Still surrounded by snow in the outer nethers of the capital, and after a slushy wet style shop in London yesterday for a client, I can't think clothes today. Layers and sensible snow wear is not an inspiring look - without my coat to cover up the dullness that lies beneath I'd be in danger of being papped as a bag lady. My central London shopping look was useless for the snow packed streets of home. Today, London and suronds is beset with rain and grey skies, normal business resumed!
So. it was with great cheer that The Luxe Chronicles diverted me from my icy and now wet mire with the news that Citroen is to bring back an updated DS. The DS car is the coolest of the cool and star of many a French nouvelle vague film mainly by chance!
This fashion for retro car revivals is a joy as the updates have all the comfort of modern technology with the soul of past design. My love of French cars of old leads me to make a plea to Renault and bring back the Renault 4 - the car I first fell in love with. My mother had a bright yellow one with a dashboard gear stick. The back seat was really a bench and the car was much loved by the French in the provinces to carry their wares to market! It seems I am not alone, there is a Renault 4 enthusiasts forum!!
What was your first car love and why? Which old banger do you want to see make a return in the 21st century?
