CASHMERE COLLECTION INSPIRED BY 50 YEARS OF BOND
007 (Sean Connery) meets with M (Bernard Lee) in “Goldfinger” (1964) to discuss his next assignment and the suffocation of Jill Masterson (Shirley Eaton) found dead after being painted gold. Epitomise the look with N.Peal’s knitted Milano Jacket, waistcoat and tie. All in 100% cashmere
After James Bond (George Lazenby) rescues the beautiful Countess Tracy di Vicenzo (Diana Rigg) in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969), her father Draco makes Bond an offer to give him the resources necessary to locate Blofeld (Telly Savalas) if he will marry her. Bond declines but eventually a genuine romance blossoms. The turtleneck that N.Peal has recreated is 85% cotton, 15% cashmere for a lighter layer under a brown 100% cashmere zip through bomber jacket
In “Live and Let Die” (1973) Bond’s (Roger Moore) mission takes him to the island of San Monique to foil the plans of dictator Dr. Kananga (Yaphet Kotto). Bond successfully destroys Kananga’s poppy fields and rescues Solitaire (Jane Seymour). Our classic black polo neck sweater in 100% cashmere was the ideal candidate for this inspired piece.
“For Your Eyes Only” (1981): At Kristatos‘ (Julian Glover) Greek mountaintop compound, Bond (Roger Moore) and Melina (Carole Bouquet) corner the double agent when he is within reach of the coveted ATAC (Automated Targeting Attack Communicator) he plans to sell to the KGB. The iconic waistcoat is recreated with diamond quilting pattern in 100% cashmere and layered over the chunky marl sweater in 50% cashmere, 50% superfine merino.
An explosive car chase in “The Living Daylights” (1987) results in Bond (Timothy Dalton) and Kara (Maryam D’Abo) sledding briskly down the mountain in her cello case doubled up as a toboggan, escaping Russian soldiers’ fire by crossing the Bratislava border into Austria. N.Peal has recreated this classic fisherman’s rib round neck sweater in 50% cashmere, 50% superfine merino, styling it with a fine gauge neck scarf and chunky ribbed hat in 100% cashmere.
While Bond’s (Pierce Brosnan) driving skills in “GoldenEye” (1995) are evaluated, he embarks on a high-speed race in his Aston Martin DB5 against Xenia Onatopp‘s (Famke Janssen) Ferrari in the mountains near Monte Carlo. N.Peal’s cable crew neck sweater in navy is 100% cashmere.
“Die Another Day” (2002): In Iceland, Bond (Pierce Brosnan) confronts Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) with the knowledge of his previous identity, but is soon held at gun point himself by the double-crossing agent Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike). N.Peal’s chunky ribbed polo neck sweater is made in 50% cashmere, 50% superfine merino.
“Skyfall” (2012): In his Aston Martin DB5, Bond (Daniel Craig) drives M (Judi Dench) through Glencoe to his ancestral home, Skyfall Lodge to prepare for an explosive showdown with cyber-criminal Silva (Javier Bardem). During the defence of Skyfall Lodge, Bond can be seen wearing an N.Peal blue wave crew neck in 100% cashmere.
In Austria Bond (Daniel Craig) encounters Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), Mr. White‘s (Jespen Christensen) daughter and the key to locating SPECTRE’s power centre. When Blofeld‘s (Christoph Waltz) henchman Hinx (Dave Bautista) kidnaps her, Bond follows in fast pursuit. N.Peal’s iconic mock neck sweater also featured in the “SPECTRE” (2015) teaser poster.
