Jack Barclay and Huntsman make a bespoke model of the Bentley Mulliner
Bentley Motors is proud to attend the Savile Row Concours with two limited edition Mulliners. This bespoke and handcrafted edition was created in collaboration with Jack Barclay – Bentley’s oldest retailer – and renowned Savile Row tailor Huntsman. The Savile Row Concours celebrates the legacy and history of this prestigious London address and its connection to the automotive world. Every Hunter Edition car comes with an owner-specific Hunter jacket; made in one of Huntsman’s exclusive in-house fabrics.
The Bentayga Extended Wheelbase and Continental GTC Huntsman Edition feature a bespoke interior inspired by the fashion heritage of the renowned Savile Row sewing house. Huntsman’s Chief Cutter and Creative Director, Campbell Carey, works closely with Jack Barclay and the team at Mulliner to carefully translate Huntsman’s 174-year bespoke heritage into designs that compliment the interior of every car.
These models are equipped with unique Huntsman sewing. Distinctive fabric design features on both vehicles, with upholstery in Huntsman charcoal four point star design contrasting with honeycomb cross stitching. The iconic Huntsman logo and signature ‘H’ motif can be found embroidered on the headrests, and embossed on the tread plate, even the lock case received special treatment; inlaid with tweed and branded with the Huntsman logo. The result is two bespoke cars fit for the bespoke lifestyle.
Huntsman Creative Director, Campbell Carey, commented: “It is with great enthusiasm that we are reviving our illustrious partnership with Jack Barclay of Bentley, with two new Huntsman models. As Huntsman’s Chief Cutter and Creative Director, it’s always a pleasure to work alongside bespoke artisans in other industries. Working closely with the team at Bentley Mulliner, we have created an exclusive collection of cars that reflect the iconic styles of Bentley and Huntsman and strike a harmonious balance between sophistication and luxury with world-class engineering and innovation.”
Huntsman Edition customers will be invited to visit Huntsman’s historic Savile Row premises to select their fabric and undergo a measurement session to ensure their jacket is made to their exact requirements. Two Hunter Edition examples are part of a collection of 1 in 5 of each model. In the truest sense of bespoke; each issue will be individually styled and tailored to the customer’s needs, with the customer being able to influence many aspects of the Huntsman edition. Any potentially interested customer will be able to put together their own Huntsman edition by contacting the team at Jack Barclay.
