Malibu Style - Cars and Fashion

Industrial design and  fashion design are incestuous in their muses.   Sleek, fast cars like the new Chevy Malibu are inspired by the lifestyles of the drivers.  Fashion designers inspired by the electric colors, hot metal and luxurious interiors of their favorite cars.

One of my favorite vehicle-inspired fashion pieces growing up was the Thierry Mugler motorcycle corset made famous in George Michael’s Too Funky music video in the 1990’s. 

Rich red chrome makes any fashion statement look hot.  A car’s details has inspired more than one designer on and off the runway.  Prada’s spring accessories sported tail fins and classic car details on their shoes and handbags.  A sequin embroidered dress from Miss Selfridge mirrors the honeycomb pattern of the Malibu’s front grille.

A sweet ride through the city also inspires an urge for appropriate goodies for driving.  Prada has a great pair of driving gloves in patent leather oxblood.  Kara Ross designed a fantastic necklace in tribute to the City with salvaged concrete and photos of NYC landmarks.  Designer Jennifer Chun’s collection mixes prints and layered urban pieces for a slick, look like the plush interiors of a car.
