You can only drive this stylishly with the Driving Essentials from Connolly
Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls-Royce - once there was hardly a distinguished automobile whose seats were not upholstered in Connolly leather. Today the traditional British brand produces fine accessories for stylish drivers, which you can now find in the Classic Driver Shop.
The Connolly story begins in 1878 when the saddlery was founded in London. However, Connolly achieved world fame as the preferred leather supplier to high-end automotive brands like: Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls-Royce. They all adorned themselves with the Connolly name and had the seats of their most elegant models covered with the famous and durable Vaumol leather. But that's not all: The seats of the Houses of Parliament, the coronation carriages of the British royal family, the armchairs of the Concorde and the chairs of Mies van der Rohe were also covered with leather from Connolly.
In 2016 the brand finally reinvented itself: as a contemporary and elegant fashion brand that combined its automotive and racing heritage and more than 150 years in leather production with British understatement, European style and a keen sense for craftsmanship. And it doesn't matter whether you choose a pair of driver gloves that match your Aston Martin DB5 GT or the matching driving goggles for your Blower Bentley - you won't start the driving season this year more elegantly than with the Connolly driver accessories.
