The Iconic Classics collection of refined apparel and luxurious accessories embodies the essence of the Bentley marque with a new range of ladies’ handbags, to be launched at IAA 2017 in Frankfurt on Tuesday 12th September.
Drawing on the craftsmanship for which Bentley is renowned, and echoing the sleek, contemporary lines of the Continental GT, each sumptuous handbag has been meticulously crafted to exude sublime style and elegance. Subtle features, including leather cross-stitching and the unmistakable matrix grille pattern, discreetly echo the inimitable design of Bentley’s celebrated grand tourer.
Bentley sources the finest Italian leather for its handbags and leather goods, handcrafted by skilled Tuscan artisans. Renowned as a world centre of the finest quality leather production the area between Florence and Pisa continues traditional processes today, with leather being cut, fitted, sewn and stitched by highly skilled artisans in “pelletterie” workshops.
Each bag takes between 15 and 20 hours to create, typically using 1.5 to 2 square meters of leather and incorporating impeccably fitted handbag frames. The exquisite cross-stitching detail is executed by hand, an extension of the meticulous artistry found within Bentley’s car interiors. With the price range of $2,165 – $3,840, the collection include Mary P Bag, Mini Mary P Bag, Mary P Tote Bag, Diana B Handbag and Diana B Clutch.
All Bentley’s leather goods bear a hallmark of unsurpassed quality and excellence, mirroring Bentley’s own commitment to the highest standards of luxury.
