Aspinal of London meets Murder on the Orient Express

Aspinal of London revealed is Spring/Summer 2018 collection at an exclusive event at London’s Claridge’s Hotel. With what looked like a full-sized steam locomotive bursting through one of the walls, the venue was transformed into a virtual train with guests invited to sit down in one of its compartment to enjoy champagne and cakes while watching the countryside whiz past outside the windows.

Celebrating the golden era and romance of luxury travel and the Grand European Tour of years gone by, Aspinal re-explores classic styles and introduces a beautiful new range of products with a nostalgic nod to the past. Aspinal’s exotic colour palette for Spring/Summer features muted lilac, sage, camel and tan, with bright pops of dahlia, orchid, cherry and blue moon, through to classic black, gold and ivory; adding its own inimitable personality to classic pieces with mini croc and tortoiseshell prints, patent, Aspinal’s signature deep shine croc and a touch of opulent velvet.

Staying with the luxury travel theme, one exclusive Aspinal of London collection is a collaboration in honour of the release of 20th Century Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express (in cinemas November). This lavish Hollywood retelling of Agatha Christie’s classic novel, starring Kenneth Branagh as Detective Hercule Poirot, as well as Johnny Depp as Ratchett, Penelope Cruiz as Pilar Estravados and Dame Judi Dench as Princess Dragomiroff, takes viewers on a lavish trip through Europe, which quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder on the iconic train.

To stay true to the understated elegance and style of this period, Aspinal’s chosen colours for this collection are a perfect combination of classic ivory and soft camel, using the highest quality Italian leathers, with a splash of colour for the elegant scarf range featuring artwork by award-winning textile artist Emma Shipley.
