Speaking on the collection, Designer and Co-Founder, Patty Perreira says “We’re thrilled to integrate the Barton Perreira brand into such an iconic franchise and are excited for viewers to not only see the collection come to life in the film, but to also have the opportunity to purchase the styles. James Bond embodies many things Barton Perreira represents – style, innovation, design and affinity for high quality luxury items – and we’re proud to see him in our frames.”
The first release in the collection features two limited edition sunglasses styles inspired by iconic characters from the James Bond film series.
The Thunderball pays homage to the sunglasses worn by James Bond in Thunderball (1965). Each pair feature polarised lenses that are finished with anti-reflection coating and feature a secret breath detail of the 1962-era 007 logo. The original 1962 007 logo is also featured on a plaque on the temple tip of each frame.
The handmade frame is built in Japan from zylonite acetate containing metal core wiring to provide a skeletal foundation with supreme comfort and a flexible fit. The signature lightweight feel of the sunglasses is due to the resin-based polymer plastic used. Zylonite is tumbled for several days before being hand polished twice to create a seamlessly smooth surface. This material selection and uncompromising process results in a light, durable product with a deep gloss finish.
The Thunderball are available in:
- Black / Nocaturnal Polarised
- Chestnut / Sequoia Polarised
- Dusk / Marine Polarised
- Champagne / Commando Polarised
The AVTAK reimagines the aviator silhouette popularised by iconic A View To A Kill (1985) villain Max Zorin, played by Christopher Walken.
Handmade in Japan, the design has a fine titanium metal frame with a uniquely modified angled aviator silhouette. A combination of smooth and textured detailing creates a multi-layered affect across the bridge and temples.
Bi-coloured titanium surround a sophisticated CR39 lens with anti-reflection coating featuring a breath logo that reveals with the Zorin logo, while temple tips feature the 1962-era 007 logo mark.
The AVTAK are available in:
- Gold / Silver / Smokey Topaz
- Black Satin / Gold / Smolder
- Black Satin / Noir
- Gold / Bottle Green
- Silver / Steep Blue
Each pair of sunglasses are presented in a limited edition Barton Perreira x 007 Legacy Collection case with cleaning cloth.
