Volkswagen joins forces with fashion designers to create line of exclusive accessories for new Eos Convertible
In the news: Volkswagen of America Inc., in partnership with designers Lutz & Patmos, Hable Construction and Sigerson Morrison will create a unique and exciting line of lifestyle accessories exclusively designed for the new Volkswagen Eos. The fashionable but practical accessory line will include silk scarves and cashmere blankets and wraps. And of course donít forget the perfect set of driving shoes and gloves to round up the whole savvy and active lifestyle of the Eos consumer.
Lutz & Patmos are artisans of cashmere design and will be creating two exclusive items for Volkswagen this spring that will express style, elegance and sophistication. Both the Eos and Lutz & Patmos brands appeal to women who are looking for chic designs with minimalist aesthetics and appreciation for quality. The very first Lutz & Patmos accessory for the Eos was an Origami wrap which was crafted from a light cashmere blend and perfect for changing the tone of the interior.
The second unique item that is going to be created for Volkswagen is the Two in One/Sculptural Coat and Blanket for Two which is a cashmere wool blend in a choice of black or light grey and can be worn by the driver as a sculptural coat or as a blanket for the two passengers in the backseat in times when the top is down.
These stylish and wearable items are not only beautiful but are also multi functional. The Lutz & Patmos cashmere accessories strongly accentuate the elegant features of the Eos. And according to Amy Gushman, Eos marketing manager at Volkswagen, "The Volkswagen Eos customer appreciates simple design and classic, tasteful lines. With the introduction of the Eos accessories line for the sophisticated female, Eos owners can extend their appreciation for luxurious craftsmanship from their automobiles to their own wardrobe."
The German automakerís line of headscarves is creatively designed to reflect the image of true Eos Goddess. The scarves are the perfect accessories for a top down drive. Volkswagen has also sought out the expertise of other noted designers such as Susan and Katharine Hable or Hable Construction for a third silk scarf with a signature Hable Construction design. These scarves may be worn on head, neck or worn as a belt.
According to Tina Lutz of Lutz & Patmos, "Partnering with Volkswagen to create accessories for the Eos has been a unique and exciting opportunity for us. To create stylish accessories that combine luxurious fabric and a chic, simple design for the Eos was a flawless fit for the brand since our products speak directly to the sophistication of the Eos woman."
Later in spring this year, Sigerson Morrison will introduce the Driving Slip On, Driving Gloves and the perfect shoes to match the car and the women who will drive the Eos.
