Aston Martin Helmet Bag and Holdall

Aug 3rd, 2016

THE BRIEF

Having spotted a Caracalla helmet bag at Autosport International in 2015, Aston Martin invited us to talk about a special project they're working on – a limited edition Aston Martin car, called the Vulcan (named after the famous plane). Just 24 have been produced for the global market, costing £2m each (already sold).

THE REQUIREMENTS

Design/manufacture the ultimate helmet bag and driver’s kit bag to complement the car.

OUR RESPONSE

Our design team created a helmet bag made with black shoulder leather on outer pieces, black carbon effect leather on base, and front/rear panels in black Alcantara® fabric, as used in the Vulcan cars themselves.

Stitching of each individual bag selected to match the exact colour of the individual cars (in total, eight different colours selected). Inner part of both bags is made with black diamond quilted Alcantara® fabric, the diamond shape the exact same size as that used in the car.
