Margaret Thatcher's Handbags
Margaret Thatcher was famous for her beautiful handbags. Her black Asprey bag was at her side during some of the most important summits with President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.
Named after Greenwich Mean Time, the GMT Collection embodies the spirit of British explorers and adventurers. As Great Britain developed into an advanced maritime nation, British seafarers kept at least one chronometer set to GMT in order to calculate their longitude relative to the Greenwich Meridian of zero degrees.
A core collection at Asprey's, GMT is inspired by the modern day equivalent of those explorers. The leathers and materials used combine purpose and functionality with a quiet, discreet luxury. Bullskin and Nubuck Bullskin are simultaneously strong and soft. Being highly durable, it is a type of leather that improves with age and wear.
