executed for the Continental handbag model in patent leather with a deep
Burgundy interior. The Barnato handbag comes in an Imperial Blue exterior with
Linen panels, a Linen interior accented with Imperial Blue pockets.
historic colours include Dragon Red drawn from the Continental GT V8, also
executed in patent leather; and Cumbrian Green, which glances back to the
renowned Bentley Blower model executed in combined patent and smooth leather.
It replicates the traditional 1930’s design where the car body was part paint,
part trimmed in leather.
Ariane Reinhart, member of the board of Bentley Motors, comments: “The colours
are strong and exciting. We want to bring accents of daring colour into a
woman’s wardrobe. The shades emphasise an aspect of the true Bentley personality,
which a new generation of female customers can enjoy in their daily lives. The
new handbag colours are complemented by the new silk scarves and bring the
refined luxury and bespoke elements of a Bentley to a wider female audience.” To
