craftspeople and designers who have created the look of the quintessentially British icon.

Clips from the legendary motion pictures are screened throughout the exhibition. Costumes such as tuxes worn by Sean Connery (classic Saville Row) to Roger Moore (by designer Doug Hayward) to Daniel Craig, who is dressed by American Tom Ford highlight the collection of artifacts. More favorites: Bond-Girl gowns, and of course, a neat array of gadgets and props, including a martini glass, minus the shaken-not-stirred beverage.

Designing 007 runs through September 5th. It will then tour internationally, opening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto in October.
