Affalterbach. To coincide with the market launch of the new roadster, the Italian leather goods manufacturer Santoni is offering a luggage set that is tailor-made to fit the boot of the new Mercedes‑AMG SL from spring 2022. The collection includes a beauty case, a backpack and a weekender. All three products are made of high-quality nappa leather, and are available in three different colours. Mercedes-AMG and Santoni have been in close partnership for many years. As part of this successful lifestyle cooperation, the luxury goods manufacturer offers a wide range of exclusive shoes and accessories such as belts and wallets under the label “Santoni for AMG”. The new luggage set is also available at https://www.santoniforamg.com.
Mercedes-AMG and Santoni started their partnership back in 2005, with FIA-approved racing and stylish casual shoes. The products of the “Santoni for AMG” label exemplify the values that unite the two brands: outstanding craftsmanship, the highest quality and attention to detail.
The new three-piece collection is made from the same nappa leather that is used for the seat covers of the new Mercedes-AMG SL. The weekender, beauty case and backpack are available as a package or individually, and fit exactly into the boot of the new Mercedes-AMG SL for optimum use of space. They are available in black, sienna brown and red pepper. A discreetly embossed “Santoni for AMG” logo additionally underlines the high quality.
“The new Mercedes-AMG SL offers the highest level of comfort and quality, and combines this with inspiring sportiness,” says Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “This makes it the ideal automotive companion for those occasional escapes from the daily routine – and the customised Santoni luggage set is the perfect matching lifestyle accessory. With the new SL, as with the Santoni collection, stylish luxury meets perfect craftsmanship.”
“We are delighted to be able to realise this exciting project of a customised luggage set for the new Mercedes-AMG SL together with our long-standing partner Mercedes-AMG,” says Giuseppe Santoni, CEO of Santoni. “Mercedes-AMG and Santoni represent two worlds that have a great deal in common: outstanding craftsmanship, the highest quality and attention to detail. These attributes are also impressively reflected in our latest collection.”
The weekender (63 cm x 28 cm x 35 cm) offers enough space for luggage on a multi-day trip. A separate compartment is integrated, for example for shoes or other items that should not come into contact with clothing. Two strap handles and a detachable shoulder strap guarantee high carrying comfort. The backpack (36 cm x 18 cm x 41 cm) also has a separate inside compartment for better organisation. Its adjustable carrying straps and two-way zip ensure easy handling. The same applies to the zipped beauty case (28 cm x 11 cm x 16 cm), which also has an additional inner pocket. These items available as pre-orders are handmade and are delivered twelve weeks after ordering.
