Chevrolet and famed fashion designer Issac Mizrahi recently teamed up to design a limited collection of stylish wardrobe pieces inspired by the 2013 Chevy Malibu. These fashion-forward pieces are designed to reflect the spirit of the Chevy Malibu and the woman who would drive it–stylish, practical, and hard-working.
Mizrahi came, he saw, and he dreamed up designs that weave in some of his favorite Malibu features, like the cool blue of the car’s available ambient lighting, the bright red pop of the tail lights, and the Malibu’s sophisticated interior contrast stitching.
The entire collection is available through Living Social.
True Blue Double-Handle Tote Bag
Is cobalt the new black? It could be, if you splurge on this gorgeous, limited-edition tote, inspired by the mood-boosting ambient blue lighting of the Malibu. Stow your stuff in the cotton-lined main compartment, and stash your phone in one of the mobile pockets. A chrome “I” for Isaac accents the look. $260
Malibu Driving Moccasin
To truly look fabulous from head to toe, you need statement-making shoes. This limited-edition pair says it all with buttery-soft Napa leather and a vibrant burst of poppy red that’ll stop traffic faster than the Malibu’s ruby tail lamps. These dapper driving moccasins are a smart and stylish indulgence thanks to quilted, cushioned insoles for added comfort. $110
Quilted Black Leather Jacket
Layer on luxury with this sleek, limited-edition jacket made with 100% genuine leather. Isaac took a cue from the rich, indulgent interior of the Malibu to create a refined design for your exterior. Slip it on over anything—the diamond-patterned quilting adds a subtle dose of textural intrigue, and the barely belled three-quarter sleeves boast a ribbed knit finish that looks chic day or night. With a slim fit and luxe satin lining, this timeless piece is the ultimate smart splurge—one that only gets better with age. $298
Silk Crepe Blouse
Instantly invigorate your wardrobe with this stylish blouse, a sophisticated fall essential. A welcome alternative to white, this robin’s egg blue top is made of soft, silk crêpe. The slightly fitted silhouette and curved hem make this separate shine solo or as part of a layered ensemble. Thoughtful elements such as hidden buttons and intricate pocket detailing add a fashionable edge that’ll make you reach for this contemporary piece often. $140
Poppy Red Skinny Jeans
Want the skinny on perfectly tailored pants with a twist? Slip into the limited-edition Malibu skinny jean, Isaac’s take on colored jeans with a sophisticated and polished look. The poppy red, coated cotton material takes its inspiration from the look and feel of leather, while a touch of stretch in the fabric makes these bold jeans as figure-flattering as they are fun. $73
Oversized Blue Boyfriend Watch
You’re a pro at turning your boyfriend’s button-down shirts into belted dresses, but this limited-edition accessory lets you borrow that relaxed, casual-chic vibe for your everyday look. The oversized face will punch up any outfit, while slick silver detailing lends a dash of daintiness. $110
