Their fashion game on lock, two of today’s most acclaimed fashion designers have recently branched out into automotive design. Thom Browne and Zac Posen have teamed up with fashion retailer Gilt.com to each customize an Infiniti Q50. The luxury-class sedan has undergone a thorough reworking to feature both designers’ unique handwriting on the exterior as well as on the interior. The eleborate features include, among others, Thom Browne’s trademark white, blue and red stripes adorning the seats, interior doors, and carpets, as well as a sleek mirrored finish on the outside.
Zac Posen went down a different, however, no less lush path, letting his rendition fade from silver in front to charcoal in back, and from matte to shine, while the interior comes wrapped in premium brown leather. Both cars will be available via Gilt starting December 12. The retail price is set well above a fully-loaded Q50 at $75,000. For good measure, Gilt will also throw in $10,000 store credit, as well as a style consultation and either a matching silver card case (Browne version) or a clutch (Posen version).
