Dressed to Kill: James Bond, The Suited Hero: a celebration of the clothing styles that have made James Bond one of the most potent and enduring cultural icons.
250 illustrations included, 100 in color. Carefully researched texts and copious illustrations trace Bond's influence as a male style icon on many dimensions of popular culture, from action sports to advertising - as well as on the man in the street. Bond fans, movie buffs and fashion aficionados will all find new and illuminating material in this volume, which brings together a broad range of previously unpublished documents including filmstills, advertising, and candid images of the Cold War ambience of which Bond was a product. Although many books have explored the fascinating history of the 007 films, this is the first to demonstrate what made the Bond character a modern myth, and the world's most famous secret agent.
