Wooing a woman requires more math than logical reasoning. The idea is to find a balance of practicality and sensitivity. For instance, Aston Martin has the power to rev up any car lover’s heart while Valentino can get a fashionista weak in her knees. Now the math – cover an Aston Martin Vanquish with a Valentino’s signature camouflage print and voila, a creation no style-monger can resist.
Strategic maybe, but this one is for a great cause. Tonight the ‘Vanquish Volante’ will be auctioned during a gala dinner organized by charity Cash & Rocket in London for the benefit of three charitable causes.
This collaboration between Valentino and Q by Aston Martin, the bespoke personalization and customization service from the British carmaker is part of a project by Cash & Rocket to raise funds for three of their partners – Shine On Sierra Leone, Orphanaid Africa and Sumbandila. The exterior of the car will feature Valentino’s trademark camo print designed by the fashion house’s design directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. The design hit bull’s eye when the duo joined Valentino in 2008 and has climbed the fashion vine since. The car will feature the khaki and stone camo print as well as metal studs along its body.
Aston Martin Vanquish is a grand tourer created by the carmaker in 2001 in two options, coupe and volante. It ‘retired’ in 2007 and was re-launched in 2012. Its mass claim to fame came after being featured in the James Bond movie Die Another Day.
Such marriages are made in heaven.
