Following his recent work during Paris Fashion Week, apparel designer-slash-car aficionado Arthur Kar announces his latest collaboration, this time with heralded sports car company Porsche.

Arthur Kar, founder of brand L’art de l’automobile, delves into his past and upbringing that involved the Stuttgart company — Kar began his love of automobile culture quite literally within the cars as a mechanic at the tender age of 16. His connection with Porsche and its timeless designs allowed for his passion for speed and sports cars to blossom, unifying together as well his interest in other sectors of pop culture like the NBA and MTV. In the video above, Kar explains how he is drawn to Porsche’s supercar Carrera GT, which forms the collaboration’s core design. The video continues as he tours the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany, marveling at the sight of ultra exclusive models like the first ever produced GT, 993 Polizei, the legendary 917, a 911 Turbo S, the yet-to-release electric Mission E called TAYCAN as well as a pristine GT1 “Straßenversion” from 1996.

For this collaboration, Arthur Kar and his brand L’art de l’automobile made an exclusive T-shirt that honors both the essence of car culture and a pioneer of the culture itself. We should expect something special to release in the near future between the two brands as well. Porsche’s Carrera GT emblem is found emblazoned on the rear as well as a prominent Porsche crest — the insignia highly displayed by Porsche and its owners. The front remains minimalistic, with Porsche and Carrera GT branding and the contact information for the Centre Porsche dealership in Paris, France across the chest which takes a nod to Kar’s roots as he started his career at that location aged 16 when it was a private dealership called Sonauto.

Look for the exclusive T-shirt to release soon at the L’art de l’automobile online shop. Earlier this year, L’art de l’automobile held a special pop-up party event during Paris Fashion week that celebrated the “Street Legal” cap release.
