Asprey's SS'18 Purse Collection Is Inspired by the Iconic Beverly Hills Hotel
Attention, purse lovers: the ultimate spring/summer bag collection is officially here, and it's inspired by none other than The Beverly Hills Hotel! The historic property, which has been a favorite amongst Hollywood elite for more than 100 years, is one of the most Instagrammable hotspots in L.A., from its pink walls to its signature banana leaf wallpaper. And now there's a line of stylish purses to go along with it!
We recently attended the launch party for the exciting collaboration, which was held in the hotel's Bar Nineteen12. Asprey London, which was established in 1781, is famous for its handmade luxury goods of the highest quality, craftsmanship and design. Their latest collection of handbags were inspired by the brand's 20-year residency at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Asprey's unique handbag styles skillfully reflect The Beverly Hills Hotel's signature design elements. The bold and vibrant banana palms are applied to soft leather by hand, featured on the Belle and Taylor styles. The famous Cabana stripe is also presented by contrasting applique stripes as seen on the Morgan 18, Taylor Mini and 1781 Pochette styles.
"Our signature banana leaf print continues to make generations of guests nostalgic for The Beverly Hills Hotel," says General Manager Edward Mady. "If anyone doubts the emotional attachment one can have to wallpapered hallways, they have not met our guests, and this stylish new Asprey bag collection will really have sentimental value to so many."
The SS'18 collection also includes a range of sumptuous hues derived from the hotel, including hand-painted sunset crocodile, rose petal and luxurious champagne. The collection also features the new 167 Pochette and 167 26cm styles, in addition to the new elegant Tote featuring a horsehair panel. The line is available exclusively in the Asprey boutique located on the ground floor of The Beverly Hills Hotel. For more information, visit dorchestercollection.com.
