Ron Arad has collaborated with Huntsman tailors and Morgan Motor Company to create a bespoke car suit, which was displayed in the window of 11 Savile Row.
Inspired by the protection blankets covering cars in the street, Ron began sketching what he imagined to be the cars under cover, these sketches then woven into car covers. For his annual exhibit in the Royal Academy Summer exhibition, Arad collaborated with renowned car manufacturer Morgan about creating an art piece to cover one of their models.
Thinking of the cover as a bespoke garment in this respect, Arad approached Huntsman, the most innovative tailor on Savile Row, to stitch the cover for the vehicle. Bringing the heritage of Morgan and bespoke tailoring process-perfected with Huntsman for over 170 years together.
To display the cover, Ron worked on re-imagining a Morgan car, using parts of old vehicles to create an installation piece that is of itself a work of art. The piece was hand-painted and assembled in his workshop.
