Designer Luxury At American Motors

"Semi-fitted, buttoned jacket is lined and has patch pockets, ribbon details" - from envelope

Pattern Vault has more on this Gucci lite pattern

I saw this Vogue pattern in the catalog and it immediately made me think of this:

Yes, the 1970s AMC Gucci Hornet

My boss' mom had one, and as I understand it this was the car he drove to high school. He did not tell me this story in a positive voice. No, he has no photos.

The king of licencing, Pierre Cardin, and the AMC Javelin

Go check these links out: there's more photo goodness.

AMC did several collaborations/refits with designers
And of course, Oleg Cassini's AMC Matador

  1. I really don't care for the V1613 pattern, something about the Gucci trim always looks cheap to me. So do these car interiors. At least there is one designer I don't lust after. It's all good. LOL

    1. The Gucci car was not the babe magnet for my boss. The ribbon trim....I dunno. No. Always good to have something you really don't want.
