For him - the ultimate silver cufflinks. For her - hand-printed cashmere stoles of unrivalled elegance and purity of colour. Authentic accessories for car lovers, silverware for the home and office, and luggage for the most stylish of travellers. This season Bentley Motors unveils a fresh update of its Bentley Collection and Enthusiast Collection.
Made with the same precision to detail and attention to quality materials as Bentley's cars, the unique items in each collection make perfect seasonal gifts. The two collections, already on sale, bring together individual pieces crafted from the finest materials with something to appeal to all enthusiasts of exclusivity.
The Bentley Collection embraces a carefully edited selection of collectable items, silver gifts, fashion originals and motoring apparel. From leather flying helmets and goggles for open-top and vintage car driving, to city umbrellas for financial fellows, to golf bags you can be proud of, this collection has a timeless and luxurious quality.
The Enthusiast Collection commemorates the legendary "Bentley Boys" and their modern day successors - Team Bentley with a range of clothing and memorabilia all proudly sporting the Bentley logo. Children will be delighted with a Bentley playsuit, in the style of the 2003 Le Mans Bentley pit crew, that puts the play back into growing up.
"We have produced The Bentley Collection and The Enthusiast Collection with the same passion and inspiration that underpins our motoring heritage and success," explains Mark Tennant, PR and Marketing Director. "Like the cars we craft, each item has its own distinct feel, yet all undoubtedly are Bentley."
The silver collection contains refined, simply designed gifts including solid sterling cufflinks and picture frames that are typically understated and reassuringly refined. Finely polished walnut holders for jewellery have been created to mirror the wood veneers in Bentley cars, and there are watch boxes and a luxury humidor all made to the same exacting quality standards as the cars. The leather luggage is individually handmade by Alfred Dunhill of London and the leather accessories are handmade by Ettinger, which, like Bentley, has a Royal Warrant to supply goods to HRH Prince of Wales.
The full range of practical, yet stylish gifts can be viewed on the website www.bentleymotors.com and is available either from Bentley dealerships or from the website.Published 22 November 2005
