Bentley Dabbles In Handbag Design
They make fab leather seats in their flashy cars, so it’s only a natural progression that Bentley is trying its hand at handbags, non? While the boys can prove their manliness with horsepower and all that jazz, ladies can scoop up the two styles in this feature collection, which is presented in a range of colors based on Bentley paint finishes. The Barnato bag was inspired by longtime Bentley customer and English aviatrix, Diana Barnato-Walker, while the second design, The Continental, simply borrows its name from the car model. The bags are the result of fine teamwork between the head of Bentley product design, Daniele Ceccomori, and designer Vincent du Sartel, who’s practiced his craft at both Louis Vuitton and Lowe. Vroom, vroom!
