Orlebar Brown have today launched the third instalment in their James Bond 007 Heritage Collection.

The launch, originally scheduled for March 2020, was delayed due to the postponement of No Time To Die (2020).

In their latest official collaboration, Orlebar Brown have drawn inspiration from the early Bond films featuring Sean Connery, George Lazenby and Roger Moore, recreating a number of iconic looks for a modern audience.

The newest editions to the 007 Heritage Collection are not exact replicas of looks worn on screen, but rather take inspiration from iconic looks, and reinterpret them for a modern audience.

Dr. No (1962)

Orlebar Brown - Dr No - Riviera Tailored Trousers

Riviera Tailored Fit Trousers (AU $475)

To honour one of the most famous scenes in the film, we recreated the Riviera Blue trousers Bond wears when he meets Honey Ryder on Crab Key Beach. The washed Portuguese cotton creates an antiqued finish while our signature side fasteners add the O .B touch.

Orlebar Brown Dr No Knitted Polo

Knitted Polo (AU $585)

Inspired by Bond’s classic beach style, this timeless Italian polo shirt in ivory cotton-silk is smooth, lightweight and breathable.

* The knitted polo is the one piece in the collection that is not screen accurate, and is instead based on a heavily colour corrected publicity still. The original shirt, seen in the above image, is light blue and matches the Riviera Trousers worn by Bond.

Orlebar Brown Dr No Bulldog Swin Shorts

Bulldog Mid-Length Swim Shorts (AU $495)

The print featured on these swim shorts is an adaptation of the first poster to be released to the public as a teaser before the release of ‘Dr. No’, featuring Joseph Caroff’s logo of a pistol overlaying Bond’s codename 007.

The tailored swim short is where it all began for Orlebar Brown; designed to give you effortless style wherever you are. Based on the pattern of a man’s traditional tailored trouser with signature side-fasteners to adjust and crafted from fabric that dries quickly, the OB Classic Bulldog offers the perfect blend of form and function.

Ours is not only authentic in design, but in quality, with an expertly tailored silhouette and Capri collar in Spanish cotton.

Perhaps the most prized creation in our collection is the cream linen-cotton suit from ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. Bond wore it together with a light pink shirt in the scenes at the Portuguese hotel before meeting Countess Tracy di Vicenzo. In a design like the original, the tailored blazer features a two-button placket, twin flap pockets at the hip, and a single welt pocket on the chest for sunglasses, or perhaps a clever gadget. The matching trousers also boast a tailored fit while the flat front keeps the style modern.
