Tom Ford speaks about suiting Bond in 'Skyfall'

26-Sep-2012 • Skyfall

The British tailor recently gave an interview to Purple Revolver in which he discussed his delight to be dressing the famed British spy once more for "Skyfall".

"I was very excited when I was first approached by [film producer] Barbara Broccoli about dressing Daniel Craig as James Bond. I worked with Jany Temime [Skyfall's costume designer] on creating the perfect classic wardrobe. I have been dressing Daniel for some time and know that he looks best when simply dressed, so we did some beautiful suits, tuxedos and daywear. We didn't really modify our suits, as James Bond is a bit like our guy - classic and extremely elegant."

"It's impossible to name all my style icons, but I am constantly inspired by Cary Grant and Steve McQueen. I am fortunate that every leading man I would love to dress wears - and buys - Tom Ford. Brad Pitt has been an extremely loyal customer since the onset of the brand, and I am happy to dress Daniel Craig, Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Ryan Gosling and Will Smith, among many many others."
