Simultaneous Dress. Simultaneous Car.

Today, over at Retronaut.  The fabulous Sonia Delaunay.  

And her matching automobile.  Naturellement!


She’s one of my most very special favorite-est designers.  You can read more about her life and work here.

The Old Motor goes one step further, in the British Vogue’s interpretation of Sonia and her “Simultaneous Dress.”  (love).

Which leads me to this.


I really love the idea of projecting outward a design aesthetic in this most practical and tangible of ways.  Being able to customize and integrating personal taste with your larger-scale possessions.  

Don’t you think that the automotive industry truly fails in this regard, especially the cars of today.    I’ve never understood why this arena is so staid and unexciting.    

I tell you–I prefer this type of glam.  Even with the top down.
