Mercedes-Benz has launched a collection with everything one needs for a stylish picnic portfolio comprising attractive, useful and fashionable accessories that ensure the utmost enjoyment. The perfect companion for such excursions is the new Mercedes-Benz G-Class, for example, which is just as much at home on the road as it is off the beaten track.
The centerpiece of any picnic is the Mercedes-Benz picnic basket Classic made of bleached brown willow with a cotton lining. Its contents – plates, glasses, cups, stainless steel cutlery, salt and pepper shakers, bottle opener and fabric napkins – make for the perfect lunch on the tablecloth which is also included.
Separately available is the chequered fleece picnic blanket with a leather-look handle, whose water-repellent underside also makes it suitable for use on damp surfaces. Add to this the soft cotton pillows Classic with the 1926 Mercedes logo produced exclusively for Mercedes-Benz by FRAAS and you have the ideal component for comfortable enjoyment while listening to the sounds of nature.
Other useful helpers include the versatile Swiss Army Climber pocket knife by Victorinox for Mercedes-Benz, which is equipped with blades, scissors, a bottle opener and corkscrew, a can opener, a multi-purpose hook, a piercing/boring/sewing awl. In addition, for the true outdoorsman, Mercedes-Benz Collection includes powerful LED torches in small and large versions.
Those seeking something sportier might opt for the brown canvas backpack Vintage with exclusive leather details. This has a laptop compartment, a large main compartment and a zipped compartment for valuables. Thanks to the spacious front pocket, the most important items are always easily accessible. A bottle holder and padded shoulder straps also make this classic backpack a comfortable companion on longer tours.
For fashion-conscious ladies, Mercedes-Benz has a cooperative arrangement with the trend label Fritzi aus Preußen. This bag and shoe manufacturer based in Langenhagen in northern Germany has made a name for itself by dispensing with leather and using only naturally recyclable polyurethane.

The shopper comes in blue with silver interior, red with gold interior and silver with black interior. It can be closed with a simple press of a button.
Like vehicles bearing the Mercedes star, the Mercedes-Benz Collection excels with the highest quality and a clear design. This is also reflected in the classic designs of the polo shirts, T-shirts, vests, jackets and caps of functional, high-quality materials for women and men which lend a fashionable touch to any summer excursion.
