On the 26th of October 2022, Lock & Co. opened “60 Years of James Bond Hats”, an exclusive exhibition celebrating the film franchise’s 60th Anniversary.
Featuring hats from the six decades of Bond films – including several Lock & Co. designs – the exhibition is a chance to see original pieces of movie history from the 007 Archive, some of which have never been shown before. The exhibition will be at Lock & Co., St James St, London, from 26th October to January 2023.
Fans of fashion history, film history and James Bond are able to see hats alongside supporting props and costumes worn by characters from the series, curated by EON Productions’ Archive Director Meg Simmonds. Highlights include Oddjob’s lethal bowler hat from “Goldfinger” (1964) and Bond’s Day of the Dead top hat and skeleton suit from “SPECTRE” (2015). Visitors will enjoy photo opportunities including a Moneypenny-style hat stand, and props including Goldfinger‘s golf shoes and Raoul Silva‘s police assessories from “Skyfall” (2012).
About Lock & Co.
Established in 1676, Lock & Co, is the oldest hat shop in the world, the oldest shop in London & one of the oldest family-owned businesses still in existence. Revered for centuries-honed craftsmanship, Lock & Co.’s innovative designs have graced the heads of some of the greatest figures in history, Admiral Lord Nelson wore their bicorne into the Battle of Trafalgar. Sir Winston Churchill adopted their Campbridge and Homburg hats as his trademarks. Dashing author Oscar Wilde was a fan, while the equally debonair Beau Brummell procured their hats as part of his sartorial repertoire. No matter the customer, what everyone has come to expect from Lock & Co. is the best: the best designs, the best fabrics, the best service. These continue to be upheld by the 7th generation of the family, who still runs the business from the shop at No. 6 St. James’s Street, London, today. Two Royal Warrants attest to Lock & Co.’s commitment to quality that is trusted worldwide. Lock & Co.’s passion for hats is unbounded, their expertise, unrivalled, and they are what makes them the hat brand not only in the UK, but also globally.
