Inspired by an autocross cone, just in time for race season.
The first day of March marks a sign of warmer things to come. While some of us are still getting beaten down with wind and chilly air, just saying the month out loud acts as a glimmering beacon of hope for spring.
Today, we also start an important countdown — only 19 more days until the first Formula 1 race of the season. The boys will be back in town at the Australian Grand Prix on Sunday, March 20 and we're anxiously waiting to see them battle it out again this year. In the spirit of Formula 1 quickly approaching and the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship well underway, we're ready to revisit the coolest automotive inspired pieces that popped up during fashion month last fall and will be here just in time for race season.
Taking a peak at the eccentric Moschino collection designed by Jeremy Scott, I can't help but feel a little nostalgic, mainly because of the fact most of the pieces look like they were inspired by an autocross course. Traffic cone theme dresses, handbags, and shoes, align with a heavy motorsports theme, is what made this particular show so fun.
Then again, what if you're not in the market for a toolbox shaped handbag (even though we want you to be) there are some more subtle ways to hit some of the cool automotive inspired accessories for spring. In the form of chic driving gloves and watches, updated driving moccasins and sporty racing stripes on handbags, there are plenty of pieces fitting for the pit lane.
