SoCal native Esquivel has created an exclusive capsule collection of bags inspired by the beloved hotel’s iconic palm print. Perfect for a weekend getaway and available to purchase now, shop the beautiful collection in store at the hotel or online at shop.dorchestercollection.com.
“Collaborating with an American treasure like The Beverly Hills Hotel on a second collection is a dream come true. The design embodies classic and sophisticated charm, and I am proud to carry on the lineage of the iconic print in the great tradition of old Hollywood.” commented George Esquivel.
The second Esquivel x The Beverly Hills Hotel collection includes three bags, featuring an overnight duffel bag, a coated canvas tote, and a canvas tote, for on the go or weekend getaways. Post-Covid travel has never sounded so appealing.
All three bags are available with pink trim and accents, or for a subtle look, tan trim and accents. The collection is bound together by the playful twists on the iconic palm print seen throughout the hotel and known around the world.
Truly exquisite, every piece is made by hand at the Esquivel atelier in Southern California and takes several detailed steps to complete. The designer printed the rich green and white of the signature banana print on high quality canvas.
“Our signature banana leaf print continues to make generations of guests nostalgic for The Beverly Hills Hotel,” says General Manager Edward Mady.
“If anyone doubts the emotional attachment one can have to wallpapered hallways, they have not met our guests. George Esquivel has created a stylish new collection that our guests are going to love,“ he adds.
Handcraftsmanship, quality and tradition are at the heart of Esquivel, a brand that combines a modern aesthetic with a timeless sensibility, all with a Southern California, casual sophistication.
A destination for English Royals and Hollywood’s elite like Lauren Bacall, Fred Astaire and Grace Kelly, who stayed at the legendary hotel during Hollywood’s Golden Age, The Beverly Hills Hotel has one of the most recognizable wallpapers in the world, which was created by CW Stockwell in 1942.
With its distinctive colours, large bright leaves, and waving banana palms, it remains internally and intrinsically connected to the hotel, and has developed a type of iconic status amongst designers and guests alike.
