In a recent interview, Larlarb went into detail about the design of the costume in question. Because it was above all to work on the silhouette of 007, as iconic as the character himself.

A special outfit for James Bond (before Craig’s farewell)

« We wanted Daniel to be remembered with something we had never seen before. An iconic silhouette was needed at all costs. Something as iconic as the iconography of Bond coming out of the gun barrel. All the boxes had to be ticked. This sweater is not a simple sweater. This is a revised version of a British commando outfit during WWII. I knew it would make the difference on Daniel ” explains the costume designer.

It was essential that Craig’s last shot put him in value and that we not forget this last image. By bringing a vintage piece, the costume designer also wanted to echo the longevity of the saga. In evoking the cannon shot, she uses an element usually shown in intros to greet Craig’s departure. A nice message sent to the one who gave so much to the franchise. This commando look also makes it possible to underline how perilous his “last” mission is.

Tribute to Craig and the saga thanks to this simple sweater. A harmless element for some that nevertheless makes sense with the very essence of the franchise James Bond. So it wouldn’t be amazing to see the next 007 wearing this outfit, like a new wink, who knows?
