In celebration of the Asprey boutique’s twenty-year anniversary at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Asprey has collaborated with Dorchester Collection to present the Spring Summer 2018 handbags, inspired by the illustrious property. Steeped in legendary history, The Beverly Hills Hotel has remained a beloved reflection of Hollywood’s Golden Age for over 100 years. With its familiar pink façade, cabana stripe, banana-leaf wallpaper and iconic logo, the signature aesthetic of the treasured Californian landmark served as the ideal design inspiration and setting for the new collection.
The signature design elements of The Beverly Hills Hotel are skilfully reflected in Asprey’s unique handbag styles. The recognisable bold and vibrant print of the waving banana palms, intrinsically linked to the hotel, are expertly applied to soft leather by hand, featured on the Belle and Taylor styles. The distinctive and famed Cabana stripe is also presented by contrasting applique stripes, realised across the Morgan 18, Taylor Mini and 1781 Pochette styles. Asprey’s distinctive silhouettes are featured in sumptuous hues such as hand painted sunset crocodile, rose petal and luxurious champagne, colours also derived from the inspiring Californian landmark. The collection also features the new 167 Pochette and 167 26cm, as well as the new elegant Tote featuring a horsehair panel completing this season’s offering. The collection exudes an effortless and elegant Hollywood style fitting with Asprey’s design aesthetic. Dorchester Collection and Asprey’s relationship perfectly celebrates the twenty-year relationship at The Beverly Hills Hotel, demonstrating a shared ethos of unrivalled luxury, quality and creativity.
