Two British Institutions
Crockett & Jones have worked with the 007 filmmakers on a number of recent Bond films Skyfall, Spectre and the recently released film No Time To Die.
James Bond is not only the world’s most famous secret agent, he is also the world’s best dressed. Before 007, the archetypal secret agent was draped in a long coat, eyes hidden beneath a wide-brimmed hat. James Bond changed all that.
Bond’s wardrobe is an integral part of his character, and it is the tuxedo that stands as his most celebrated look.
In a recent interview Suttirat Anne Larlarb, No Time To Die’s costume designer said, “The tuxedo is the most iconic of the James Bond wardrobe looks, and the finishing touch to the tuxedo is, of course, the right pair of shoes. A shoe will finish off any look and make it perfect from a visual standpoint.”
When Bond walks into a room he has to be immaculate and sharp, but also subtle. Elegant, yet understated.
Whether setting off in a vintage DB5 or sipping a shaken Martini, make sure that a pair of Crockett & Jones Highbury accompany you throughout your evening.
Working closely with the 007 filmmakers Crockett & Jones supplied two further styles to the production. James Bond wears the timeless Highbury in a number of key scenes during No Time To Die and MOLTON when the story takes Bond to Norway.
“Bond is known for his perfectly elegant comportment in all situations and in No Time To Die, Crockett & Jones’s shoes are very much a part of that equation.” continues Larlarb.
“What separates a good custom make from a perfect one is a question of having the time to achieve that perfection,” she explains, “and we were steps ahead with Crockett & Jones’s already perfect lasts. They were able to provide for us exactly what we needed and without a hitch.
“Working with Crockett & Jones to achieve the custom shoes we required for No Time To Die was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.”
A plain fronted three eyelet derby shoe, the Highbury is made from the finest calf leather, and features their 'City' rubber sole. A Derby is possibly the most versatile of all shoe styles, bridging the gap between smart and smart-casual wear with ease.
NO TIME TO DIE
From Cuba to London, the Highbury features in a number of scenes in No Time To Die. Last 348 has cemented itself into Crockett & Jones’s legacy as the choice of James Bond in Skyfall, Spectre and now No Time To Die. Two British icons united by style and elegance.
