When Luxury Brands Collide

For those who just can't get enough Luxe logos,
Susan Tabac at Chic in Paris has posted on the new Bugatti Veyron Fpg par Hermes.

Named after the Hermes atelier on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris, designer Gabriel Penezzi brought the two worlds of luxury together without compromising the legendary engineering and unparalleled technology of the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. Extremely rare, the automobiles exterior is unmistakably detailed with an Hermes monogrammed front grill, simply tasteful “H” logoed rims, and an engraved fuel filler marked with the vehicles sought after name.
Hermes’ impressive craftsmanship also characterizes the automobile interior with such features as classic Hermes trunk handles used for the inner doors, logo engraving into the black leather seats, Hermes leather upholstering that snugly fits a matching wallet in the front console, and a customized space in the trunk that fits perfectly an Hermes suitcase.

So...I guess that for some people it isn't enough to have the Hermes birkin, wallet and suitcase...they need to have the logo laden car as well.

My take on this is that when two attractive luxury brands mate, their offspring isn't necessarily beautiful.
