L'art de L'automobile hosted friends and family of the brand by holding a temporary store and exhibition during Paris Fashion Week FW19. Dubbed "Out of Gasoline," the project was ultimately inspired by one of the most important designers and engineers of the 20th century, Paris-born Jean Prouvé.

Prouvé himself was in turn inspired by industries that were already considered "modern," and this included the automotive industry. A car enthusiast in his own right, Prouvé crafted pieces of furniture made from bent steel, somewhat mimicking the body of a car. Furthermore, Prouvé went on to design gas stations for Total or Socony-Vacuum and car dealerships for Citroën in Lyon and Paris.

As you can see, L'art de L'automobile's "Out of Gasoline" space served as a celebration of Jean Prouvé's work. The exhibition and temporary store was open to the public last week from January 18 through January 19, as a number of design and fashion insiders such as Virgil Abloh, Don C, Heron Preston, Anwar Carrots, Poggy and Daniel Arsham came through to check out the event and show their support.
