To make the handsome DS3 even more appealing to the fashion-obsessed Brits, Citroen teamed up with renowned designer, Orla Kiely to present a limited edition of the car. Citroen DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection is limited to 500 units and features the designer’s iconic style inside and out.

The DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection comes in four body colours; four different roof designs – featuring Orla’s signature stem or acorn patterns; coloured door mirrors; stem print rear window graphics; and black or white 17” alloy wheels. All models also feature an Orla Kiely stem graphic plus a further signature positioned in the middle of the rear spoiler.

Inside the cabin, leather seats are garnished with their Orla Kiely embossed multi-coloured headrests; there’s also stem or acorn print carpet mats; and colour contrasting dashboard and door handle inserts in cream or brown.

The DS3 by Orla Kiely Collection is based on the DStyle HDi 90 manual, a generously specified model including Bluetooth® and USB connectivity, which is powered by a fuel and CO2 efficient powerplant. The car goes from 1st February 2011, priced from just £16,000.

Orla Kiely commented: “Collaborating with Citroën and DS3 was such an exciting project as it’s so different from all my previous work.  I love the designs we’ve created and the way they’re incorporated into the car!”

Mark Lloyd, Chief Designer of DS3, added; “Citroën has a continuing affinity with the worlds of fashion and design, exemplified by the chic DS and iconic 2CV – archetypal models reflecting the glamour and enduring style of their period.  Orla Kiely’s innovative use of colour and pattern has earned her global praise and recognition. She is the perfect partner for DS3 – which is already TopGear magazine’s Car of the Year and a model fast becoming an icon of its own time.”
