Media & Tech Network Future of advertising From Dr. No to Spectre: the brands of James Bond

As 007’s latest outing hits the big screen, what does an association with the lucrative spy series mean for brands?

As 007’s latest outing hits the big screen, what does an association with the lucrative spy series mean for brands?

James Bond has gone through many incarnations since Ian Fleming sent him on his first mission in 1953, but he has always been defined by brands. From his Tom Ford suit and Omega watch right down to his underpants (Sunspel in case you’re wondering), 007 is undisputedly a labels man.

Brands are integral to the Bond film franchise. Spectre , the 24th official film in the series, is the most expensive yet, with a budget upwards of $350m (£194m) according to reports of leaked Sony emails . Advertising partners have been instrumental in getting the film made and its marketing amplified, and they are already seeing the Bond effect. The N. Peal cashmere turtleneck worn by Daniel Craig in the Spectre film poster sold out almost immediately.

In Bond, almost more than any movie, the role of the brands is particularly heightened

Jason Gonsalves, chief strategy officer at Bartle Bogle Hegarty

Heineken, which poured £28m into Skyfall, covering one third of the film’s budget , rejoins the litany of Bond drinks brands this time round, alongside newly signed Belvedere vodka and Bollinger. Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover provide the wheels and 007’s phone is by Sony, the film’s distributor.

As well as availing of the scale and reach of the Bond franchise with product placement, brands are banking on major ad campaigns and themed products to cement the association, including Heineken with its $100m campaign starring Daniel Craig and Belvedere, which has launched limited edition 007 bottles .

Jason Gonsalves, the chief strategy officer at ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty, notes Bond’s unique pulling power for advertisers. “Part of Bond’s personality is discernment and sophistication and a lot of that is expressed by consumer choices, like which tailoring he uses and which car he drives,” Gonsalves says. “In Bond, almost more than any movie, the role of the brands is particularly heightened.”

Since the first Bond film, Dr. No , was released in 1962, some brand tie-ups, like some Bond actors, have been less successful than others. Seeing the Britain’s foremost secret agent driving a Ford Mondeo in Casino Royale was a low point, while the role of Lark Cigarettes in the aptly named Licence to Kill in 1989 was so poorly received it prompted calls for tobacco product placement in films to be banned. Die Another Day was nicknamed Buy Another Day because of the unprecedented number of advertising partners involved, and some of the product placement in GoldenEye was big enough to drive a tank through, as Pierce Brosnan demonstrated in the infamous chase scene where he crashes through a screen-filling Perrier truck.

Yet, 007 remains at the height of his powers, as evidenced by Skyfall becoming the highest grossing British film of all time . Emily Wood, director of entertainment marketing at ITB Worldwide, a company which secures film and entertainment partnerships for brands, credits Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and production company Eon for taking a very strategic approach to building the franchise. “The filmmakers are very protective over the creative,” Wood says. “They’ve streamlined over the years to focus on the core brands that add value and align with what Bond stands for.”

So which brands have proved a match for Bond? Here’s our top four:

Martini

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Sean Connery’s James Bond enjoys a Martini in Diamonds are Forever (1971).

Bond’s time-honoured love of a vodka Martini has not been shaken by Daniel Craig’s recent Heineken endorsements. Belvedere’s multi-million-pound Spectre deal will see 007’s favourite tipple return to prominence. But controversy hasn’t been put on ice just yet. Bond looks set to switch his order from his usual Vesper version with a lemon twist to a dirty Martini in the upcoming movie .

Aston Martin

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Sean Connery stands with the iconic Aston Martin DB5.

Aston Martin first became the official Bond car when Sean Connery got behind the wheel of a DB5 for Goldfinger in 1964. Aston Martins have driven through eleven Bond films, with a specially created DB10 getting a starring role in Spectre .

Tom Ford

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Daniel Craig’s James Bond wears a Tom Ford suit in Skyfall (2012).

Tom Ford replaced Brioni as James Bond’s tailor in Quantum of Solace, and ever since then 007 has been the perfect muse for the designer. Ford has even declared James Bond the epitome of the Tom Ford man “in his elegance, style and love of luxury.”

Omega

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond sports an Omega watch in Die Another Day (2002)

In Casino Royale, Omega was responsible for dialogue toe-curling enough to make viewers look at their watches for all the wrong reasons. Eva Green asks Daniel Craig if his timepiece is a Rolex. “Omega,” he replies. The message couldn’t have been clearer: Bond is an Omega man now. In fact, Omega has been securely strapped to 007’s wrist since 1995 when it replaced Rolex, the original James Bond watch.

