Barton Perreira Goldfinger and B Fourteen 007 Legacy Collection sunglasses

11 March, 2022

Barton Perreira have unveiled two new 007 sunglasses inspired by Bond films to celebrate James Bond’s 60th anniversary.

Earlier this year, Barton released sunglasses inspired by eyewear worn by Bond in Thunderball and a pair worn by Zorin in A View To A Kill in their new Barton Perreira x 007 Legacy Collection.

Goldfinger

The first pair is very loosely based on a pair of Persol 828 sunglasses worn by Sean Connery behind the scenes in Switzerland while shooting the famous car chase scene in the mountains. These sunglasses are not seen in the film itself, but a similar pair was on display at an exhibition in Switzerland.

The Barton Perreira limited-edition sport wrap silhouette features polarised lenses with the 007 breath logo also seen on the Thunderball sunglasses (if you breath on the lens, the logo appears, see it in this video). The temple tips are inscribed with the vintage 007 plaque.

A View To A Kill - B Fourteen

This aviator frame, named "B Fourteen" (referring to the 14th Bond film, A View To A Kill), is inspired by a frame worn by James Bond in the 1985 film A View To A Kill.
