The fashion and automobile industries collided in full force when designers began collaborating with automakers to release limited edition vehicles. John Varvatos patterned with Chrysler to release the 300C John Varvatos Limited Edition model. Eddie Bauer designed special editions of the Ford Explorer, and even Victoria Beckham partnered with Range Rover to release a limited edition Range Rover Evoque.
With designers influencing the interior design of some of the world’s most popular cars, it is time for cars to influence fashion. This season, designers have embraced the car’s image quite literally placing the car print on everything such as shoes, bags, and scarfs. The great thing about this trend is that both men and women can easily rock the look. Designers like John Varvatos and Burberry have worked the car look into cuff links and neckties for men. For the women, the options are endless! Take a look at some of my favorites this season!
Markus Lupfer Emma Sequined British Car Wool Sweater ($435)
Anna Coroneo Vintage Cars Printed Chiffon Scarf, Rouge ($235)
Kate Spade New York Go Taxi Pointed-Toe Flat ($278)

The Kate Spade “Go Taxi Pointed-Toe” flats were actually released last season but were so popular, they brought them back. I was fortunate to snag a pair, and wherever I go, women and men ask me where to buy them. FYI…they run a bit big.
