The iconic Gleneagles Hotel, Perthshire, has taken a step forward into the world of luxury accessories, with the launch of an exclusive new range of leather goods. The Gleneagles Collection will be available to purchase from April 2015 in the resort’s retail arcade – home to brands such as Escada, Hawico and Dunhill – and online, shipping globally.
Key items include The Traveller Holdall and shoe bag in rich brown Italian leather (from £285) perfect for golf enthusiasts’ travelling needs. The 1924 wallet, embossed with the distinctive Gleneagles crest and crackle (£90) is set to become a Gleneagles staple accessory. The Riviera Handbag, which comes in cream, brown and black hand-crafted leather (£450) is also a great leather product for ladies.
Alyson Lilley, Gleneagles’ Head of Retail, said “We are thrilled to be able to unveil The Gleneagles Collection. The accessories we’ve created are timeless, inspired by the many guests who, going back over 90 years, have made Gleneagles their home from home – now they’ll be able to take a little piece of Gleneagles with them, wherever they go. The names are a nod to our history and heritage – for example, the Riviera handbag originated when we looked back at old newspaper reports and found we were known as ‘the Riviera in the Highlands’ when we first opened back in the early Twenties.”
