Michael Kors launching James Bond capsule collection_1


Michael Kors is teaming up with executives of the James Bond film franchise to launch a limited-edition collection of bags.

The three-piece MKC x 007 Bond Capsule Collection is part of an exclusive partnership with the 007 film franchise and will be available just before the 25th Bond movie, No Time To Die, is released in April.

The line consists of three bags – the Bond Bancroft satchel, priced at $1,750 (£1,350); a calf leather Bond Carryall, $2,350 (£1,810); and the cotton canvas Bond Duffel, $1,950 (£1,500).

Kors said he has been heavily inspired by movies throughout his lengthy career and believes his accessories are a “perfect fit” for the 007 franchise.

“When it comes to iconic jet-set sophistication, I think Bond is top of mind for a lot of people the world over. When this opportunity arose, we felt it was a great match. Jet-set glamour, sophistication, speed, energy – these are all words that come to mind when you think about the world of James Bond. They’re also at the core of our brand DNA,” he told WWD.

The Bond Bancroft is also worn by Naomie Harris’ character Eve Moneypenny throughout the upcoming movie, and the Oscar-nominated actress loved using the chic bag on set.

“Moneypenny is usually carrying around a lot of vital information in her bag and filming hours are long. So it was great to have something so comfortable and easy to wear, as well as stylish,” she explained. “(It’s) the perfect embodiment of Moneypenny’s love of traditional workwear with designer, quirky funkiness.”

The MKC x 007 Bond Capsule Collection will be available in select Michael Kors stores, on michaelkors.com and 007.com, in late March.
