Bond Moments with Gillette and SPECTRE

At some point in a man’s life there can and will be a bond moment, in one way or another. Gillette have partnered up with the highly anticipated new 007 movie SPECTRE, to bring out the secret agent lying dormant in every man.

We have long been big fans of Gillette and everything they do, to give the best a man can get. Team Maketh were invited out by the Gillette team to the Bond in motion exhibition after hours, in order to uncover their campaign plans on the grooming world. In good Bond fashion, we were led to a secret entrance in the Covent Garden square, leading into lower levels of the exhibition.

Our favourites out of the range were the BMW 7 series used in Tomorrow never dies and of course, the Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger.
