With all major fashion weeks behind, it suddenly became easy for me to draw a line between fashion and cars. No matter how you see them, both are forms of self-expression. They show our status. They show our neighbors just how well off we are.
Both are also matters of choice. Some prefer practical hot-hatches and underwear from Marks & Spencer, while others choose style over practicality and go for Lambos, and Ferraris, and a pair of undies from La Perla.
So below, I put four car brands matched with, what in my opinion, can be considered their fashion counterparts. If you disagree, feel free to hit that comment section.
4. Alfa Romeo - Chanel
Alfas are works of art. Their lines are sexy and provocative yet classy and elegant.
Chanel has always been the embodiment of a classical look. Both, Chanel clothes and jewelry speak elegance. I guess Alfas and Chanel can be a pretty good match.
3. Bugatti - Rolex
A good watch is the one that doesn't fail you. A great watch is the one made with precision, serious technology, and craftsmanship, capable of not only showing time but also your status at a cocktail party.
Bugatti is another creation of craftsmanship. Veyron is a result of creativity, hard work, knowledge, and refusal to believe that something can't be done.

2. Ferrari - YSL
Ferraris in my book are subtle yet very strong statement. If they were a person, they'd be sophisticated and elegant, turning heads but not in in-your-face sort of way.
Same can be said about Yves Saint Laurent - a French luxury brand that goes along the same subtle yet very powerful lines as Ferrari.
1. Lamborghini - Gucci
Lambos are bonkers. Flamboyant and extravagant, they've always been a great poster material.
Gucci has been very adventurous with its designs as well - unconventional lines, incredibly bright colors, flowery prints James May's shirts will be jealous of. This match was made in heaven.
