Barneys New York is tightening its clutch on Aspinal of London.
The British leather goods and accessories brand launches its AW19 collection at Barneys stores on Madison Avenue in New York and in Beverly Hills this week, in a step up from selling the brand’s capsule collection with Giles Deacon — Giles x Aspinal — last November.

Barneys will display various Aspinal of London’s signature styles including the “Lion” mini Trunk bag, considered a bestseller.
The collection has an autumnal color palette of bordeaux, evergreen, orange, blue, black and ivory, while textural combinations vary from patent printed croc leather, to rich velvet panels with intricate hand-embroidered flowers.
“Aspinal’s bags have the British heritage with an updated modern touch,” said Marina Larroude, Barneys vice president and fashion director. She credited Giles Deacon, the design director of Aspinal of London, for adding novelty and newness to the most classical styles.
“The U.S.A. is a key international market for us and we are excited by the prospect of continued growth in this region, both direct and with wholesale,” said Iain Burton, chairman of Aspinal of London.
