Burlington Arcade, the historic landmark and luxury retail destination in London’s Mayfair, has launched a 007 installation in celebration of No Time To Die. The James Bond themed installation, which was revealed on Monday 20th September, features a stunning James Bond inspired entrance at Burlington Gardens: inside special 007 arches run the full length of the arcade, with a show stopping James Bond ‘Gun Barrel photo op’ in the centre.
The connection between Burlington Arcade and 007 has its foundation through three Arcade residents and long-time Bond partners: Crockett & Jones, Globe-Trotter and N.Peal. This September, Burlington Arcade will be joined by two more Bond partners:
Omega, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer, will launch a boutique ‘Omega House’. Although Omega has had a presence in the Arcade via their vintage store since 2006, the new space will be totally dedicated to 007. The new ‘Omega Bond House’ boasts a ground floor retail pop-up, an Omega private members bar, and an exclusive exhibition by photographer Greg Williams.
Also on display are key props and watches from the James Bond movies. To celebrate the launch a special Omega inspired carpet, in the same colourway as the ‘Nato’ strap that features on the ‘Bond watch’, will run the full length of the arcade. Time-piece inspired mobiles hang throughout in a subtle nod to the Swiss watch manufacturer and the latest movie title.
The second boutique launch is an exclusive Bollinger 007 Champagne bar. A celebration of over 40 years of partnership, guests will also be able to purchase the 007 Limited Edition Special Cuvee and gift box – created by the House to mark the release of No Time To Die.
