N.PEAL LAUNCHES WOMENS 007 CASHMERE COLLECTION DESIGNED IN CONJUNCTION WITH EON PRODUCTIONS, MAKERS OF THE JAMES BOND FILMS. N.PEAL DELVED INTO THE BOND ARCHIVES TO SELECT A SERIES OF ICONIC LOOKS FROM ACROSS THE PAST 50 YEARS AND REIMAGINED THEM FOR TODAY.
Exclusive cashmere knitwear brand N.Peal is delighted to announce the launch of the first ever 007 women’s cashmere collection presented exclusively on NYFW.COM
James Bond films have always placed women at the heart of the action. From the very outset, allies such as Honey Ryder (Dr. No) and Pussy Galore (Goldfinger) have proved themselves resilient and skillful.The films have since created numerous female characters that live long in the memory, including Tracy Di Vicenzo (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), May Day (A View To A Kill) and Jinx (Die Another Day), to name a few.The Bond films have also featured powerful female adversaries whose intellect and inventiveness have tested 007’s mettle.
To celebrate all of these iconic women, N.Peal has delved into the Bond archives to select seven classic looks from across the past 50 years and reimagined them for today. Finding inspiration in the shirt worn by Honey Ryder in Dr No (1962) to a deep V neck sweater worn by Holy Goodhead in Moonraker (1979).
The range is supported by two key pieces N.Peal designed and created in collaboration with No Time To Die Costume Designer, Suttirat Anne Larlarb. A Moorland Brown 100% cashmereT-shirt worn by the character Madeleine Swann and the Unisex Navy Blue ribbed army sweater worn by the character James Bond in the film and in the striking character poster. “The N.Peal team worked with my brief, which consisted of detailed photographs of authentic sweaters and several samples of extant vintage pieces, as well as colour thoughts and technical specs” Larlarb says. “When you are dealing with the number of decisions you have to make on a Bond film, with so many important characters and so many vital items of clothing, having a collaboration like the one we had with N.Peal was a godsend.”
N.Peal previously worked with the filmmakers on Skyfall (2012), providing a Blue Wave Roundneck Sweater for Bond and on Spectre (2015), supplying 007 with a superfine cashmereTurtleneck and a light grey Rollneck.
