Mercedes Benz Collection: Autumn & Early Winter Highlights 2018
The days are becoming shorter and early morning fogs hangs over the fields before the sun illuminates the landscape for an Indian summer. For this autumnal transition period with cold nights and the last warm days, Mercedes-Benz has sporty jackets and polo shirts as well as accessories in its autumn & early winter Collection to allow you to enjoy the season outdoors, no matter what the weather is like.
The most important piece in this changeover period is a jacket suitable for the various different temperatures. The Mercedes-Benz Collection has several sporty pieces for this autumn. The navy men’s jacket with elaborate workmanship and fashionable details is a dynamic all-rounder for countryside outings or city trips. Mercedes-Benz diamond radiator grille inspired Design elements, as well as front and back yokes made of structural material, split cuffs made of outer material and striped ribs are real eye catchers. In addition, the jacket is wind-proof and has a high-closable collar with integrated hood.
The black men’s 2-in-1 cabriolet jacket is not only for cabrio owners. This jacket can be made suitable to any deviations in temperature from early morning ‘til late evening. It consists of a gilet and outer jacket that can be worn either in combination or separately. A light padding, sleeve cuffs as wind deflectors, various pockets and the wind and water-repellent materials ensure maximum functionality. Visually, the sporty 2-in-1 cabriolet jacket impresses with its removable zip-off, high-closing fur collar and a metal badge in the shape of the vintage Mercedes star logo on the upper right sleeve.
With the black rain jacket you are always equipped for that unexpected shower or downpour. Thanks to polyurethane coating and fused stitching in the shoulder area, you can rely on this wind-proof jacket to keep you dry and warm. The breathable mesh lining proves comfortable to wear, with adjustable cuffs and an elastic cord with stoppers on the seam providing extra support. The rain jacket also has zip pockets and a hood which packs away comfortably into the collar when not in use. There is another zipped pocket on the back, in which the entire jacket can be folded into. The jacket is also supplied with a practical jacket bag.
The Mercedes-Benz Collection also presents a black high-sheen nylon jacket with fashionable quilted detail for women. Particularly eye-catching are the plum-coloured contrasts on the front zipper and on the zip pockets. The lightweight padding and the detachable drawstring hood will keep you warm on cooler days and combines functionality with feminine details.
Polo shirts are classic items that adapt to every style. Manufactured in pleasant cotton piqué, the men’s polo shirt in navy comes with off-white neck band and collar band. Fashionable details include the vintage Mercedes star logo badge on the front chest and the Mercedes branded buttons. The dark-red slim fit polo shirt sets the autumn tone with contrasts in navy, woven stripes in the collar and cuffs, bi-colour buttons and radiator grille design elements on the side band and collar. In addition to the polo shirts, the Collection also highlights a classic round neck T-shirt in black or white, each with grey details and a discreet Mercedes logo embroidery on the chest.
Gold-coloured Swarovski® crystals on the vintage star on the chest area as well as golden Mercedes lettering on the right sleeve distinguish the slim-fit polo shirt for women. It comes in black or red. The alternative, the classic navy polo shirt, gets its special optics through an all-over print with Mercedes-Benz lettering and laurel branches, raglan sleeves with glossy embroidery in the shape of a laurel branch, as well as the 1926 classic logo badge embossed in glossy yarn on the back with Mercedes lettering.
Any autumnal fashion outfit needs the right accessories, including high-quality sunglasses in Maybach design for when the sun is low in the sky. Whether the women’s buffalo horn sunglasses with high-quality Carl Zeiss lenses or the modern interpretation of the aviator model for men – the Maybach Sunglasses Collection impresses with exceptional materials and all the attributes of optical artistry.
The elegantly flattering classic scarf for women is made of pure silk and pleasantly warms the neck on cooler autumn and early winter evenings. The square scarf design predominantly features white, gold, dark brown and black colours. The design incorporates the first Mercedes, the first Mercedes logo and the Classic logo decorate the scarf. Pair the scarf with the large brown shopper featuring a large embroidered Classic logo. The big classic shopper in brown with a big classic logo can be easily combined with the scarf for a city stroll. This practical shopper with a zip pocket is worn on ribbed handles and has an inside pocket that is also secured with a zipper.
The black Mercedes rucksack is an indispensable companion piece at any time of year. Its timeless design captivates not least on account of the noble cowhide applications and the Mercedes star rivets. Of particular value are the “inner values” and compartments that offer a maximum level of flexibility and functionality. As a 2-in-1 model, it can be worn as backpack or – with the straps stowed in the back – as a bag. Various inner and outer compartments ensure everything has its place, and a separate laptop compartment makes the safe transport of a computer possible. The padded rear section ensures comfortable carrying, and on your travels with additional luggage you can fasten the rucksack to a trolley or suitcase.
In the Mercedes-Benz watch collection for the Classic Glamour women model with stainless-steel case and calfskin strap really catches the eye. In the black dial are eight white Swarovski® crystals as hour indices and a sparkling circle of black Swarovski® Crystal Fine Rocks in the centre below the silver luminous hands.
The men’s collection includes both the round and the Carré form. The chronograph classic retro gold watch impresses with its stainless steel case in rosé gold-coloured PVD coating, silver-coloured dial and brown leather band with crocodile-skin appearance. Hour and minute markers as well as the rosé gold-coloured hands have luminous detail so that you can easily read the time in the dark. In addition, this chronograph watch has a stop function and is water resistant to 5 ATMs. The classic Carré model impresses with its square stainless steel case and black face with sunray polish. The sunray polish causes the light falling on the watch to shift around the dial according to the angle of incidence. There are silver-coloured numerals, hour markers and hands on the dark face as well as a vintage Mercedes star logo. A coarse-grained calfskin strap featuring white top-stitching perfects the masculine look of the watch.
As the cool day draws to a close and dinner is announced outside at the warming fire or inside by the cosy fireplace, a glass of wine is just the thing for connoisseurs. The Mercedes-Benz Collection offers just the right accessories for this occasion: in the brown leather box of the wine set you will find a stainless steel waiter corkscrew and a wine stopper with a head made from painted wood in the form of the 300 SL gear knob. The wine stopper from the Classic Collection, on the other hand, has an antique silver bonnet Mercedes star over a cork stopper.
