We all know what designers Thom Browne and Zac Posen can do with clothes, but what if life turned out different and they had ended up designing cars instead? Both designers answer that question for you in a new collaboration involving Infiniti’s Q50 model and online retailer Gilt. Browne and Posen take on a classier Pimp My Ride-style type challenge by customizing their own cars with their trademark design styles.
For Browne, he went with so much silver you could see the car pulling up and shining from a mile away. The interior is mostly black leather highlighted by his signature red, blue, and white stripes running down the plush leather seats. Posen’s custom job is the complete opposite. If you ever wondered how an ombre paint job would look on a car, wonder no more. The exterior fades from silver to charcoal from front to back. Inside is bright red leather that’s a lot less low-key.
The cars drop on December 12 just in time for the holidays. Retail is set at $75,000, which includes a $10,000 store credit from Gilt, style consultation, and matching silver case or clutch. Now is the time to work hard for that holiday bonus.
