DS3 by Orla Kiely
A new limited edition DS3 has surfaced today in the UK, following a collaboration between the French automaker and renowned designer Orla Kiely. In fact, we are talking here about an entire line of exclusive DS3 models that goes by he name of the DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection.

“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 Kiely was quoted as saying in a statement for the press.

Available in four body colors and four different roof designs - featuring Orla’s signature stem or acorn patterns, the special edition vehicles come with colored door mirrors; stem print rear window graphics, and black or white 17” alloy wheels. An Orla Kiely stem graphic also features on the rear tailgate, with a further signature positioned in the middle of the rear spoiler.

Interior highlights include leather seats with Orla Kiely embossed multi-colored headrests, stem or acorn print carpet mats, and color contrasting dashboard and door handle inserts in cream or brown. The DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection is based on the DStyle HDi 90 manual, model including Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

“Citroen has a continuing affinity with the worlds of fashion and design, exemplified by the chic DS and iconic 2CV - archetypal models reflecting the glamour and enduring style of their period.  Orla Kiely’s innovative use of colour and pattern has earned her global praise and recognition. She is the perfect partner for DS3 - which is already TopGear magazine’s Car of the Year and a model fast becoming an icon of its own time,”
added Mark Lloyd, Chief Designer of DS3.

The DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection will be limited to just 500 cars, and is set to go on sale February 1st, priced from GBP16,000 OTR.
