Tom Ford reprises role as James Bond's tailor in 'Skyfall'

Tom Ford to Dress James Bond for Skyfall
Daniel Craig will be wearing Tom Ford when he returns to the multiplex as Agent 007 in "Skyfall," the next installment of the James Bond franchise, scheduled to hit theaters in October 2012.

This marks the second silver-screen pairing of the American designer and the legendary British spy. The first was 2008's "Quantum of Solace," for which Ford worked with that film's costume designer Louise Frogley to give Craig's Bond a wardrobe of suits, tuxedos, sunglasses, overcoats, sweaters, polo shirts and neckties.

Ford worked closely with "Skyfall" costume designer Jany Temime to create a similar range of made-to-measure tailored clothing, eveningwear, suits, shirts, knitwear, ties, accessories and eyewear.

"I could not be happier to be dressing Daniel Craig again in the next James Bond film," Ford said in a press release announcing the collaboration. "James Bond epitomizes the Tom Ford man in his elegance, style and love of luxury. I am thrilled to move forward with this iconic character."

For the five movies before "Quantum," (1995's "GoldenEye" through 2006's "Casino Royale"), the honor of dressing James Bond went to Italian luxury brand Brioni.