That is the blue "bond" Omega. There were three films about James Bond: "Tomorrow will never die," "And the whole world is not enough," "Die, but not now." The watch has been certified by the chronometer (COSC) for its high accuracy and reliability. A box is available, but the red case itself is in a deplorable external state (it has got stung), the service book (instruction) has been preserved in excellent condition, the cards have long been lost. On the case there are minor scratches from the socks. A professional polishing of the bracelet was carried out (satin-gloss). The mechanism was prevented about a year ago. Bracelet on hand up to 19 cm. The light pattern on the marks and arrows is in good condition. Water protection is in order. Caliber: Omega 1120. Type: self-winding chronometer, rhodium-plated, antimagnetic protection. Case Diameter: 41 mm. Glass: convex, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant, sapphire. Case: steel, blue bezel. Dial: blue, decorated with a pattern in the form of a "sea wave." Water resistance: 30 bar (300 meters / 1000 feet) Free shipping shipping company with tracking track numbers.

wiki How to Dress Like James Bond Three Parts: Dressing to the Nines Going "Casual" Adding the Finishing Touches Community Q&A

Dressing like James Bond can be a great way to impress the ladies and feel confident about yourself. Whether you want to dress like Agent 007 permanently or just for a costume, this article will help you learn how. From Barry Nelson to Daniel Craig, here we go!

