More than 300 new items that embody the essence of the Bentley brand will be unveiled on September 15 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. With unparalleled craftsmanship and incredible attention to detail, the Collection for men and women highlights all aspects of the modern Bentley lifestyle
Bentley’s Continental range of leather bags has been extended to include three accessories: a briefcase in versions for both men and women and a weekender bag. The Continental briefcase has two zipped pockets arranged symmetrically on the main front panel, which has recognisable origins in the Bentley wings logo. Cross-stitched handles echo the stitching seen on each Continental GT steering wheel, a tactile reminder of the inspiration behind the collection.
The ladies’ briefcase has been designed to complement the Barnato and Continental handbags, with a shape that combines the features of both a Boston bag and a briefcase. The result is a spacious business case that can also be used as an overnight bag. The interior comprises two compartments, one for clothing and personal items, and another for business use. A central compartment provides easy yet secure access to wallets, phones and other essential items. Soft travel bags are available individually or as a four piece luggage set, made specifically to stow easily in the Bentayga luggage compartment. These can be ordered either in Beluga or commissioned to match the interior leather on your car.
The Style collection includes the much-coveted Bentley Handbag collection: the Continental handbag, named after the iconic Bentley GT, is reinvented in a new, smaller size, which is introduced alongside the original Continental and Barnato handbags. New colours refresh the collection for Autumn.
Drawn from Bentley’s extended colour palette, Burnt Oak, Portland, and Dark Sapphire are subtle tones which provide a more muted yet luxurious colour palette with which to usher in the new season. Also within the Style collection is a new range of scarves. The design showcases many design features and landmarks drawn from the world of Bentley which form an abstract print, and a sophisticated addition to any outfit.
An equestrian blanket crafted from cashmere forms one of the highlights of the range of luxurious home accessories. The blanket comes in hues of Camel and Portland to provide a cosy addition to any room, or alternatively the throw offers a stylish layer to take with you when attending the outdoor events of autumn.
A Bentley photo frame designed in Portland leather and chrome edging will make a stylish addition to any room, while the aroma of vintage leather can now be experienced with a scented candle. A unique handmade desk clock, crafted by the experts at Breitling in Piano Black, joins the Burr Walnut desk clock in the Collection, and is evocative of the craftsmanship seen within a Bentley.
The spirit and flair of the Bentley Boys in the 1920s provides endless inspiration for the Heritage collection, which celebrates Bentley’s rich history. and includes quintessentially British shades such as Racing Green and Dark Sapphire are used, while a modern interpretation of Tim Birkin’s own ‘Birkin Spot’ motif accents the range.
Inspiring items in the heritage collection include a weekender race bag and a race back pack, both a functional and stylish interpretation of the heritage theme. Both accessories feature the number nine – a number with special significance for Bentley. It was used to identify what became one of the most famous Bentleys ever built: the supercharged 4.5 Litre ‘Blower’ that Bentley Boy Tim Birkin drove at Le Mans in 1930. The Blower is seen again in scarf form, which features the famous racer in luxurious cashmere, resulting in a stylish accessory for the modern day Bentley aficionado.
