fashion designer cars in the world
Fiat 500LVans design
. The latest fashioninspired effort comes courtesy of Fiat, which has recently unveiled this, the Fiat 500LVans design concept. Read on to discover more questionable fashion partnerships. As David Bowie once sang,Ooh, fashion.
Fiat 500LVans design concept
. According to Fiat, details from Vans original hitop shoe are echoed throughout the 500L, including vintage palmpatterned canvas, Vans logos, Vans Checkerboard pattern roof, a twotone paint job, 18inch black alloys and a roof rack with a basket and surfboard carrier.We reckon its the most appealing Fiat 500L weve ever seen. Shame its a oneoff.
Aston Martin DB9 Volante Menlo Charity Horse Show
. The Menlo Charity Horse Show is one of the finest professional/amateur equestrian events in the United States and is renowned for its origin and legacy of philanthropy. At least thats what it says in the press release.This DB9 Volante is the latest work of Q by Aston Martin, the brands bespoke personalisation service, based in Gaydon. Not only is the interior finished in Saddle Tan Luxmill leather, its actuallybathed in it. Aston Martins words, n
SEAT Mii by Mango
. The SEAT Mii by Mango isbuilt on the belief that thinking small shouldnt mean sacrificing on style. Right.Sadly, this isnt a fruity collaboration, rather a partnership with Spanish fashion brand, Mango. As with any fashion label, if you get up early enough on Boxing Day and wait in a queue for a couple of hours, you may pick up the Mii by Mango for 50% less than the
MercedesBenz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart
. Is this the longest car name in history? Its called the MercedesBenz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart. Apparently, MercedesBenz and Spencer Hart share the same creative ethos and were keen to hook up tobring together design philosophies from the worlds of fashion and automotive engineering.The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart includeshues of inspiration from 1960s Funk music. Good grief. Heres Mr Hart striking his best Man at C&
MercedesBenz Style Pit Stop
. The Style Pit Stop was a series of documentarystyle interviews, in which Reggie Yates took to the road in a MercedesBenz AClass to chat to some of thecoolest and current names in the world of music and entertainment. It was part of the brands sponsorship of London Fashion Week.Somebody needs to tell Reggie that hes about to leave his overnight bag behind. The free toothbrushes they give you at the budget motels arent really up to much.
Vauxhall ADAM at London Fashion Week
. In 2012, Vauxhall invited three fashion designers to conjure up their own versions of the ADAM city car.One car featured giant heartshaped red Latex balloons strapped to the roof. This particular ADAM was last seen floating perilously close to the restricted airspace at Heathrow Airport.
Nissan Micra ELLE
. The Nissan Micra ELLE. Not a patch on the Nissan Micra Wave. Oh, how we chortled about that one.The problem with the ELLE which saw Nissan team up with the fashion magazine to produce 500 Micras is that the name gets lost in translation. Say you drive a Nissan Micra ELLE and people of a certain age will have visions of the baseline L models from the 1970s and 1980s. Nissan Sunny L, anyone?
Maserati Quattroporte Zegna
. Ermenegildo Zegna is a luxury Italian fashion house. Maserati is a luxury Italian car manufacturer. When they get together to produce a limited edition Quattroporte, the results are as youd expect rather beautiful.Only 100 Quattroporte Zegnas will be produced, with each one available in exclusive colours, materials and trim. It made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and will be embarking on a world tour, visiting the likes of Shanghai, Ne
Fiat 500 You Wear app
. If only I could find an app that analysed my Facebook photos to discover the colour I wear the most, before telling me what that might mean about me. Said nobody, ever.But Fiat begs to differ. Which is why it developed an app that does just that. Naturally, it also tells you what colour Fiat 500 youre best matched with.
Hyundai ix35 Fashioned Fuel Cell
. Hyundai asked students from the London College of Fashion (LCF) to create a mobile marketing campaign communicating the key benefits of Hyundais ix35 fuel cell vehicle.Ten designs were selected and then applied to the ix35 vehicles being used to chauffeur VIPs across London during a series of LCF events.
Hyundai Santa Fe Storm Models
. Hyundai delivered a fleet of Santa Fes to chauffeur Storm Models catwalk models around the capital during London Fashion Week.A spokesperson for Storm Models saidthe cars look stunning. Theyre spacious and luxurious, before returning to the latest copy of VOGUE magazine. Ciao, darling.
Jeremy Scott and the Smart Fortwo
. We recently brought you the news that Smart is doing the unthinkable and putting its wild and crazy ForJeremy into production. Its designed by the selfproclaimed last rebel of the fashion scene, Jeremy Scott, who says the Smart is something that expressed dreams and fantasies.One mans dream is another mans nightmare. Shame on Smart for removing the one interesting feature from the original concept those wings no longer double up as brake lights.
Matthew Williamson and the Rover 25
. We never really had the Rover 25 down as an Art Car, but this represented the start of a partnership between Rover and British fashion designer, Matthew Williamson. Apparently the inspiration for the car was Bollywood meets Moulin Rouge, which might help to explain the pearlescent antique gold that flips to pink.Matthew Williamson said cars are the ultimate fashion accessory. In which case were sorry to say we wouldnt be seen dead in this Rover 2
M W and Rover 25
. The interior of the Rover 25 Art Car puts us in mind of the result of someone who has walked into Homebase, selected the most lurid paints and fabrics, then had an unfortunate road traffic accident on the way home. In other words a total mess.The door cards and ceiling are dressed in fuchsia and gold Indian silk, the floor is lined with a Persian rug and the dashboard moulded in translucent plastic and backlit in pink. Erniice.
Matthew Williamson and the Rover 25 Monogram
. Fortunately, Matthew Williamsons interpretation of the Rover 25 using MG Rovers Monogram programme was a more subtle affair.The exterior was painted in a very British, Monogram Chatsworth Supertallic bronze paint, with the interior featuring Alpaca leather seats with twin needle stitching. On the outside the 25 sat on 15inch Serpent alloy wheels.
Paul Smith and the Jaguar XType
. Paul Smith is perhaps best known in the car world for his work on the classic Mini more on this later.This, thankfully, is his lesserknown creation the Paul Smith Jaguar XType. To us it looks like a roll of wallpaper has been applied liberally to a standard XType body. But what do we know?
Victoria Beckham and the Range Rover Evoque
. As the Range Rover Evoque was unveiled back in 2010, Victoria Beckham was announced as the brands creative design director. In other words, if youre not a big fan of the Evoques interior, blame Mrs Beckham.It was only a matter of time before a special, limited edition, musthave accessory Evoque Victoria Beckham was unleashed. Strictly limited to 200 pieces, every one of these posh (sorry) Evoques came with a signed handstitched leather wallet. We
Gucci and the Fiat 500
. Apparently theres a Fiat 500 on this picture. No, really, if you look hard, youll find it.The 2013 FIAT 500 Pop combines a roomy interior, energetic styling, fuel efficiency and stateoftheart ecofriendly technology.
John Varvatos and the Chrysler 300C
. Okay, so well admit it we had to turn to the search engines to find out who John Varvatos is. Were such fashion luddites.Apparently hes a Greek American contemporary menswear designer. Which is quite exciting. Hang on sorry just got a little distracted by the Fiat 500 photo again.
