BMW Art Car Capsule Collection inspired by Alexander Calder.

An eye-catcher that attracts everyone's attention: BMW M Motorsport and Puma present another limited edition BMW Art Car Capsule Collection.

17 June 2024

THE FIRST ART CAR.

Das erste Art Car.Das erste Art Car.

The new collection is a tribute to the very first Art Car, a BMW 3.0 CSL. Alexander Calder (1898-1976), one of the most important sculptors of American modernism, laid the foundation for the BMW Art Car Collection in 1975 with the BMW 3.0 CSL racing car. The Art Cars form a series that is still unique today as a fusion of culture, technology and a passion for motorsport.

INTENSE COLOURS.

As with his sculptures and mobiles, Calder also relied on intense colours and curved shapes for the first BMW Art Car in history, which he spread generously over the wings, bonnet and roof. Like the racing car, like the collection: Colour blocking is the name of the trend towards strong but clearly contrasting colours, which the racing car and BMW Art Car Capsule Collection pick up on. Both the colours and the graphics of the car can be found on the summery outfit, which consists of a shirt, shorts, two T-shirts, a baseball cap and a pair of sneakers, all of which are available separately.

BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHIRT.

The BMW M Motorsport AC Shirt catches the eye with a Calder-inspired all-over print in bold colour blocking, plus the artist’s initials embroidered on the right side of the chest and an embroidered PUMA logo on the left. A woven BMW M Motorsport label on the inside and another on the left-hand side combine with the colour-coordinated strip of buttons, distinctive collar and casual fit to create a sporting appearance.

BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHORTS.

The BMW M Motorsport AC Shorts share the relaxed cut and confident colouring of the shirt and extend the look with a signature PUMA embroidered logo on the left leg and a woven BMW M label on the back pocket edging. The elasticated waistband has a drawstring for a better fit and the handy side pocket offers a secure place to carry items such as car keys. Both the BMW M Motorsport AC Shirt and the BMW M Motorsport AC Shorts are made from 75 per cent new cotton and 25 per cent recycled cotton.

BMW M MOTORSPORT AC1 and AC2 TEE.

The collection also includes a pair of white T-shirts, both of which are made from 30 per cent recycled and 70 per cent reclaimed cotton. They are extremely comfortable to wear and, with their oversized cut, radiate urban cool. The BMW M Motorsport AC1 has a colour blocking print inspired by Alexander Calder’s BMW Art Car on the front and his embroidered initials on the right-hand side of the chest. A woven BMW M Motorsport inside label and another label on the left-hand seam add the finishing touches to the T-shirt. With a large BMW Art Car print on the back, discreet logos inspired by the BMW Art Car on the chest and a BMW M Motorsport label on the inside and on the side seam, the BMW M Motorsport AC2 Tee also cuts an unmistakable figure.

BMW M MOTORSPORT AC CAP.

The BMW M Motorsport AC Cap likewise picks up on the colour blocking approach inspired by Calder’s BMW Art Car. This five-panel baseball cap is also adorned by a woven BMW M Motorsport logo on the side and an embroidered PUMA logo on the peak. An adjustable, premium-quality metal clasp ensures a secure fit on any head.

BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SNEAKER SUEDE.

The BMW BMW M Motorsport AC Sneaker Suede rounds off the collection. Based on the iconic PUMA sneaker which has been delighting fans for 50 years now, the predominantly red suede shoe impresses with woven PUMA Formstrips on both sides and graphic detailing on the inside of the tongue. The PUMA logo badge on the front is complemented by a BMW metal pin on the heel.
