Aston Martin Kilgour Vantage V8

Sports car manufacturer, Aston Martin, and bespoke tailor, Kilgour of Savile Row, teamed up at a unique event yesterday at the BETC Photographic Studio in Paris.

At Kilgour`s first-ever fashion show in Paris presenting its spring/summer collection, Aston Martin created its very own haute couture bespoke V8 Vantage Coupe for the occasion, inspired by the latest creations.

The special V8 Vantage was finished in a unique Morning Frost Satin paint, with the texture of fine silk. The interior is influenced by Kilgour`s latest collection and finished in Kilgour Midnight Blue, with the seat-inserts adorned with a polka-dot effect.

Aston Martin and Kilgour both build on long traditions of highest quality craftsmanship and design and attract clients from all over the world with their tailor-made and cutting-edge innovations. The fashion show in Paris offered a unique opportunity to view the latest creations of two extraordinary brands. The new collection and the V8 Vantage were appreciated by 250 invited VIP and media guests.

Kilgour`s collection focuses on patterns incorporating spots and stripes with a single circle featured on most garments, including the modern tailored overcoats. White denim suits embroidered with navy-blue micro-spots give the collection a distinctive lightness. The circle features in the whole collection and also on the graphics and logo. Fabrics include spotted printed cottons and navy-blue micro-spotted silks.
