The managing director of Bollinger is pictured in the house of Lily Bollinger, who promoted the brand internationally for thirty years from 1941. The connection with the red of Bollinger’s packaging is clearly apparent, from the sofa, lampshades, and above all, Jérôme’s tie. Subtler however, are the two bottles on the cushion to Jérôme’s right. Lying on their side, they are intended to represent the double zero of 007, the code name of James Bond, the famous fictional character who favoured Bollinger.
