Sunspel Honors Ian Fleming & 007 With A Sea Island Cotton Apparel Capsule

Sep 2, 2021

Category: Style

Authors will often create their characters as a reflection of their personal selves, and this proves especially true in the case of Ian Fleming and his steely-eyed spy James Bond. For if there’s one thing that Fleming appreciated throughout his lifetime, it was Sea Island cotton, a material 007 himself favored in many of the books as well.

Keeping this in mind, Sunspel — the brand that’s clothed Bond since the 2006 film Casino Royale — has partnered with the Ian Fleming Estate to create an entire collection dedicated to the fabric. Comprised of polos, short- and long-sleeved button-downs, a roll-neck sweater, a sweatshirt, and even a pajama set, it sees each silhouette transformed into a piece of top-dollar luxury apparel. After all, Sea Island cotton is one of the rarest and most coveted materials in the world, highly praised for the long staple that makes it soft, lightweight, and exceptionally refined compared to your typical loopback. So, whether you go for something more casual like the Riviera or something more formal like one of the shirts, needless to say, you’ll be doing Fleming proud. You can buy the Sunspel Ian Fleming Collection now starting at $250.

Purchase: $250+
