With the “DESIRE COLLECTION” MAYBACH Icons of Luxury is teaming up with Mercedes-Benz Design to launch a high-quality, progressive bag collection for a discerning clientèle. In combination with the Maybach pattern as an exclusive brand characteristic, it represents a synthesis of the traditional values of a luxury brand – such as the highest level of handcrafted perfection – with an expressive design language.
“The ‘DESIRE COLLECTION’ embodies our understanding of luxury and the desire for beauty and the extraordinary. It combines exclusive materials and craftsmanship at the highest level with theperfect fusion of technical precision and luxurious lightness. The collection embodies the characteristic Mercedes-Maybach DNA of our philosophy ‘Sophisticated Luxury’.” – Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Mercedes-Benz Group AG
“In close cooperation with Mercedes-Benz Design, this bag collection has been created with a naturalness that can be felt in the aura of its forms. I see in its expression all the positive energy that has always accompanied us in our joint development process.” – Jutta Kahlbetzer, CEO & Head of Design MAYBACH Icons of Luxury
The uniformity of the design language is reflected in the use of only two interlocking cut shapes; in addition, elements that are coordinated in terms of colour and materiality feature the brand’s distinctive components. The utmost attention is paid to the seams and zips – here the focus is on both harmony with the basic formal principle and perfect implementation of craftsmanship. The inside of the bags also meets the demands of the highest handcrafted production and emphasises the brand affiliation with its exclusively developed lining fabric.
The individual bags of the “DESIRE COLLECTION” are available in different colour combinations, meaning that the collection always appears in a different light – from timeless-classic to progressive and expressive. They are available in MAYBACH boutiques, exclusive MAYBACH partner shops and in the online shop www.maybach-luxury.com.
The following articles belong to the “DESIRE COLLECTION”:
THE BARREL BAG I
Measuring 55 x 24 cm, THE BARREL BAG I is ideal as a weekender for a short trip to the mountains or vibrant cities. It has two inside pockets with a zip, plus an adjustable and detachable shoulder strap for maximum flexibility. THE BARREL BAG I is available in three different colour combinations: the version in white leather with black Maybach pattern and gold metal parts combines sporty nonchalance with that certain something, while the understated design in black leather and suede combines the grey Maybach pattern with palladium-plated metal applications. The orange and pink leather version is particularly expressive, also with palladium-plated metal applications.
THE BARREL BAG II
The smaller sister of THE BARREL BAG I, THE BARREL BAG II is every bit as functional and comfortable. It is also equipped with two inside zipped pockets and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap. The 35 x 15 cm bag is available in the same designs as the larger version: white leather with black Maybach pattern and gold metal parts, black leather and suede with grey Maybach pattern and palladium-plated metal applications, and orange and pink leather with palladium-plated metal applications.
THE BARREL BAG III
Measuring 22 x 10 cm, THE BARREL BAG III variant is ideal for shopping trips or club visits. Currently the smallest of the THE BARREL BAG range, it has an inside pocket and an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap. It is available in the same three colour variants as the larger versions.

THE COCOON BAG I, which can be worn as a backpack or crossbody bag, offers optimum comfort between two business appointments: the 25 x 40 cm bag can hold a 12.9-inch tablet, and thanks to the inner zipped pocket and pen loop, all important utensils are within easy reach. Two adjustable and detachable shoulder straps provide maximum flexibility. It is available in the three “DESIRE COLLECTION” colour combinations: white/white with pattern/gold, black/black with pattern/palladium and orange/pink/palladium.
