Lexus CT Hybrid Recycled Into Designer Clothing
For a Promotional stunt Lexus challenged four designers to create fashion pieces from parts of a dismantled Lexus CT hybrid. The designer clothing was then photographed being worn by models and the results will be pictured in the January edition of Vogue Magazine.
Lexus claim that the CT Hybrid is 90% recyclable and chose to highlight this fact during this publicity stunt and while most of the fashion pieces look magnificent I don’t think we’ll be seeing them in wardrobes anytime soon.
Environmental Crown of Virtue
