Lot Essay

Silva (Javier Bardem) wears this three-piece suit when James Bond (Daniel Craig) first meets him in his Dead City lair. Silva takes Bond to his computer room where he taunts him. “This was not about creating fear or menace; it was about creating an uncomfortable situation," Bardem reflected of Silva’s motivation. Responding to the "uncomfortable" feel of the scene, Jany Temime created a costume that she says is "sexy in an uncomfortable way". Silva’s waistcoat and trousers are impeccably tailored and cut of fine cloth. The flamboyantly printed shirt is the antithesis of Bond’s characteristically classic understated style.
