The work of costume designer Joanna Johnston harmonized with the sets and tones selected by production designer Oliver Scholl. "In Berlin, the overriding visual was concrete. Everything was cold, hard, and quite dismal," she said. "We have a bit of freshness coming through with the introduction of prints and patterns when the story crosses over to West Berlin but the palette is still cold. Then, in Italy, the colors are warm and it's all very sophisticated." How the Cold War era broke culturally from the immediate post-Second World War drabness of the 1950s was what inspired Johnston, who researched the period via fashion magazines of the time. "It was all about color," she expanded. "It was a very radical and adventurous time across all disciplines, from art to fashion and music. What really struck me was the freedom of design of the time; it shines through the photography, the models, the styling, everything." In sync with director Guy Ritchie, Johnston strove to avoid the kind of cliché extremes that can mar a period piece, opting for something "more subtle and original, but still glossy and slick, like those films you remember where everyone looked good no matter what they were doing."


Desk Clerk: This time, I do need to go.
Napoleon Solo: That's disappointing. Just another five minutes?
Desk Clerk: I know your "five minutes", Mr. Deveny.


The slang term "chop shop" (a clandestine location where stolen cars are stripped for their parts) was used several times early in the film. According to Merriam-Webster, this phrase was first used in 1977. Since this movie is set in the early1960s, such usage is ahead of its time.
