The Stuff of Legends

 

Last month at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and The Quail, Bugatti unleashed all six of its “Legends” special edition Veyrons for the first time anywhere on the planet. In case this wasn’t enough, they proceeded to drop the jaws of all in attendance even further with the launch of the Legends Capsule Collection clothing line which draws from the inspiration of each of the half dozen supercars.

Buffalo, deer, calf and cordovan leather are used, along with precious metal elements in what the firm calls ‘a harmonious union of technology and sophisticated luxury’. For each of the six “Les Légendes de Bugatti” editions, there’s both a male and a female outfit, with patterns and colors inspired by those used on the cars.

“Black Bess” outfits include black deerskin leather jackets, more T-shirts decorated with Swarovski crystal details and, as with several of the others, an EB-monogrammed belt buckle.

The “Jean Bugatti” Legend has an Atlantic Type 57 silhouette printed onto the T-shirt, while the woman’s T-shirt has silk kimono sleeves.

 

It starts with the "Jean-Pierre Wimille" Legend, whose bi-color buffalo hide jackets are feature tie-dyed "heritage treatment". There are also dedicated T-shirt designs—the female line is inlaid with Swarovski crystals—with belts, driving gloves and even a straw hat joining the outfit.
