London to Melbourne - Designing 007

Dressing the world's most stylish character is no easy task. That's why Lindy Hemming, the Academy Award winning costume designer, decided to collaborate with Sunspel, Britain's finest heritage brand, for the two latest James Bond films: Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. 

With Spectre, the newest 007 film, currently in cinemas, we thought it was apt to acknowledge and reflect on the first anniversary of Sunspel's arrival in Melbourne (and Australia). 

Having played host to Suitably Connected in February 2015 at its incredible Gertrude St store, we have a soft spot for Sunspel. It's commitment to quality, design and comfort makes it a standout in the everyday luxury market. Once you experience their store and products, you won't go back. 

Not sure where to start? Well, with record temperatures in October in Melbourne, why not go for the Sunspel and 007 classic, the Riviera Polo. The warp knit cotton fabric creates a mesh like texture which gives it structure while keeping its wearer nice and cool. Available in a range of colours and in short sleeve or long sleeve, it's the perfect addition to the summer wardrobe.
