Following the successful launch of the limited-edition Bond swim shorts in July 2018, men’s resort wear brand Orlebar Brown are releasing an exclusive capsule collection inspired by iconic looks from seven classic James Bond films. The second instalment expands from swimwear to offer pieces including polo shirts, jackets and espadrilles.
Referencing outfits worn by Sean Connery, Roger Moore and George Lazenby as British Secret Service agent 007 in Dr. No, Goldfinger, Thunderball, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, The Man With The Golden Gun and A View To Kill, the collection fuses Bond’s classic and refined style with Orlebar Brown’s resort wear in signature fabrics.
Orlebar Brown’s attention to detail extends even to the labelling inside the towelling robe which reads ‘The Property of Dr. Julius No, Crab Key,’ recalling a scene from Dr. No (1962) where Sean Connery as James Bond and Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder are imprisoned on Crab Key island outfitted in similar robes.
The campaign has been fittingly shot by English photographer Greg Williams, who has a long-standing relationship with the 007 film franchise and is also known for his film and editorial work featuring stars such as Meryl Streep, Tom Hardy, Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Moss.
Shot at Villa TreVille in Positano, Italy, the campaign captures all the adventure and glamour of a typical Bond destination. Available exclusively at Orlebar Brown in-store and online from £145 | 175€ | $225 from May 2019, with further styles released in June 2019.
