Last night marked the London premier of Skyfall at the Royal Albert Hall. Fans turned out in droves to catch a glimpse of the stars of the film, and even Charles & Camilla. Daniel Craig walked the red carpet in what appeared to be a blue shawl collar dinner jacket from Tom Ford which differed only slightly from the classic black number he sports in the movie.
At some point in the film – my guess is it follows London – 007 finds himself in Shanghai where he encounters the beautiful Severine played by French actress Berenice Marlohe. The trailer shows an encounter where he inquires about her boss, who we may assume to be Javier Bardem’s character. They later film a shower scene together, and at another point he watches her in a hotel room from across the street (more on that later this week.)
The shawl collar tuxedo is very classic, and fairly easy to find in most stores including, yep you guessed it, J.Crew. And if you hadn’t already figured it out, I have assembled a kit below highlighting the elements to Bond’s sleek style using mostly items found at J.Crew. Can you spot the one that isn’t?
