Tom Ford to dress James Bond

2011-11-06 09:34

London - Tom Ford will again design the clothing and accessories, from tuxedos to sunglasses, worn by actor Daniel Craig as he portrays super spy James Bond in upcoming movie Skyfall, the designer said on Friday.

Ford, who also dressed the British secret agent in the last installment of the Bond film series, Quantum of Solace, said in a statement that he is "thrilled to move forward with this iconic character."

"James Bond epitomises the TOM FORD man in his elegance, style and love of luxury," Ford in a statement.

The designer follows on the heels of Italian brand Brioni and British tailors from London's famed Saville Row, creating suits for Bond actors Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan in the franchise's almost 50-year history.

Ford, 50, was the former creative director of Italian fashion label Gucci and French fashion label Yves Saint Laurent. He is currently the head of his own brand, designing menswear, womenswear, eyewear and beauty collections.

The fashion designer also gained recognition in 2009 for his Oscar-nominated film directorial debut, A Single Man, starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.
