Inspiration comes when you least expect it. It can stop you in your tracks, as the saying goes. Even renowned fashion designers, like Isaac Mizrahi, find inspiration in unexpected places. Mizrahi – an iconic fashion designer – recently paused from the fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle to take a close look at the all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.
“The new Chevy Malibu has great style and smart design,” said Mizrahi. “With its clean lines, crisp shape, and beautiful ice-blue ambient lighting, the Malibu grabs your attention without being over the top. These features truly inspired the look and feel of my limited edition Malibu collection.”
The automotive industry served as inspiration for Mizrahi’s fashion, which in turn serves as inspiration for the Malibu designers. “The fashion industry is a source of inspiration for our design team,” said Chevrolet advertising manager Mary Kubitskey, “and we approach our work with a similar mind set, especially decisions involving color and trim. In fact, we call the Malibu LTZ our signature model because of its fashion forward sense that combines a premium color palette and jewelry-inspired details outside with beautiful stitching, soft-touch materials and textures inside. In turn, it is a great source of inspiration for Isaac’s collection.”
The latest in vehicle innovation for the Chevy Malibu is a dual-cockpit interior that is more spacious, features premium materials and is engineered to be the quietest in the midsize segment. Beyond great visible design, the Malibu comes equipped with the new Chevrolet MyLink connectivity, new safety features and technologies. It is available in ten exterior colors and four interior color combinations.
The Malibu can also be considered a savvy choice with its variety of fuel-saving features including exterior surfaces that make the vehicle more slippery when traveling through air, automatic shutters located in the front grille on select models, underbody panels that move air flow under and away from the car, and more. These aerodynamic improvements give customers up to 2.5 miles per gallon more on the highway.
The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is available now but the Mizrahi Malibu Collection will be available October 16 in limited quantities exclusively on LivingSocial’s Shop, LivingSocial’s first foray into physical products featuring themed collections of unique, curated merchandise.
