WHAT IS CHIC SPY DAY?
Agents of Chic™ are invited to celebrate the style of onscreen spies on October 5th. Last year we launched the inaugural Chic Spy™ Day to celebrate the style of fictional and onscreen spies in popular culture around the world. October 5th was chosen as the date to commemorate onscreen spy style because it is the date the first Bond film, Dr. No (1962), premiered in London starring Sean Connery as British Secret Service agent 007. Known as much for his impeccable style as his daring exploits, who doesn’t recall Bond in one of his tailored tuxes famously requesting a martini “shaken, not stirred”? James Bond may be the chicest onscreen spy of all time – just ask the Brits – but there are many more to love on the big and small screen. The characters may be fictional, but their style is real.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN THE MISSION?
Fans of onscreen spies and their style are encouraged to flaunt their spy style savvy. The possibilities are limitless including, dressing covertly in espionage essentials from a trench coat and oversized sunnies to leather driving gloves. Another fun way to celebrate the day is to throw a sleuth soiree and serve Covert Cocktails. A movie marathon of spy movies and TV shows is a fabulous way to spend the day. "Mission: Impossible III" (2006) and "Alias" (2001-2006) are both on Netflix! Maybe you're a gamer! Why not orchestrate the ultimate assassin game with your BFFs? Last, but not least, have a selfie photo shoot styled in a look reminiscent of your favorite onscreen spy. Don't forget to tag @TheChicSpy and #ChicSpyDay on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—we just might share your posts. Chic Spy™ Day is listed in Days of the Year and Time and Date calendars. Stay tuned for the big day and join in with us for the countdown!
