Items on display include the sky-blue trunks worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, Roger Moore’s spacesuit from Moonraker and Oddjob’s steel-rimmed bowler hat from Goldfinger.

The exhibition has been formed with exclusive material from the archives of EON Productions on commission from the Barbican, London, by guest curator Bronwyn Cosgrove, Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, and designer Ab Rogers.
