The Mustang Unleashed Collection

Question: What happens when you take five of the world’s most visionary fashion designers, throw in a few thousand yards of fabric, and inspire them with the 2015 Ford Mustang? Answer: The Mustang Unleashed Collection.

To celebrate this monumental anniversary, Ford partnered with Anna Sui, ROGAN, Paula Cademartori, CO|TE and Pamela Love. Each designer was asked to create three original pieces inspired by what makes the Mustang a Mustang and what distinguishes the people that drive one – namely their energy, their love of adventure, and their thirst for life.

The result? A Mustang-inspired line of 15 shirts that embodies the thrill of being behind the wheel of one of the world’s most legendary cars.

Wearing your passion on your sleeve.

Everything from the vehicle’s shape to the unique patterns inspired by the Mustang’s iconic pony found its way into the designers’ creative visions, so it was clear that the fashion icons loved the brand as much as we do.

“It was an honour [to be contacted by Ford for this project] because Ford is an important company in terms of the last 100 years in design culture,” said Scott Mackinlay Hahn, co-founder of ROGAN & LOOMSTATE. “To have a car that transcends all the technology improvements and updates, efficiencies and changes is a big deal.” Not only did Mackinlay Hahn’s company provide designs for the project, his company produced all 15 shirts in the United States using organic and sustainable materials.
