Automobile maker Infiniti partnered with online fashion retailer and fashion designers Thom Browne and Zac Posen to create two designer Infiniti Q50 luxury sedans.

Browne’s version of the luxury sedan had a mirrored chrome finish on the outside and featured his signature red, white and blue stripe on the upholstery and other elements of the interior.

Posen’s designer sedan had an ombre style finish — matte silver at the front and gradually turns to a glossy dark gray color at the back. For the interior of the car, Posen incorporated red leather and velvet with stingray skin for the accents.



The two customized Infiniti Q50’s will be toured in five cities and showcased along with luxury items in pop-up stores also designed by Browne and Posen.

At the end of the tour, the cars will be sold for $75,000 each on A part of the proceeds will be given to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.¬†Matching accessories designed by the two designers will also be sold on along with the cars.
