Bentley draws inspiration from its signature bespoke hide combinations

by 03 March 2014

For Bentley enthusiasts, the luxury automaker has announced a new range of colours for its capsule handbag collection that will go on sale at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4.

Influenced by modern technology and representing the ultimate expression of luxury and refinement, the collection comprises two handbag models – the Continental and the Barnato bags.

The Continental is offered in a Special Ivory, derived from Bentley’s 1952 Continental R-Type, in patent leather with a deep Burgundy interior.

The Barnato handbag, on the other hand, is offered in an Imperial Blue exterior with linen panels, a linen interior accented with Imperial Blue pockets.

Classical historic colours include Dragon Red derived from the Continental GT V8, in patent leather; and Cumbrian Green, which replicates the renowned Bentley Blower model featured in combined patent and smooth leather, recalling the traditional 1930’s design where the car body was part paint, part trimmed in leather.

The luxury carmaker has also launched a collection of silk scarves featuring abstract patterns including the Jacobean mansion of Crewe Hall, the historic estate of Tatton Park and the renowned façade of Bentley’s factory, while the more traditional silk scarves feature modern interpretations of a compass, a composition of Bentley’s wings logo, a map of the world and a dial from a Bentley dashboard.
