Paul Smith X Land Rover Defender

This won´t be everybody´s cup of tea, but we love it! This is a collaboration between two of Britain´s most iconic design brands, fashion Designer Paul Smith and car manufacturer Land Rover. The bespoke Land Rover Defender features 27 different exterior colors, and uses a mix of leather and fabric for the seats, with contrasted stitching. A fitting tribute to one of the world´s best loved vehicles, that unfortunately will end production in December of this year. Enjoy the pictures after the jump.
