A James Bond exhibit in London marks the 50th anniversary of the first 007 film.

It’s no secret that James Bond is the world’s most stylish spy. Now London’s Barbican Center is celebrating half a century of the secret agent’s flair and style on the silver screen in a new exhibition called “Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style”.

Marking the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film, “Dr. No”, the exhibition gives a nod to the staying power of the 007 film franchise and pays “tribute to the British, European, and American craftspeople and designers who have created the look of the quintessentially British icon”, reports the Associated Press.

The 400 items on display include: his wardrobe of tailored tuxedos, the white bikini worn by the first Bond girl, dresses worn by different Bond girls, props, gadgets, and set pieces from the movies. “Designing 007” runs to Sept. 15 and the next Bond film¬†— the 23rd in the series — is scheduled to hit theaters in October.
