English tailor Dunhill to dress 007 in Bond 22, Brioni confirmed as out
The worldâs most famous spy is about to change out of his Brioni tux. For the first time in 12 years, James Bond will not wear hand-stitched Brioni suits on screen - reports DNR
A Brioni spokeswoman told BTL that the Italian luxury labelâs decade-long relationship with the film franchiseâduring which Brioni dressed Pierce Brosnan and, more recently, Daniel Craigâhad ended. âWeâre sorry to no longer be involved, but things change,â the spokeswoman said. âThere appears to be a new costume designer, and [with that] comes a new approach to the wardrobe.â
Apparently 007 is going back to his English roots: London-based Dunhill is said to have landed the high-profile role of providing costumes for Bond. A Dunhill spokeswoman had no comment. However, this would be a natural progression for the Richemont-owned company.
Dunhill has dressed Craig for a series of publicity events, including the world premiere of Casino Royale last fall.
