Bentley has created a line of capsule handbags to compliment their luxury vehicles. The spring 2014 collection launched on March 4th at the Geneva Motor Show just in time for Ladies of Leisure preparing for their summer vacations and lux road trips.
The collection will feature two models of handbags – the Continental and the Barnato in a rich color palette that celebrates Bentley’s “pure” color collection with references to Bentley’s signature bespoke hide combinations. The capsule also includes a silk scarf collection.
Color pallets include a Special Ivory borrowed from the 1952 Continental R-Type made from patent leather with matching deep Burgundy interior. Another classic color is the Dragon Red from the Continental GT V8 also in patent leather. There is also the Cumbrian Green from the Bentley Blower model that combines patent and smooth leather. Other color combinations used include Saffron/Linen, Imperial Blue/Linen, Portland/Pillar Box Red, Saddle/Linen.
The price point and retail outlets for the bags have not yet been released. Watch this space for an update!
