Cygnet by Aston Martin & colette

Tuesday, 19 July 2011

French fashion brand colette has collaborated with Aston Martin Works Tailored to create a bespoke version of the Cygnet city car, with the first editions reaching dealerships this month. The new design is available in a limited-edition of only 14, and features Lightning Silver paint with blue styling details by colette.

The interior is inpired by colette's chocolate Labrador mascot, Oscar, and makes use of a Bitter Chocolate colour palette enhanced by blue colette stitching. Bespoke details include engraved stainless steel door handle badges, quilted sun visors and seat inserts, hand-trimmed blue leather occasional cushions for the back seats, and branded hand-enamelled boot badges.

Each car will also come equipped with colette's Air aroma fragrance spray, Francis Kurdijan bubbles, a Wallpaper* city guide to Paris and four colette compilation CDs.

Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's Director of Design, said of the collaboration: “Aston Martin and colette are both cool brands that successfully blend modernity and innovation. It made perfect sense to work together and create this limited piece of automotive fashion for the city. The colette car is the first of the exclusive ╩╗Cygnet &╩╝ collaborations. These cars will give Aston Martin a relevant platform to reach out to new customers in urban areas."
