Made from rich grain bullskin, the 167 mini takes on a pastel sky blue shade. An elegant handbag with a refined profile, the 167 is a re-imagining of a handbag from the Asprey archives. Its distinctive trapezium shape is inspired by the line of ocean liners, from the golden age of ocean cruising. The 167 Collection is named after the store at 167 New Bond Street that was home to Asprey’s flagship store for more than 200 years before its recent move to 36 Bruton Street celebrating its 240th anniversary.
This 167 Mini is embellished with a handcrafted tassel & howlite stone and has a wide decorated shoulder strap, it features a finely engraved front clasp, metal feet on the base, detachable shoulder strap, kid suede interior & zip & slip pockets inside. Polished palladium finish hardware.
Asprey uses European hides to create the bullskin, traditionally tanned and drum-dyed to create a leather that is supple and resistant. The colours are rich, transparent and deep and the finishing reveals the true beauty of the natural grain. Maintain the beauty of your Asprey bullskin handbag to ensure it endures though time. Avoid direct contact with heat, water, light & oil, as well as any situation that is either too humid or dry. Wipe away any moisture as soon as possible. When not in use, replace the custom-made kid suede cushion provided inside the handbag to hold its shape, and store your bullskin & nubuck handbag in the dust bag provided and in a clean, dry, temperate atmosphere. Commercial care products are not kind to Asprey bullskin handbags. A soft dry cloth is sufficient to maintain the beauty of the leather. The nubuck can be cleaned with a suede & nubuck cleaning block.
