If there’s an automaker that best exemplifies chic lifestyle, it’s Citroen . Known for having its fair share of collaborations with fashion designers – Yves Saint Laurent , are you there? – the French automaker has teamed up with another designer for a set of special edition DS3 hatchbacks.
In collaboration with renowned designer, Orla Kiely, Citroen is releasing a special edition DS3 that will be limited to only 500 units. Each of the cars come in four different colors and are painted with four different design patterns on the roof that feature Kiely’s signature stem or acorn design.
Commenting on her partnership with Citroen, Kiely was understandably ecstatic about the opportunity to work on her own special edition DS3.
“Collaborating with Citroën and DS3 was such an exciting project as it’s so different from all my previous work,” the designer said.
“I love the designs we’ve created and the way they’re incorporated into the car!"
We trust that these special edition models are catered to a specific audience because we can’t see ourselves driving around town with acorns on our roof. Not to say that we don’t like it because we actually do. It’s just not our, shall we say, cup of tea.
