Somewhere along the way, fashion and cars intersected with several special edition models that have graced our roads with impressive design elements.
Whether it’s a color scheme, specialized materials, or incredible wheels, the collaboration between the fashion and automotive industries has always brought us some special vehicles. Typically, these special models aren’t made to be more powerful than the standard models, but they bring a certain charm and look to provide something unique. Of course, sometimes, these cars haven’t been the product of creative genius that we admire, but still talk about.
Here are seven vehicles resulting from the intersection of fashion and cars.
Fiat 500 Gucci
The Fiat 500 Gucci was released and 2013 and showed what this fun little Italian car could be when one of the top designers in the world gets involved. This limited-edition car brought some of the most recognizable badging to the automotive world with Gucci signature badging. The interior brought new looks that were inspired by the designer while a set of GG inscribed wheels showcased the collaborative effort between designer and automaker.
Jaguar XE by Stella McCartney
At first glance, this intersection of fashion and cars didn’t offer the look that would inspire desire. Instead, this Jaguar XE appears to have a skin disease when you see it from a far. When you get closer to the car, you can see the black sedan is covered in superhero heads that came from McCartney’s Spring 2015 fashion collection. This car is interesting but was probably not one of the most attractive models ever made. Still, you can see why it has the look offered, even if its not a look you would desire.
Bugatti Veyron FBG par Hermes
Bugatti has made several special edition cars and it could probably be said that every car they make is a form of a special edition model. This particular model is extremely exclusive with the Hermes brand H logo featured in several areas of the car. This impressive bespoke car was designed n house by the Paris Hermes team, making it one of the most impressive and exclusive cars ever made. There’s no denying the beauty of this collaboration.
AMC Gremlin Levi’s
Levi’s is one of the most popular brands of denim jeans in the world. As one of the top companies in regular fashion, a special car was created by AMC using the Gremlin. This car appeared in 1973 and was “the economy car that wears the pants.” The denim upholstered seats feature orange stitching and rivets, much like the famous jeans from the brand. This was one of the most interesting ways we’ve seen an intersection of fashion and cars. There was also a Levi’s Jeep that ran from 1975 until 1986.
Range Rover Evoque Victoria Beckham
Victoria Beckham created her own claim to fame as Posh Spice from the Spice Girls. This notoriety led to a collaborative effort with Range Rover to create a special Evoque model with a matte-gray exterior and rose gold trim. As expected, this car feature leather everywhere and came with a matching four-piece luggage set to be the perfect travel companion. This Range Rover cost twice as much as a regular Evoque. Strangely, this specially designed SUV doesn’t fit Beckham’s family because it doesn’t have enough seats.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Versace Edition
Adding the Versace name to this car gave it a little something extra, although the Lamborghini Murcielago doesn’t need anything added to it. This car is a truly impressive intersection of fashion and cars with distinct designs on the door sill and leather seats that were designed by Versace. There was also a luggage set offered as an option, but we wonder where this luggage would go in this amazing Lamborghini sports car. This is one of the most impressive collaborations between the two industries.
Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zenga
Another incredible Italian collaboration comes to you in this Maserati which features only the finest fabrics available. This Zenga-inspired car brought tons of quality to the market, giving us a car that has the fashion brand’s silks on the seat inserts, door cars, and headliner. This isn’t a car for kids to get rough on the inside, but for the clean and crisp style required when high-class drivers head to a posh dinner or elegant event where they want to show up in style.
These seven vehicles offer various levels of the intersection of fashion and cars, giving us a few examples of how these two worlds collide.
