For some, automobiles are simply a form of transportation. To others, an automobile is more than simply a mode of transportation; it is a fashion statement.
For decades, car manufacturers have been aware of this and have always catered to fashion-conscious motor aficionados.
For years, renowned automakers have collaborated with fashion businesses ranging from sportswear lines to haute couture houses to create limited edition vehicles that transcend time.
These fashion-car collaborations have resulted in some of the most eye-catching automobiles in auto history, beloved by enthusiasts from both fields.
Without further ado, here are our favorites:
Landrover Defender X Paul Smith
This vehicle was developed to honor the distinctive and enduring British design elegance.
Paul Smith, a designer, desired a personalized version for himself, thus the Defender Paul Smith.
The Land Rover Defender has a history reaching back to 1948 and hails from the most opulent British vehicle showroom of the time.
It was originally utilized on rough terrains such as mountainous and rocky regions.
Paul Smith decorated the car in the most gorgeous Pantone hues to retain its legacy and multicultural nature.
Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division was entrusted with generating the 27 hues on the car's exterior.
Its interior design features Paul Smith Maharan fabric with blue seams and black leather accents.
Lincoln Continental Mark X Givenchy
Lincoln's 1979 luxury Givenchy package debuted inside a vehicle that looked more like a tiny boat than a sedan.
That was, after all, the taste and aesthetics of the late 1970s.
The two-door car measured 19 feet long and 6.5 feet wide and weighed 4,787 pounds.
The Givenchy G emblem was featured on the hood, spare tire hump, and in the iconic opera window of the automobile, which was available in a variety of colors.
The collaboration added $2,145 to a Mark V's $13,000 basic price and was one of three subsequent designer models Lincoln would release for Bill Blass, Cartier, and Emilio Pucci.
Maserati Quattroporte X Ermenegildo Zegna
Maserati's 100th anniversary was marked by the collaboration of two 'Made in Italy' excellences.
Every element of the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna's interior exudes luxury and sophistication.
Zegna's stylish touch can be found everywhere, from the leather and silk combination to the subtle tones of Greige (grey and beige) and on the interior.
It may also be observed in the console's wood, chrome, and brass elements, as well as the "One of 100" sign.
Fiat X Bulgari
The beautiful tiny Fiat 500 by Bulgari could channel the excitement, hedonism, and exuberance that defined 1950s Italy.
There are only three copies of this Fiat 500 special edition in the world, much like a rare treasure.
And the beloved Cinquecento's first electric model definitely lives up to its name of "never enough."
The metallic paint in Imperial Saffron evokes the brightness of the Eternal City by incorporating gold dust.
The Parentesi design from Bulgari is reinterpreted on the engine front grid, while the eight-pointed star is referenced on the wheel rims.
Its interiors feature a dashboard coated in hand-painted silk and seats upholstered with embroidered octane leather.
Cadillac Seville X Gucci
The Cadillac Seville by Gucci was one of the few collaborations in which the final product was obtained by a third party.
Seville's - fully equipped car – was delivered to the offices of the premium brand Gucci for special augmentation, in keeping with the company's late 1970s design.
The car, which was available in white, black, or brown, had a gold Gucci hood ornament, gold logos on the wheels, front fenders, and C-Pillar, and Gucci's green and red stripes across the trunk lid.
Inside, headrests, armrests, headliners, and floor mats were made of expensive Gucci materials.
To top it all off, there was a five-piece Gucci luggage set in the trunk.
The first edition, released in 1978, cost $19,900 USD, while the 1979 model cost $22,900 USD.
