Bentley will be unveiling their refreshed line of capsule handbag collection for spring 2014 during the Geneva Motor Show on March 4th, the company announced. 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.
Colors pallet includes 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, in this instance used in combined patent and smooth leather. Other color combinations used include Saffron/Linen, Imperial Blue/Linen, Portland/Pillar Box Red, Saddle/Linen.
“The colors are strong and exciting. We want to bring accents of daring color into a woman’s wardrobe,” Dr Ariane Reinhart, member of the board of Bentley Motors, commented.
Bentley press release notes “The silk scarves depict architectural and natural landscape features in an abstract pattern. Within the scarf images are featured the Jacobean mansion of Crewe Hall, the historic estate of Tatton Park and the renowned façade of Bentley’s factory.”
The Continental comes with a price tag of $5,500, the Barnato $7,000 and silk scarves are priced at $278.
