Aston Martin and Parisian fashion authority colette are collaborating to release a limited edition city car based on the Aston Martin Cygnet. Dubbed as the “Cygnet & colette” luxury city car, the limited edition model will be handcrafted courtesy of Aston Martin Works Tailored, the carmaker’s personalization service.
Aston Martin will create 14 examples of the Cygnet & colette city car, which features elements like “Cygnet & Colette” branded boot badging by Thomas Fattorini and hand-formed and engraved door handle badges made from stainless steel. Likewise, the city car features quilted leather door and seat inserts, which are in turn complemented by quilted Alcantara sun visors.
Furthermore, the city car has hand-trimmed quilted colette blue leather occasional cushions for the rear seats. It also features a distinct ‘Cygnet & colette' key ring made from solid aluminum with blue enameling. Also, a ‘Cygnet & colette' branding will appear during the startup of the satellite navigation.
The design team at Aston Martin collaborated closely with another team from collete to make the city a reality. The colette design team concentrated on materials, colors and styling that will be used on its limited edition Cygnet.
This shows how far an individual or an organization can personalize any Aston Martin vehicle to fit their preferences through the carmaker’s Works Tailored program.
The result of the collaboration is a limited edition that features Lightning Silver paint with exclusive colette blue styling details. It sports a race collection-inspired front bumper and bonnet livery as well as mirror caps and diamond-turned road wheels.
The cabin is wrapped in a Bitter Chocolate theme, as inspired by colette's mascot Oscar, a chocolate-brown Labrador. As bespoke as it is, the Cygnet and colette come with chosen goodies like candies, a custom Sigg bottle, a Wallpaper Paris guide and the latest colette compilation CDs.
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Director of Design, remarked that both Aston Martin and colette are “cool brands” that have managed to fuse modernity and innovation with success. Thus, he said, it only makes sense for them to work together.
He noted that the colette city car is the first of the exclusive “Cygnet &' collaborations” cars, which should provide the carmaker a relevant platform to appeal to new urban customers. The Aston Martin Cygnet combines elegant, practicality and luxury in one light, compact and fuel-efficient mobile machine.
Just like all other Aston Martin vehicles, the Cygnet is a handcrafted product. For this time, Aston Martin developed to cater to the wants of customers in urban areas. collete is a world-famous luxury retail store based in Paris known for its reinvention of the concept of retail. Truly, its taste for luxury service has made it a known landmark in Paris.
