Bond is back. After causing a stir last fall with a capsule of swim trunks featuring the suavest secret agent in history, Orlebar Brown is now expanding its 007 collaboration with everything from polo shirts to jumpsuits. Each piece riffs on an outfit worn by Sean Connery, Roger Moore or George Lazenby in the iconic movie franchise.
“Every piece in this collection references a specific scene in a Bond film that takes place around water,” Orlebar Brown creator Adam Brown tells Alexa. “We took Bond’s clothing, then adjusted fit and details. We re-created it for today.”
(Brown points out that it’s a bit of art imitating life imitating art: Daniel Craig rocked Orlebar Brown’s “Setter” swim shorts in the film “Skyfall” before the brand launched its own Bond-inspired line.)
For a look that demands a poolside deck chair at Miami Beach’s Fontainebleau, suit up in the new “Thunderball” swim shorts ($295) and espadrilles ($225) topped off with a “Dr. No” robe ($475). Ian Fleming fans will delight in Bond-specific details, such as a label in the robe that reads: “The Property of Dr. Julius No, Crab Key.”
Nor did the brand shy away from Bond’s bolder looks: a sky-blue terrycloth onesie (which channels the one worn by Sean Connery in “Goldfinger”) is available for $545. “The infamous blue romper suit appeared on Orlebar Brown’s first mood board,” Brown notes. “It’s one of my favorites, because of its bravery and good value.”
For a more out-and-about but equally martini-worthy ensemble, pair the sage-green “The Man With the Golden Gun” safari jacket ($595) with a “Diamonds Are Forever” toweling shirt ($295), or try the “A View to a Kill” navy jacket ($475) with a long-sleeved “Thunderball” polo ($475). And no 007 would be caught dead without a look fit for the baccarat table: Check out the white linen pleated-front evening shirt ($395).
Naturally, the collection still includes those swim trunks that started it all, which feature movie poster-like graphics from films “Dr. No,” “Live and Let Die,” “You Only Live Twice” and “Moonraker” ($395 each).
It’s all designed to create a man with the golden look — after all, you only live twice.
The resort-wear brand’s new baby-blue onesie (right, $545 at Orlebar Brown) was inspired by the romper Connery wore as 1964’s Bond in “Goldfinger” (left).
