As part of its major revamp of its flagship Queen Mary 2, Cunard has inked a partnership with luxury lifestyle brand Aspinal of London.
As part of the partnership, guests will be able to purchase a co-branded Cunard and Aspinal collection with items like the lifestyle brand’s signature refillable travel journal, as well as a range of women's designer handbags and purses, men's wallets and luxury leather gifts.
Aspinal will also have the Pegasus Collection on board, to coincide with the first Queen Mary 2 transatlantic fashion-themed crossing to New York, which will take place the first week of September. The arrival of the QM2 in to New York coincides with start of New York Fashion Week 2016, with the ship sailing past The Statue of Liberty and arriving that morning. Following Aspinal's global launch of Pegasus this August with Harrods, the collection will be available as an exclusive on board QM2 for the duration of the transatlantic crossing to New York. Harrods and the Queen Mary 2 will be the only two places to buy the collection until QM2 arrives in New York at the end of transatlantic fashion week.
Aspinal's Pegasus Collection is created with award-winning graphic artist Emma Shipley and has an ethereal pearl white Pegasus figure, surrounded by hand drawn constellations, planets and galaxies. The Pegasus designs are digitally printed onto key bag silhouettes and silk, twill and cashmere.
