When an automotive icon encounters a fashion symbol, one gets the DS3 Ines de La Fressange, a model of inimitable style and which cannot be overlooked. Limited to an edition of 500, this unique and elegant object makes its mark with a strong identity.Former mannequin and the iconic face of Chanel, creator and stylist of fashion, jewellery and perfumes, business woman and fashion journalist – Inès de La Fressange is a symbol of the 80’s with her omnipresence. She is a must and central figure in the chic Parisian fashion scene, and she is the first model to sign an exclusive contract with a haute couture house and the first mannequin in the history of fashion to become a star which is so very much in the media and has achieved great popularity. In 1991 she created her own brand “Ines de La Fressange” and her own boutique de prêt-à-porter in Paris, which had an immediate success.

When she dresses up the DS3, she dons the car a Bleu Encre or Blue Ink color, with a Blanc Opale or Opale White color for the roof of the sedan, and a Black Cloth for the Cabrio. She finishes everything off with coloring the rearview mirrors and the wheel covers in “Red Ines”. Being very refined, the model bears of course the signatures of the House Ines de la Fressange Paris: the seats, covered in granite blue grained leather, are decorated with a three coloured “airmail” pattern, just like the contours of the mats, upholstery padding and rear window surrounds, underlining a certain French elegance. With subtle details like the Brand badge on the door sill, the name Ines de La Fressange Paris on the leather backrests of the front seats and the “Leo” animal symbol – the mascot of the House – embossed on the dashboard, DS3 and DS3 Cabrio Ines de La Fressange btrethe their soul of Parisian chic.
