Stuttgart. The Mercedes-Benz Spring Selection for 2017 is comprised of products of especially high quality – even some in the trend colour of the season, plum. Among the new additions this spring are classy watches, high-quality clothing, stylish sunglasses as well as a USB stick in the form of the new generation of Mercedes-Benz keys. Plum is a trend colour of the season. The Spring Collection 2017 is part of the Mercedes-Benz Collection 2017.
Plum is one of the trend colours this spring. Many new products from the Mercedes-Benz Spring Selection are in this warm colour purple-tone, which can be easily combined with other colours. The Ladies’ Jacket black features plum-coloured contrasts and is very much on trend. Further features are the stylish quilting, the warming padding and the detachable hood. Various zippered pockets provide stowage options.
A perfect colour match to the jacket is the Ladies’ T-shirt in plum with plum-coloured Swarovski® Crystals on the front, back and along the short sleeves. It has an embroidered tone-in-tone Mercedes star on the back. Rolled hems on neckline, sleeves and hem ensure a sporty look. The t-shirt is made of cotton, 5% spandex fibre and comes in slim-fit in sizes XS-XL.
Also fitting is the Ladies’ Cap in plum with Swarovski® Crystals on the front and back. The bottom side of the cap’s bill is black.
In addition to textiles in the seasonal colour, there is also a Nail Varnish from LCN for Mercedes-Benz in plum.
Special features of the Ladies’ Sport Chronograph Fashion Watch are the plum-coloured highlights on the white face and the 12 Swarovski® Crystals. The stopwatch functionalities are housed in a sporty stainless-steel case (diameter: 39 mm). The hands are coated with the Super-LumiNova® luminous material. The white silicone watch band also features plum-coloured accents. The chronograph is waterproof to 10 ATM and driven by the Swiss Ronda 5030 quartz movement.
The Ladies’ Casual Wallet and the Ladies’ Handbag both in plum colour are manufactured by handbag-specialist BREE for Mercedes-Benz. The wallet has various pockets for bank notes, coins and cards. The handbag is equipped with handles made of artificial leather and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap. To keep things in order, the handbag has various zipper compartments, a slot with two pin loops as well as a cell phone compartment.
