Changing Gears

Cars and fashion: An unlikely marriage of minds? A new trend supposedly emerging in fashion is garments and accessories made from car parts (clean with tire cleaner, if you please) and the latest trend in the auto industry is creating cars in colors that are in line with the color trends of the season (the better to match your Louis Vuitton-Richard Prince bag). According to this logic, we assume that, soon enough, it will be impossible to distinguish a pick-up truck from a red carpet gown. This is a frightening thought. [MediaPost; WSJ]
