Bringing together technology, elegance and Italian-made design, Automobili Lamborghini and Pirelli Design have announced an original capsule collection of premium clothing and footwear, for their “premium” customers.
The capsule collection includes a jacket with four external pockets and one internal pocket with an “all-seasons” light padding that makes it a garment suited to all latitudes.. The highest levels of technology and quality, as well as significant research, have gone into the combination of materials: lambskin and nylon. The jacket also features stitched motifs of Lamborghini’s super sports cars, finished by zipped cuffs in gunmetal gray. The left sleeve carries Automobili Lamborghini’s shield logo, the star sign of Ferruccio Lamborghini.
The collections’ polo shirt is crafted in mercerized cotton piquet and features a ribbed inlaid collar with two shades of gray and contrasting detailing in the neck and vents. The shirt also features a high-definition rubberized Automobili Lamborghini shield.
The collection also features a pair of ergonomic driving shoes or Moccasins designed to assist the articulation of the driver’s foot while driving. The brushed calf-leather upper has a shield-shaped Automobili Lamborghini cut-out in which the rubberized tongue fits. The rubber soles feature a tread design evoking the radial pattern of Pirelli’s famous tires.
The partnership between Lamborghini and Pirelli dates back to 1963 when Ferruccio Lamborghini turned to Pirelli to supply tires for his brand-new company’s super sports car – the 350 GTV. That bond continues today and can be seen in the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition: the latest piece in this long and unbroken story of innovative, 100 per cent Italian collaboration.
