Nothing conjures up themes of lavish glamour, high end brands, dapper gentlemen and beautiful women quite like James Bond. With the impending new film Skyfall, out on October 29th, here at Partridge Events we’ve been reminiscing about the previous glitzed filled, Bond themed parties we’ve created, and getting excited at the prospect of new ones.
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year, the James Bond franchise is currently bang on trend, featuring in everything from the London 2012 Olympics to the Barbican, where Designing 007, an exhibition filled with his ‘fifty years of style’, iconic memorabilia and classic posters, gleans its walls in homage to the influential movie brand. Highlights of the exhibition include costumes by Queen of maximalist patterns and opulence, Donatella Versace, as well as classic brands known for amazing tailoring such as Armani and Prada, gadgets and technology featured in the films and wonderful set pieces and props that are a great source of inspiration to us when creating the themed events we’re renowned for.
Using London as its base location, as seen in the official trailer, Skyfall features the Union Jack, National Gallery, beautiful British architecture and our rather stereotypical brooding, grey skies. Inspired by this, as well as the glamour of French actress Bérénice Marlohe and the gorgeous suits of Mr Bond himself, we’ve been brainstorming classic colour combinations that channel the Bond themes, and would transform any venue into sumptuous 007 event.
Tones of gold and black form a beautiful table aesthetic, especially when paired with a dash of light grey and classic sparkle, and the gold tipped glasses featured below are a great, cost effective way to brighten up any corporate event, private party or product launch. Also inspiring us are these Celine bracelets created for Autumn/Winter 12, ceiling roses, baroque panelling, chandeliers and amazing Givenchy dresses that require an immense amount of detailing, quite similar to the thought and detail in our own work, as seen in our previous events.
All this Bond inspiration has gotten us excited, thinking about the many different, unique services, ideas and themes we could come up with for any kind of event you could want to host. From 007 live entertainment, floral décor to mimic classic British visuals and flowers, props that echo the past 50 years of iconic entertainment and a glamorous, relaxed atmosphere, Partridge Events can visualise an unforgettable event for you.
