If there’s one thing James Bond has taught us it's that behind every great spy is a great tailor. A new exhibition at London’s Barbican showcases the fashion and design of James Bond.

The exhibition explores the style of the suave secret agent, displaying costumes and design drawings from half a century of 007 films. Assembled with help from the films’ producers, who have a new Bond movie to promote in the fall, the exhibition, called "Designing 007: 50 Years of Bond Style," includes the spy’s tuxedos, Bond girl ballgowns and villains’ vestments, as well as a selection of props and gadgets.

There are also sketches by the films’ influential set designer Ken Adam. The show is both a reflection of the remarkable staying power of Ian Fleming’s fictional secret agent and a tribute to the British, European and American designers who created the look of the quintessentially British icon. The exhibition runs to September 5th.
