Hyundai has teamed up with fashion designers who are not afraid of daring experiments. The result of this collaboration is a whole line of clothing and accessories made from car parts.

The unusual collection was named Re: Style 2020. It was created using car waste that was recycled. The composition of the collection is varied: from everyday clothes to bags and jewelry. So, used seat belts, foam materials and ordinary car glass were turned into stylish bracelets, necklaces, necklaces and other jewelry. This work was handled by the Alighieri company.

Moreover, in addition to recyclable materials, the designers also used materials more familiar for such work: gold, silver, pearls, bronze. The denim and leather leftover from auto production went to E.L.V.’s overalls. Denim.

But the fabric of the airbags was used by London designer Richard Quinn to create a vintage corset. And to get a stylish shopping bag, the American brand Rosie Assoulin, in addition to seat belts and foam, also took floor mats.

Most often, when recycling cars, their metal parts get new life, and all kinds of consumables – leather, belts, glass – are thrown away.

Hyundai came up with a very original application for them, and the fashion industry not only supported this tone, but also quite successfully implemented it.

In the meantime, Hyundai has launched its first hydrogen-fueled trucks. The first 7 copies were delivered to Switzerland. After the European market, deliveries to the USA and China are planned.
