Mercedes-Benz’s First UK Fashion Collaboration With Spencer Hart
Mercedes-Benz and luxury menswear brand Spencer Hart unveiled an exciting new collaboration at the recent London Collections: Men; the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart. The two brands, whose shared creative ethos draws from understated elegance, style and glamour, partnered to bring together design philosophies from the worlds of fashion and automotive engineering.
Unveiled as the finale to the Spencer Hart London Collections: Men show, the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart styled by Nick Hart, the brand’s Creative Director, showcases the work of AMG’s Performance Studio and bespoke optioning. Mercedes-Benz’s first UK fashion collaboration saw the designer crafting a unique design, which will be available for customers to order.
The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart appears in a specially created colour ‘Nick Hart Midnight Blue’, which is Spencer Hart’s signature colour. In place of the traditional Mercedes-Benz chrome accents and wheels, Nick Hart has chosen subtle, dark, understated finishes for interior trim details, and the external highlights.
The luxurious cabin of the bespoke Mercedes-Benz takes inspiration from Spencer Hart’s flagship store in Brook Street, in particular the exclusive walnut panelled personal shopping area, ‘The Vault’. The CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart has specially sourced dark Chocolate Brown Italian leather seats with contrasting Midnight Blue stitching, with the Spencer Hart logo (inspired by the Parker Hotel in Palm Springs), embroidered into each headrest. The unique design is further enhanced by Nick Hart’s signature, creating a subtle feature on the centre console.
Unveiled for the first time at London Collections: Men, the collaboration was revealed at The Old Sorting Office, following Spencer Hart’s SS14 collection showcase. The collection complemented the sleek understated design of the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake by Spencer Hart which includes hues of inspiration from 1960s Funk music.Jump to comments
