If you've ever wanted to own a piece of the luxury car brand Bentley Motors, now's your chance. The automobile brand just released a line of one-of-a-kind line of luxury handbags, available now at Towbin Motorcars.
And these babies come with prices to match. First up, the Barnato, named after former Bentley chairman Woolf Barnato's daughter Diana Barnato, a legendary English aviatrix, Red Cross nurse and equestrian. The $7,000 handbag comes in four styles and colors, including Neptune Blue, Linen and Black Onyx, St. James Red and Onyx Black Patent Leather. Inside find a rectangular vanity mirror that has the Bentley wings embossed on the front. Look for a clutch-style closure with a raised square clasp and the Bentley curling on the face.
The Continental handbag, priced at $5,500, comes in four styles and colors, including Imperial Blue and Neptune Blue, Damson and Linen, St. James Red and Onyx Black Patent Leather, was named after one of Bentley's model lines and has a quilted red lamb skin interior with a sleek black leather exterior. Bespoke buckle and split side panels were inspired by the interior dashboard and shape of Bentley vehicles.
Each of the 160 handbags created for this new collection features a metal plaque commemorating its individual number. The plaque can be personalized to the owner and their Bentley vehicle. A waterproof pouch comes equipped with each purse as well.
