Be Like Bond – Dressed To Kill By Holly Soame
With the release of Spectre, in cinemas nationwide from October 26th, it is now easier than ever to dress yourself in the same style as our favorite Secret Agent. Spy style is not exclusive to Bond, however. Kingsman, which was released in January of this year, inspired its own Bremont watch collection. With a price range starting from £4000, the range featured three watches, but the 18-carot rose gold watch is by far the most impressive, with a classic British aesthetic.
Also due the release of Kingsman, Mr. Porter has released their own clothing line inspired by the film. Selling everything from cotton pajamas to silk blend pocket squares, which retail for £55, you can recreate your own Kingsman wardrobe at home.
Back to Spectre, and you can also own the exact same shoes as Bond, courtesy of Crockett & Jones which, depending on the style, retail for around £400. Tom Ford also has a massive role to play when it comes to spy style. Not only can you buy the exact same Tom Ford glasses as Bond (his favourite being the Marco), you can also have a near identical suit to him, for around £3000.
To make your life even more identical to Bond’s, Belvedere Vodka has released a limited addition bottle, marked 007, but it gets better still. Silver By Aston Martin, designed by silversmith Grant Macdonald, has added to their silver collection with the addition of a classic martini set, complete with a silver shaker, two martini glasses and two olive picks. This sterling silver set may not actually feature in Spectre, but it’s clear that if he had the chance to use them, Bond surely would. Additionally, the Silver By Aston Martin collection also boasts a replica of the silver birch Aston Martin DB5, and is instantly recognisable as the car that was made famous in Goldfinger, where Sean Connery’s Bond made Aston the spy’s wheels of choice.
S.T.Dupont, meanwhile, is celebrating the return of the world’s most famous spy to the big screen with a new collection that embodies elegance, refinement and cutting-edge technical innovation. After the 2004 James Bond and 2006 Casino Royale collections, 007 once again joins forces with the brand world-famous for its legendary lighters and impeccably refined writing instruments with the new Spectre Limited Edition, which draws its inspiration from the famous gun barrel, one of the most iconic images from the 007 films.
