Fabergé launches Fabergé x 007 capsule

Fabergé has unveiled its new Fabergé x 007 capsule, a collaboration with the iconic film franchise James Bond.

The debut Fabergé x 007 capsule collection is inspired by the James Bond film Octopussy (1983) and includes a hand-crafted limited-edition egg object, and special edition egg surprise locket.

The news follows the initial partnership announcement in 2022 that revealed the forthcoming one-of-a-kind Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet.

Designed by Fabergé head of design, Liisa Tallgren, and overseen by Fabergé creative director, Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, the design of these pieces is a “symphony of past, present and future, with nods to the legendary Octopussy film”.

The hand-crafted Fabergé x 007 Limited Edition Octopussy Egg Objet is limited to just 50 numbered pieces and stands at 8.4cm tall, crafted from 18k yellow gold and hand-painted with a green enamel, carefully selected for its similarity to the enamel used on the Fabergé egg featured in the film Octopussy.

The egg also features a combination of Fabergé’s signature guilloché, accompanied by an “intricate” artwork of engraved octopus tentacles which mysteriously wrap around the egg. These tentacles feature minute detail, and provide a level of depth and intrigue to the piece.

The egg is mounted on a stand which is reminiscent of that featured on the Fabergé egg from the film, set with white diamonds and blue sapphires.

Fabergé said: “It was “perfectly fitting” that the debut collection takes inspiration from the iconic Octopussy (1983), which featured a plot line centred around an elaborate Fabergé egg heist. The application is a highly skilled technique which takes absolute precision and patience, and is so complex that one week’s work is reserved for this alone.”
