06 Jan Luxagram Report: Designing 007
While the last couple of weeks of Tiff’s Designing 007 gallery is upon us I thought we could take a look at the exhibit without giving too much away. In the world of Youtube, Instagram and whatever else is hot at the moment we can take a good look at what users are experiencing. Since I won’t get able to get to Toronto to view the exhibit of one of my favorite childhood(and adulthood) hero’s, I’ll bring it to myself and you folks via social media.
This is the only spot in Canada this gallery will be displayed, and it had started of course in London at the Barbican Centre this past summer. Bond has been saving the world for five decades now and it is about time we had an hommage to all things Bond.
The Bond “brand” is more than just a man and goes deep into style, technology and innovation that has sparked the interest in countless fans across the globe. The gallery features costumes, props, models, gadgets, concept artwork, storyboards and other fascinating artifacts from the series. Signature Bond items featured in the exhibition include the steel teeth worn by Richard “Jaws” Kiel in The Spy Who Loved Me; the Anthony Sinclair overcoat worn by Sean Connery in Dr. No; the poker table from Casino Royale; and multiple gadgets from Q Branch.
I’ve scoured the #designing007 hashtag on Instagram where there’s nearly a 1000 photos from the exhibit, and not too much is given away.
