Chanel Brings High Fashion to Automobiles
We've seen quite a few fashion houses work with automakers to create designer vehicles. Usually the fashion house designs the interior while the car company designs the exterior. But if South Korean car design student Jinyoung Jo has her way, high end fashion vehicle will soon be taking their turn on the catwalk.
Jo's creation, the Chanel Fiole concept car is breathtaking. Focused on creating a car targeting women that channels the spirit of fashion and beauty, Jo took inspiration from the classic and iconic designs of Coco Chanel. Following the simple yet elegant aesthetic that is trademark Chanel, the main color scheme is black and white. The vehicle has plenty of smooth, sweeping lines reminiscent of fabric or drapery and the rear wheels are concealed by the rear panels. But it wouldn't be Chanel without the trademark interlocking C's prominently displayed on the front grille and the rims of the front wheels.
As expected, the interior is just as impressive as the exterior. The Fiole gives off a cockpit feeling with two seats in the front and a third staggered in the back.
While the Chanel Fiole is without a doubt easy on the eyes, but it's all but guaranteed it won't be easy on the wallet if it comes into production.
