The exhibition features more than 500 original objects: costumes, gadgets, decoration tips. The Ursula Andress bikini Dr No (1962) holster leather suit and Yves Saint Laurent Naomie Harris / Moneypenny Spectrum (2015). Through the pistol gold Christopher Lee (1974), white tuxedo Roger Moore and metal teeth of Richard Kiel, aka Shark The Spy Who Loved Me (1977). Or tubes of explosive toothpaste, packets of cigarettes detonators, the flamethrower bagpipes and poisoned punches shoes invented by Q in the 1960s but presented to 007 during the visit of his “amateur practice” in Die another day (2002) …
