The marriage of the motor car of the future and fashion
France was the cradle of the Concours d’Elegance in the 1920s and the initiator of these very highlyvalued events in which exceptional cars for the era, often personalised by renowned coachbuilders, were on display accompanied by elegant women wearing the latest fashions created by the great names in French couture.
One of the driving ambitions behind Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille was to revive this glorious epoch by inviting manufacturers and car stylists to display their latest concept cars, the interpretation of the make in question’s future vehicles, by associating them with models in the most beautiful outfits of the fashion houses in a unique parade that has received a rousing welcome from the public.
The owners who are entered for the Concours d’Etat the next day will take part in this rally at the wheel of the Most Beautiful Cars in the World. On the day’s programme is a journey of around 100 km through the luxuriant local forests and the neighbouring regional natural park packed with remarkable historic trees. It will also provide the collectors with the opportunity to discover the many historic monuments in the region before meeting up for lunch in a carefully chosen restaurant.
