Car brands are big fans of, well, branding, and car branding has inevitably made it into that one store with all of the cheap clothes and none of the durability expected of other stores—the one that sucked you in with low prices before its apparel emerged from the wash as a limp, disintegrated ghost of its former…
It didn’t take me long in my days of wrenching on a shitty, terrible, always-broken old Volkswagen before I realized that I was quickly running out of junky clothes. Too many of my pants and too many of my shirts retired to running duty were getting greasy beyond use. I needed something.
For the record, I’m not talking about funny Blipshift stuff or whatever. I’m talking a T-shirt with a Lamborghini splashed across the chest. A polo with a Ferrari’s prancing horse climbing up its sleeve. How acceptable is it to wear something like that?
Almost nothing makes me happier than a brightly painted car. Too many of them on the roads these days are white, gray, black or beige. Give me candy-apple red. Electric blue. Honeyed gold. Screaming tangerine. And then give it to me as a nail polish so I can wear it around everywhere.
From the outside, attending the press days at an auto shows may seem like fun (to some, anyway.) And while it’s a nice break from all day every day at the office, you have to remember that we’re spending up to two to three days in musty convention centers for you. You, the readers, whom we work so hard to inform.
Usually, I’m against automotive-themed clothing due to my dislike of screaming labels, brand badging and whatnot, but this BMW i3- and i8-inspired dress is actually pretty cool. Probably because it doesn’t have a massive logo on it.
I saw more former F1 drivers walking around the paddocks at the Mexican Grand Prix than current ones, but only a single soul with the fashion sense of Juan Pablo Montoya.
Estonian Ott Tänak is driving for Ford in the WRC again, one of the team's two young wheelmen for this 2015 season. Is his hair perfect? Yes.
Not only did the F1 track play yodelling over the loudspeakers after the first Austrian Grand Prix in years, they put their models in traditional dirndls. This couldn't be more Austrian if it tried.
Legendary racing driver, team manager, and company founder Enzo Ferrari is less well known for employing perhaps the most excellent big-belly disguise technique: the infamous 'formless large coat' defense.
It's Fashion Week here in Manhattan, which means hundreds of models are wondering around in clothes that make no sense and haircuts that could politely be called "interesting."
This new Mercedes Web ad starring Lara Stone and directed by Alex Prager raises a number of questions. Why are all Stone's facial expressions in the vein of "Ouch! I have, or am afraid of getting, something in my eye"? Why does it make being picked up by a tornado look like a gentle ride in a hot-air balloon? Why…
Thanks Prada for once again completely befuddling me when it comes to high fashion. Because while I certainly love the designs of classic American automobiles, I would never have thought to apply their iconic spoilers and taillights to high-heeled shoes.
This morning in New York City, fashion photographer Mario Sorrenti unveiled the 2012 Pirelli calendar — the limited-edition corporate gift for top clients, published annually by the tire brand, that just happens to double as one of modeling's most prestigious gigs. The Pirelli calendar is to the girlie calendar in the…
La Déesse (also known as the Citroën DS) does everything from saving heads of state from assassins' bullets to highlighting the latest Paris fashions… 55 years after its creation. What other car could do that?
