Fabergé unveils a homage to James Bond: 007 Octopussy Collection

The allure of the James Bond franchise has always been its ability to captivate audiences with thrilling adventures, sophisticated charm, and a touch of glamour. Now, in a collaboration that blends the worlds of luxury and espionage, Fabergé and James Bond unveil the first in a series of exquisite jewellery and objet collections inspired by the 007 archive.

Available for purchase and pre-order from March 25, 2024, the debut Fabergé x 007 capsule collection pays homage to the iconic James Bond film Octopussy (1983). This exclusive collection, comprising a hand-crafted limited-edition egg objet and a special edition egg surprise locket, is set to delight both admirers and collectors of Fabergé and James Bond alike.

Easter 2024 marked the continuation of the Fabergé x 007 partnership, following the initial announcement in 2022 of the forthcoming one-of-a-kind Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet. Each collection in the series draws inspiration from a different James Bond film, with the debut collection drawing from the intricate plot of Octopussy, which revolves around an elaborate Fabergé egg heist.

Crafted under the visionary direction of Fabergé Head of Design, Liisa Tallgren, and overseen by Fabergé Creative Director, Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, the Octopussy collection exudes a symphony of past, present, and future. The design of each piece is imbued with subtle nods to the legendary film, paying homage to its enduring legacy.

At the heart of the collection lies the Fabergé x 007 Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet, a masterpiece of craftsmanship limited to just 50 numbered pieces. Standing at 8.4cm tall and crafted from 18k yellow gold, this mesmerizing objet is hand-painted with rich green enamel, reminiscent of the iconic Fabergé egg featured in the film. Intricately engraved octopus tentacles wrap around the egg, adding depth and intrigue to the piece, while a meticulously applied 007 logo marks the point of entry into its hidden surprise—a miniature 18k yellow gold octopus adorned with diamonds.

Accompanying the egg objet is the Fabergé x 007 Special Edition Octopussy Egg Surprise Locket, a true testament to the artistry and ingenuity of Fabergé. Featuring an 18k gold lattice framework delicately set with sapphires and diamonds, this exquisite locket opens to reveal a miniature octopus inside, capturing the spirit of the film’s namesake.

From the meticulous craftsmanship to the attention to detail, each piece in the Fabergé x 007 Octopussy collection is a testament to the enduring legacy of both brands. With a limited number of editions available, these exquisite creations offer collectors a rare opportunity to own a piece of cinematic history.

The Fabergé x 007 collection is available for purchase at select Fabergé boutiques, online at Faberge.com and 007Store.com, and through authorized retailers worldwide. As the debut collection in a series that promises to redefine luxury and storytelling, the Fabergé x 007 Octopussy collection invites enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the world of James Bond and experience the thrill of espionage in the most luxurious of ways.
