Citroen reveals DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection
Citroen has taken the wraps off a new range of special edition DS3 models created in collaboration with world-renowned designer Orla Kiely.
The Orla Kiely Collection comprises four DS3’s four different body colours and four different roof designs, which feature Kiely’s signature stem or acorn patterns. All cars also come with coloured door mirrors, black or white 17-inch alloy wheels and stem print rear window graphics.
“Collaborating with Citroen and DS3 was such an exciting project as it’s so different from all my previous work. I love the designs we’ve created and the way they’re incorporated into the car!" Orla commented.
Inside the cabin, all models come with leather seats and Orla Kiely-embossed multi-coloured headrests, stem or acorn print carpet mats and colour contrasting dashboard and door handle inserts, available in cream or brown.
“[Orla Kiely] is the perfect partner for DS3 – which is already Top Gear magazine’s Car of the Year and a model fast becoming an icon of its own time," added Mark Lloyd, Chief Designer of DS3.
Limited to just 500 units, the Citroen DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection will be released on 1 February 2011 with an on-the-road starting price of £16,000.
