The Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style exhibition is now at the Kunsthal Rotterdam until the 8th February 2015. More than 500 items including costumes, gadgets, props, storyboards and original photographs are on show. Celebrating 50 years of the James Bond franchise, the exhibition focuses on Bond’s influence on art, music, lifestyle, automotive design, travel, technology and fashion over the course of the past five decades. Attending the opening preview in October were Maryam d’Abo (Kara Milovy) and Jeroen Krabbé (General Koskov) from THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS.
Items on display include Roger Moore’s white tuxedo from OCTOPUSSY, the orange bikini worn by Halle Berry in DIE ANOTHER DAY and Scaramanga’s Golden Gun from THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN. The exhibition has been formed with exclusive material from the archives of EON Productions on commission from the Barbican, London, by guest curator Bronwyn Cosgrove, Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, and designer Ab Rogers.
