Arthur Kar Went From Washing Cars to Crashing Lamborghinis for Fashion
We follow Kar as he raps along to Drake and rubs elbows with Virgil Abloh, Heron Preston and Bella Hadid.
Following up on Blondey McCoy’s episode of our DIARIES series, we return with a closer look at a day in the life of Parisian car dealer and fashion designer Arthur Kar. Set during last month’s Paris Fashion Week, Kar launched his Lamborghini Diablo-starring “Crash Test” exhibit, a coming-of-age event for his emerging label L’Art de L’Automobile.
Before the event’s opening, Kar walks us through his showroom of priceless sports cars, touching on his roots as a car washer as a youth, the cool factor of scratched Ferraris and the value of his friendship with creatives like Heron Preston and Poggy. At the exhibition, Kar, wearing the ultra-limited Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 “White,” showcases his brand’s limited-edition merch alongside the ’90s-era Lamborghini, with influencers like Luka Sabbat and Sarah Andelman stopping by for a chat. Later on, Kar hops in a Ferrari to stop at The Broken Arm and his favorite Japanese restaurant in Paris.
