What Is Casino Royale Style? How has it influenced the modern fashion industry?

Casino Royale style is more about your image as you step into that local casino. When you choose a Casino Royale style, you have to forget about just wearing attire for the sake of it. Instead, the subject closely focuses on the image created for approval as people walk across the sophisticated gaming establishment. 

The best way to understand this is to look at the James Bond film Casino Royale which perfectly captures this extravagance. The film shows us how James Bond that we know today evolves thanks to his clothing. We get to see him change from a cocky and careless character to a well-polished and sharp agent. He best captures the unspoken rule that there is a certain way you should dress when you walk into your local casino

This is a unique feature amongst all casinos, whether big or small. The journey from your wardrobe to the casino is one that you do not want to mess up with. As many come in for an enjoyable gaming session, they are also on the lookout for fashion inspiration. 

The Casino Royale style establishes that you are expected to be in elegant outfits, jewels, and killer shoes when you visit a land-based casino. Formal attire is a crucial requirement for this kind of setup. It is a way to show who the boss is. 

No Caps in Casinos

Most casinos, if not all, have strict rules as far as caps, shorts, and open shoes are concerned. They strictly prohibit visitors from wearing such outfits. Luckily, both women and men have enough lead in James Bond movies to help guide their elegant clothing. 

Dressing for the night out is one of the many things that you should look out for when the word casino is mentioned. It gives you an opportunity to reveal your character through your choice of style. Even if you plan to play no download free demo slots online from the comfort of your home, you can still get inspired by a classy outfit thanks to Casino Royale.

As far as women are concerned, going to the casino is more than just looking for an exciting gaming experience. It is an opportunity to play dress up. And if she decides to go big by playing real money casino games, she is sure to have everyone’s eyes locked on her. 

Mid-Blue Suits

The impact of Casino Royale on the fashion industry has been unsurmountable. For a long time, men tended to stick to charcoal suits and bland black suits. However, that appears to have drifted in favor of mid-blue suits that James Bond appears on several occasions. 

These types of suits may appear decidedly darker on screen than in real life due to the character’s color grading. As much as light brown shoes often serve as the main companions to these types of shoes, Bond establishes that classic and formal black shoes are equally a thing to consider. 

Ivory Dinner Jackets 

One of the most iconic Casino Royale styles that you cannot afford to ignore is encapsulated by ivory dinner jackets. Whereas society has traditionally limited men to wear these kinds of outfits for specific locales and seasons, men today choose not to let others dictate their dressing patterns. That explains the spike in the number of men wearing ivory dinner jackets since they first hit the screens. 

Of course, designers have been creative enough to introduce several iterations on the buttons, lapels, and many other sections. 

Accessories 

Casino Royale style has defined how women perceive accessories and their respective match for the chosen outfit. Accessories have the power to steal the spotlight or ruin the moment. Any lady dressing to impress has learned the need to strike the right balance between accessories and their overall outfit. 

Men have equally learned that throwing in some accessories can complement their overall look. James Bond glasses are the main point of focus here, but he also introduces cufflinks and gold lighter that are worth considering.

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

The 2022 FIFA World Cup just kicked off in Qatar, where Africa is being represented by Cameroon, Ghana, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia.

For most Africans, the tournament is a platform that reinforces continental unity, helping bridge the gap between Africans on the continent, and Diasporans globally. Since 2010, when South Africa became the first African country to host the tournament, 54 Kingdoms embarked on a creative journey of designing collections inspired by the United African vision engineered by the honorable Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Forward Ever, Backward Never is the final World Cup collection by 54 Kingdoms as the company reaches the last phase of its unity design blueprint. The blueprint, which is primarily inspired by Pan-African giants, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Marcus Garvey ― aims to give the continent a larger vision of itself via four main themes: Educate, Unite, Build and Progress. Each collection is tied to a theme dating back to Homecoming in 2010 (Educate), Score for Unity in 2014 (Unite), and Goal 54 in 2018 (Build).

“This is a bittersweet moment for us. As storytellers, one of the hardest things is to write an ending for any story, and unfortunately the end has come for our World Cup collection series. This creative journey started with inspiration from Dr. Nkrumah and will end with him. Hence, a collection paying homage to one of his profound statements, Forward Ever, Backward Never” ~ Kwaku Awuah, 54 Kingdoms President.

In the Progress phase, the Forward Ever, Backward Never (FEBN) design seeks to echo Nkrumah’s larger vision of a united and developed Africa free of any form of colonial rule. However, ‘Forward Ever, Backward Never’ also means Africa shouldn’t bemoan its past misdeeds all the time; we should forge ahead, but when a similar challenge resurfaces, we look back and remind ourselves that we shouldn’t make the same mistake again.

Throughout this tournament, Forward Ever, Backward Never is a reminder to Africa’s representatives to push forward even when it seems impossible, and never look back!

The Forward Ever, Backward Never is a limited edition collection available for pre-orders on November 23, 2022 with expected shipment starting on December 9, 2022. More details will be updated on the 54 Kingdoms website soon!
