Dress like Bond: Get the party started
Wir sind im James Bond Fieber: Korken knallen lassen, den Martini schütteln, nicht rühren, und das Spiegelbild ordentlich aufbrezeln. Dazu haben wir Inspirationen für das Bond- und Bond-Girl-Outfit: für den mit Spannung erwarteten Release von „Spectre“.
We are in James Bond fever: popping corks, shaking – not stirring – our Martinis and dressing to the nines (or should that be sevens?). Here is some inspiration for your very own Bond and Bond girl outfits for the long awaited release of Spectre. Costume designer Jany Tamime dresses James Bond in khaki and dark blue suits by Tom Ford, in black coats, polo-neck jumpers and quilted gilets. Back again after a long absence: an ivory tux. Monica Bellucci, who takes over Teri Hatcher’s mantle as the “oldest” ever Bond girl – though she still passes as a “girl” at fifty – wears black gowns. Lots of lace and silk is donned by Léa Seydoux, who plays psychologist Dr. Swann in a private clinic in the Austrian Alps. And Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny is given a natural look in classic suits.
Luxury between film and reality
Luxury labels are desperate to make the grade for Bond – and not without reason. Numerous accessories and merchandise are launched at every film premiere. Though the world has admittedly not been waiting with bated breath for them all. Several exhibitions – most recently in in Madrid – have been dedicated to 50 years of Bond style. Many of the designs on display are considered iconic. Designers may create a fairy-tale world for the movies, but the real world of luxury often spills over into the film’s reality: from Bond’s car to his Martini, from his bespoke suit to his Bond girl’s evening gown. With Seven, 007 Fragrances continues their Bond-inspired men’s scent collection in their distinctive black falcons. Belvedere Vodka has landed Estrella actor Stephanie Sigman as their ambassador. Their recommendation: the Belvedere 007 Martini (60 ml vodka, 10ml dry vermouth, garnished with a lemon twist). Bollinger champagne has now accompanied James Bond for some forty years. Designer Eric Berthès has come up with a fitting range of Spectre crystalware, designed especially for your true-to-style James Bond party and the questions your guests will ask there:
What is Christoph Waltz like as a bad guy? More duplicitous than Klaus Maria Brandauer in 1983’s Never Say Never Again? Will Sölden and its Ice Q restaurant at some 3,000 metres above sea level become a pilgrimage site for Bond fans like the Piz Gloria (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) on Switzerland’s Schilthorn? And did we spot the Austrian shooting locations of Sölden, Altaussee and Obertilliach between the quick cuts?
James Bond parties may well be old hat, but like the films they are just as much fun as ever!
