ASPREY IN FILM
Since 1781, Asprey has continuously defined British Luxury on the basis of its core values of quality, refinement and innovation. Asprey’s collection of short films perfectly capture the essence and magic of this heritage, and showcase its contemporary interpretation.
THE COSMIC COLLECTION
Discovery has been the source of Asprey’s spirit since its inception, with its founders exploring the globe to seek out the best artisans and source the finest luxury goods, underpinning Asprey’s inspiration for the new jewellery collection, Cosmic. The remarkable characteristics of the Cosmos have influenced the modern jewellery designs in forms of rockets, planets and satellite inspired motifs realised in 18ct white and yellow gold, some carved with onyx and lapis, juxtaposed with an eclectic array of bright precious stones.
THE SPRING SUMMER COLLECTION 2018
In celebration of the Asprey boutique's twenty-year anniversary at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Asprey presents the Spring Summer 2018 collection. Inspired by the illustrious property, 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. These designs 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.
THE WOODLAND COLLECTION
Charms intricately set with gemstones, delicately detailed with bright enamel, all realised in 18 carat gold, the Woodland Charm collection brings to life the whimsical wonders of the British Woodland. The collection also lends itself to designs featuring the Oak Leaf motif on necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings all in 18ct yellow and white gold speckled with diamond details.
THE AUTUMN WINTER COLLECTION 2017
Inspired by the magical nature of the Kenyan landscape with rich earth tones combined with hues of brightly coloured precious stones, the collection introduces a new lattice pattern; a unique and innovative technique whereby lacquer is expertly applied to soft leather by hand.
THE SPRING COLLECTION 2017
Asprey's Spring Handbag collection is captured in this short and playful film, featuring Asprey's signatures styles realised in a Spring colour palette of Dove, Clover and Forget-Me-Not.
EVERY GIFT HAS A STORY
Asprey's romantic yet fun film set in the Langham Hotel, London, centres around the Asprey Purple Gift Box, filmed for Valentine's Day.
Asprey’s iconic window display completes Bond Street’s festive decorations and is beautifully captured in this film which portrays London’s bustling streets, serene wintery moments and interspersed with edits from the brand film ‘The Journey’. This year’s store façade is inspired by the film, lit with screens and twinkling fairy lights marking the outline of the train sweeping through the British Countryside and further illustrated with shelves housing Asprey’s most revered gift suggestions for the holiday season.
THE ASPREY SWAN THE ROSALINDE AND ARTHUR GILBERT COLLECTION
The magnificent Asprey Swan has been displayed at the V&A Museum this month, exhibited within The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Collection. The collection the couple amassed became one of the most important and comprehensive in the world, driven by a love of skilled craft and design in gold and silver objects. This sterling silver life size Swan was made in Asprey's London workshops in 1985 with partially gilded and patinated silver and platinum. The swan took pride of place at Arthur and Rosalinde's villa in Los Angeles, either placed on a central sideboard or dinner table. Today, this magnificent bird has become a mascot of the Gilbert Collection.
The Journey, Asprey's latest film, majestically sweeping through the British countryside and beyond, towards a destination unknown, filled with anticipation and excitement at every turn, for that magical unravelling of the ribbon that finally reveals the gift in the purple box.
NEW SEASON HANDBAGS
Asprey’s heritage in leather originates from the 19th century, with the creation of traditional dress cases suitable for the new style of travel ushered in by streamliners and railways. As times changed, Asprey’s evening bags were favoured by the young and exuberant flapper dancers of the Charleston Era.
The film captures the supple and tactile nature of the new season handbags, filmed through several London locations including the city, Shoreditch and Mayfair, showcasing the elegant and modern silhouettes realised in a variety of leathers.
BORN TO DREAM
Asprey's debut brand film, Born to Dream, demonstrates the romance, theatre and timeless appeal of Asprey today. Under the direction of a new British film director and artist, Ali Walker the film follows the journey of a young woman's dream, intercut with panoramic iconic shots of the London landscape and details of Asprey's jewellery collections.
THE PURSUIT OF PERFECTION
