What's all this about?

French fashion designer and model Ines de la Fressange has developed two unique concept cars based on the DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio.

Très chic. When do we get to see them?

Both are at DS World Paris now, the flagship showroom-event-exhibition venue in the French capital, with the DS 3 hatch due to be shown on the DS stand at the Paris Motor Show in October.

And what's so special about them?

They are dripping in Parisian style, their colour schemes dreamt up by one of the leading names in the fashion world. The DS 3 is satin Ink Blue with a gloss Onyx Black roof, while the Cabrio is Perla Nera Black with a matte Infinite Blue roof and soft-top. Both have 17-inch Aphrodite diamond-cut alloys and showcase the DS 3 New Light Signature - here featuring exclusive red mirror housings and detailing, with some bespoke badging to boot.

How about inside?

They have the same interior, which features a strong red, white and blue theme, as per France's national flag. The seats are Granite Blue with white stitching, while the 'Aéropostale' signature seen on the body is carried over inside. The dash is Ines Red, to match those door mirror housings. It's all very à la mode, daaahling!
