Luxury Car: Thom Browne for Infiniti Q50 and Gilt

American fashion designer Thom Browne has turned his hand to automotive design, recently custom designing the Q50 model for Japanese car brand, Infiniti.

The collaboration is in partnership with online luxury retailer, Gilt.com, and will see a limited number of the “luxury-class sedan” available for purchase via Gilt in December this year.

The car itself features a mirrored-chrome exterior body, while the interior comprises leather seats subtly lined with white, blue and red stripes, in the designer’s signature style. Custom-designed luggage cases and a solid silver card case will also compliment the collaboration.

We saw chrome as a returning trend for exterior finishes in our recent review of Frankfurt Motor Show 2013.  Keep watching Gilt.com for more details of the Thom Browne x Infiniti Q50 release date. – Samantha Fox
