Inspired by @Chevrolet #MalibuStyle With Isaac Mizrahi

Monday, October 01, 2012

Popular automobiles have always been influenced by the styles of the time, resulting in the art deco details on '20s cars and the sleek minimalism of '90s autos. Really, the idea that our cars should reflect our current thoughts and feelings on style and design almost goes without question. But, what about drawing fashion inspiration from a popular car? When it comes to fashion and the automobile, can style inspiration flow both ways?

No, this isn't the latest Project Runway fashion challenge. This is a real-life partnership between the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and super creative fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi. Isaac is using the Malibu as inspiration for a new Malibu collection, plus he's taking a road trip in the new Malibu to meet women across the country and gain additional inspiration for his collection. As an inspiration for Isaac Mizrahi, the Chevy Malibu encourages creativity with its sleek design, luxurious interior, and bold colors. Check out this video where Isaac shares why he was inspired by the Malibu:

As part of this new campaign, I was asked to share the fashion inspiration I draw from the Chevy Malibu. I spent a few days studying the new Malibu and its features and I found that it is smart, simple, stylish, and beautiful. Really, all the things many of us fashionistas look for in our lives from our objects to our closets. The bold colors, uncomplicated style, and smart functionality of the Malibu are all traits that are easy to identify with.

Like the new Malibu, my finds offer bold colors, simple yet gorgeous lines, and a feeling of subtle luxury. These are fashions that are at home anywhere -- from work to the weekend, dressy event to casual lunch date -- and perfect for fall. The Malibu was definitely a great inspiration.
