We were just standing on the lawn, enjoying a sparkling glass of Veuve Clicquot at The Quail: A Motorsports gathering in Monterey on Friday, when twelve impossibly tall, thin and beautiful men and women dressed in incredible outfits crossed our path.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
What we thought at first were just more celebrities joining the gathering turned out to be fashion models wearing the new Bugatti Legends fashion collection in public for the very first time. And we have to say, we were impressed by the tailor-made fashion and accessories pieces for men and women that take their inspiration from each of the six Bugatti Veyron Legends Edition cars.
The collection puts a contemporary face on the Bugatti brand using exclusive high-quality unusual materials like buffalo, deer, calf and cordovan leather join precious metal. There is a man’s and woman’s outfit devoted to each of the Legends models, sharing a bond with the respective vehicle through color patterns, prints and illustrations representing the mood and theme of each Bugatti Legend. Each line consists of leather jackets, pants, T-shirts, gloves, belts, hats, scarfs and bags.
Wolfgang Dürheimer, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., said “The Bugatti Legends Capsule Collection is an authentic example of Bugatti’s new lifestyle activities and exclusive product lines that we dedicate to our customers and lovers of the brand.” And since the Legends Edition cars are sold out, it only made sense for the French auto manufacturer to extend their brand into fashion.
The unique six we saw are available only to owners of the respective vehicles. However, stylistic elements and materials from this the Bugatti Legends collection will gradually enter Bugatti’s general lifestyle clothing lines.
