Motoring Chic for Fashionistas

[caption id="attachment_2069" align="alignright" width="300"] Porsche Luggage[/caption] In recent weeks we’ve reviewed latest fashion trends at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Madrid and admired the silky style and breathtaking potency of the new Bugatti “Legendes” model dedicated to brand founder and patron Ettore Bugatti. This week, we bring these two distinctive worlds together with a look at some of the stunning products created as part of a burgeoning design fusion between the motoring industry and other luxury lifestyle goods such as luggage, handbags, clothes and footwear. Porsche 918 Spyder: Designed by the Porsche Design Studio and developed by Porsche in Weissach, this luggage collection is available in three versions – as a five-piece luggage set, three-piece travel set or two-piece stowage set – and the entire set comprises two storage boxes, two garment covers and a trolley. The pieces of luggage are made from a high-quality combination of exposed carbon and authentic natural leather, and the insides of the boxes, the garment covers and the suitcase are lined with Alcantara. The luggage set is available in the same versions as the vehicle interior: Garnet Red-Silver, Onyx Black-Acid Green, Onyx Black-Silver, Mocca Brown-Silver and Mocca Brown-Orange.

Manufactured by Emma Brown for Mercedes‑Benz, and produced in Italy, the bag is made from grey Italian suede and features various inner compartments and a black satin lining. Other features include short handles and a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap.

[caption id="attachment_2077" align="alignleft" width="300"] BMW Louis Vuitton[/caption] BMW Louis Vuitton: A pioneer in the art of travel, Louis Vuitton has created a tailor-made set of luggage for the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid. The innovative collection comprises two travel bags, a business case and a garment bag, and – to ensure optimal use of space – the items have been tailor-made to fit perfectly into the interior of the BMW i8. The understated carbon-black of the range matches the colours of the BMW i8, while Its sophisticated look comes courtesy of the unmistakable chequered Damier pattern – a Louis Vuitton hallmark – and a laser-etched Louis Vuitton signature. Black and electric blue used in the microfibre lining take their cue from the trademark brand colours of the BMW i8, and bag handles are made from dyed natural leather. All items in the collection come with leather nametags and the iconic Louis Vuitton padlock, with the exception of the garment bag. [caption id="attachment_2081" align="alignright" width="226"] Bentley Vibrancy[/caption] Bentley Luxury Collection: Vivid examples of Bentley’s exquisite colour palette have brought new haute-couture choices to a woman’s range of luxury accessories, including two handbag models – the Continental and the Barnato bags – complemented by new silk scarves. The scarves depict architectural and natural landscape features in an abstract pattern. Within the scarf images are featured the Jacobean mansion of Crewe Hall, the historic estate of Tatton Park and the renowned façade of Bentley’s factory – in two colour combinations of blue/Magenta and orange/Magenta.
