A Night at the Casino Royale

“I was inspired to create A Night at the Casino Royale when I found this original 1950s tuxedo shirt at a vintage store.  Since the original Casino Royale book, by Ian Fleming, was published in 1953, it seemed fitting to create one of my ‘Boyfriend Shirt’ series, alluding to a fleeting moment with James Bond”.

 

Tucked inside the shirt are cherry blossoms to represent the fragility and fleeting nature of a passionate moment with Bond.  The necklace and cufflink are copies of the jewellery worn in the movie of Casino Royale.
