BOND BABES: Eres will launch a capsule collection influenced by Ursula Andress, the Swiss actress who played the first Bond girl.
“The design studio at Eres has always been enamored with the timeless beauty of Bond girls,” said Marie-Paule Minchelli, head of the Eres creative studio. “This collection pays tribute to them and takes inspiration from the swimsuit Ursula Andress wore in the first bond film while incorporating classic Eres design and details.”
The line is named after 84-year-old singer-actress Petula Clark. The collection consists of four different styles — one bikini and three one-pieces — that come in colors including fuchsia, green, cobalt and gray. The offering, which will be available starting April at Barneys New York and Net-a-porter, retails from $175 to $540.
This is Eres’ second capsule collaboration. Last year the brand collaborated with The Webster’s Laure Hériard Dubreuil on a 12-piece collection.
