Meet Jany Temime, the costume designer responsible for James Bond’s unbelievably suave suits.
When she wasn’t gushing about star Daniel Craig’s stellar bod (no arguments here), Temime told The Daily about split trousers, bloodied suits and sewing Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe into her dress.
How many repairs did you do during shooting?
We had 30 for Daniel and 30 for the stunt man. For every scene we have one that’s clean, one that’s dirty, one that’s dirty with blood, all the different stages. For the motorcycle scenes, the sleeves and trousers are longer and we’d reinforce the seat and the back. But the suits were so amazingly made that they hardly ever damaged. He was rolling in the dirt and they were still perfect, street-ready. The one scene where we had a lot of repairs was the scene where he jumps onto the lift. We had to repair the trousers a lot [laughs].
Musician and mother Ellie Stager never expected to be an entrepreneur. But after her husband, a pastor, asked her to make him a bow tie, she took out the sewing machine and got to work. Now just three years later, Stager runs a five-person bow tie company called The Cordial Churchman from a former county courthouse in Rock Hill, S.C.

The weather is warm and style’s getting hotter — it’s time to show some leg! We rounded up funky summer shorts for the whole family.
We got to hang out with Ariel and Shimon Ovadia, the super-stylish 29-year-old fraternal twins behind the current “it” menswear line Ovadia & Sons.
“We’re not a fashion brand. We just want to make cool clothes,” Shimon told The Daily. But “cool clothes” is a bit of an understatement.
Brand or not, Ovadia & Sons was recently picked by GQ as one of six America’s Best New Menswear Designers to create a collection for The Gap. Their line’s a year-and-a-half old and they get to dress America. The twins are ecstatic.
Three-piece, two-piece, plaid piece, blue piece. Men’s suits are everywhere, including fashion week in Milan, and Emma Barker rounded up the details.
