Although the Veyron and Chiron are the models usually associated with Bugatti, artist Arthur B. Nustas recently released a concept looking to revive one of the French car manufacturer’s vintage models.

The concept rendering draws from the classic Bugatti Type 57T modernizing its headlamp aesthetic, curved door detailing and split color scheme. Starting with a Chiron base, Nustas translated the antique headlamps found on Type 57T to fit the more triangular modern design found on the futuristic concept vehicle.

Giorgio Armani creates clothing and accessories line for Bugatti

With a list price of $2,6 million, you can rest assured that most Bugatti Chiron owners won’t be getting behind the wheel wearing clothes from H&M and carrying bags they picked up at Walmart.

They’re more likely to be wearing, say, Armani, which is likely why the exotic automaker has teamed up with that very Italian fashion house for the latest additions to the Ettore Bugatti collection.

The ‘Giorgio Armani for Bugatti’ range is a high-end men’s clothing and accessories collection aimed at sophisticated gents. It features superior-quality materials, such as calfskin, crocodile, cashmere and suede, used to craft a series of limited edition and individually numbered garments and accessories. The items are set to incorporate Bugatti signatures like the horseshoe-shaped grille and French racing blue.

It was very natural to come together with Bugatti. We both worship things that are made well, made to last, created out of the best materials. The capsule condenses this encounter in a series of clothes and accessories designed to be worn by men who only look for the best and who live an active and dynamic lifestyle.

Due to land for the autumn/winter 2016-2017 season, the collection uses the symbols of the Bugatti brand, notably the horseshoe emblem seen on the front of its cars and the color blue. More generally, the collection’s color palette ranges from blue to cognac to khaki green.

Look for the first items to be available in Bugatti lifestyle boutiques and in selected Armani boutiques starting in August. Just don’t ask how much they’ll cost, because as the old saying goes, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