Steps Part 1 Dressing to the Nines 1 Get a dark suit or tuxedo that fits . Even if your tux costs you $2,000 for a night's rental and was worn by Christian Bale at the Batman premiere, if it doesn't fit, it doesn't work. This is primo to being Bond-esque. If you're wearing what clearly looks like someone else's suit, you're not owning the clothes. Bond is all about refined manliness. The suit that you wear should give your torso a definite V shape, if at all possible. If you can, go to your tailor and get the button placed at the narrowest place on your waist. That will make those manly shoulders look as broad as possible. 2 Stick to quality fabric. If you have the druthers and ability to do so, find a suit that's made of the right stuff. You'll be best off with a material that's 9 to 11 oz in weight -- it's not so heavy that you'll be sweating even before the girls arrive and not so light that it loses its shape when you start taking down ninjas. [1] You'll also want fabric that's Super 100-120 superfine wool or wool-blend. Anything too coarse and you won't be touched by the ladies and anything too fine and you'll feel the heat from that explosion you set off. [1] 3 Get black or blue. As for color, you want to stick to black or at the most colorful, midnight blue (that's dark, dark blue). But black is your standard, is the safest, and is the most classic. Midnight blue might be used as dinner ensemble and that's about it. Patterns are a no-no. A big no-no when it comes to jackets and trousers. You may have a faint pattern in your cummerbund or bow-tie, but that's it. 4 Find the right white shirt. You'd think this would be simple, but there's even detail to getting the white shirt right. You want a shirt that's clean, pressed, and not a button-down collar. Both single and double cuffs are okay, so long as they stick out just a twitch from beneath your suit jacket. Daniel Craig is often found sporting a shirt with a high neck. This is a good look, but a lower neck is fine, too (Craig doesn't have the longest neck in the world). [1] And speaking of the collar, it should either be point or wing. [2] 5 Get the details right. Alright, so you know what color, what material, and the general basics of what to look for when it comes to your suit. Now let's talk about the details: Keep it single-breasted. It's easier to find and it just looks better. Go no vent or double-vented. Just...do it. Wear suspenders, not a belt. It's not dated, it's classy as all get out. Wear a cummerbund or waistcoat. You want the transition from your pants to your shirt to be utterly seamless. Shawl or peak lapels only. Again, just do it. [2] A neatly-folded pocket square in either white or red (red if you're feeling frisky). [2] Mother-of-pearl cufflinks or simple, basic, small silver studs. 6 Hit your stride in Oxfords. To complete the suit, you need the right shoe. You'll look best in a pair of shiny Oxfords that match your threads -- so black will clearly be the easiest choice. Just make sure they're not scuffed and you could start fires with them, they're so shiny. Need more details? Okay, go for a basic, thin lace-up, with a thin leather sole and a defined heel. [1] Think simple. Always simple. 7 Keep creativity to a minimum. Dressing like Bond is not the time to bust out your velvet maroon fedora. He must remain classic and understated so his coolness takes the spotlight. There's nothing boring about a great tux or suit, so don't feel the need to ramp it up with color or patterns. If you absolutely must show your creativity, mix up your pocket square, get a barely-there pattern on your cummerbund, or mix it up with a vibrant lining in your jacket. Part 2 Going "Casual" 1 Choose your Bond. To be frank, dressing like Sean Connery in "Diamonds are Forever" is a much different look than dressing like Daniel Craig in "Skyfall." And let's not even touch George Lazenby in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." However, there are options. Whether fashion likes it or not. The casual look for each Bond is different. It could be a pair of khakis and a fitted sweater or the sports gear Pierce Brosnan donned in Goldeneye. However, if you want everyone to know you're 007, you'll probably want to go black tie. 2 Stick to neutrals. Again, while a Bubblegum pink suit may have been appropriate in '71, you'll be better off getting your point across if you stick to neutrals in this day and age. Think in blacks, greys, and tans. Think Roger Moore in "Moonraker." A simple black shirt with nice pair of black trousers. Easy as pie, yet still refined and dressed to kill. 3 Think about the weather. Bond isn't super-human; he's still subject to hot and cold. When he's gallivanting on the beaches of Fiji, he can be spotted in lightweight, light-colored linens. If it's hotter than hell on the face of the sun, drop the jacket. You can still drink martinis. In "Skyfall," we see Daniel Craig in a peacoat. There's a touch of femininity to Bond that's somehow masculine. Don't be afraid to get trendy -- in this case, it's a very good thing. 4 When in doubt, rock the swim trunks. In Goldfinger, we saw Sean Connery in his baby blue swimwear. In Casino Royale, we see an homage to that with Daniel Craig's baby blue swim trunks. Not every Bond would rock the £125 swim trunks, though. What's the style of yours? Clearly, Bond exists outside of his fine formal wear. You can still maintain your Bond-ness in any setting -- it just might take a prettier penny. And lots of ironing and dry-cleaning! Part 3 Adding the Finishing Touches 1 Smell like an international man of mystery. You know those Axe commercials where the women get woken from their slumber and follow their noses to the nearest guy donning the cologne? That guys needs to be you. Use your signature scent, whatever it is. James Bond doesn't smell like garlic. Maybe vodka once in a while, but never anything other than that. It should go without saying, but you need to be squeaky clean. Hop in that shower, lather up, rinse down and style your hair. 2 Be clean-shaven. You can keep your leg hair, but everything else needs to be...taken care of. You won't be tempting the ladies with a hobo beard, that's for sure. Nor a fu manchu 'stache. Hate to break it to you. The entire thing needs to go. No sideburns, no pork chops, no five o'clock shadow. Clean, clean, clean. And the chest hair peeping out from underneath your collar? That too. 3 Accessorize. Watches! You don't need high tech watches that can detonate bombs (though if you have one laying around, by all means!), just one with style, like Rolex or Omega. Just find a good watch. A watch with class. As for socks, long and black. Find a good pair from a good store and buy them for the rest of your life. Remember: long and black. Short and white? NO. Long and black. Have a holster on hand? Awesome. Shove that onto your side. No questions asked. 4 Focus on your silhouette. If you're walking down the street, what does your shadow on the pavement look like? Are your pants the right length? Does everything come together at your middle, giving you a slight triangle shape? Are your sleeves not too long and not too short? We're not playing Goldilocks here! All the parts need to be great on their own, but they also need to be great together. Take a look at your entire outfit once you've pieced it together. Does it seem to gel? 5 Rock it with confidence. Odds are you don't don a tux all too often. However, you gotta rock it like it's just a normal Tuesday. You know nothing besides Tom Ford and Brioni. This is what you wear when you're feeling down. This is what you wear when you want to convey indifference to the ladies. This is what you wear by yourself when you're watching the latest episode of "Orange is the New Black." This is nothing. All this effort? That just comes naturally to you. A tux (or other fancy formal wear) will look odd if you don't feel comfortable. Odds are if you have a tux that fits well, you look awesome. So strut your stuff! After all, what would James Bond do?

Video Tips Renting a tuxedo is an option, as well as wearing a standard black suit. Modern Bond doesn't wear ties. However, if you feel you need one, make sure it's not too wide or too narrow and is a dark color. Edit Related wikiHows
