British luxury carmaker Bentley is to unveil is new spring fashion collection at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, which kicks off this week.

The new collection features a range of eye-catching items, including leather jackets and cashmere scarves for both men and women, some of which offer nods to Bentley’s iconic cars.

Standout pieces include men’s reversible navy leather jackets with a cobra design that resembles the Bentley Continental GT’s seats. The women’s versions are in red and dark sand with a trim inspired by the scarves worn by Tim Birkin, one of the famous “Bentley Boy” racers of the 1920s.

Founded by W. O. Bentley in 1919, Bentley Motors has grown to become one of the world’s most iconic luxury car makers. In recent years the brand has joined other carmakers in diversifying into alternative areas, including fashion, accessories and home furniture.

Last year French automaker Bugatti opened a dedicated boutique in London for its lifestyle and accessories collections.
