The latest researchers confirm it: six out of ten drivers, car body colors and interiors are among the most important elements when choosing a new vehicle. A rule that applies both to new models and timeless classics which, as we know very well, have a very special connection with style and color.
After having previously spoken about the British Racing Green, today we would like to rediscover the meaning behind, along with the iconic cars in related to, one of the more charming colors that have inspired the collections of driving gloves, pocket squares, ties, bow ties and travel bags by The Outlierman: this time around it’s all about the black and red duo.
Two defined and definitive colors, black and red; shades that, even when taken individually, are equivalent in strong character statements. When combined they become more expressive in a balance between the power of black, eleganant and refined, with the impetuous passion of red, radiating immense life force that has traditionally been linked to speed for its association with cars that have made their mark in motoring history, such as Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Jaguar, Maserati.
The vehicle's personality is just as important as the driver's. Together, they can create something completely unique and potentially unstoppable. It is absolutely not a coincidence that the combination of black and red have appeared on numerous occasions on the body of cars of many racing champions.
Now, back to the language of colors, those who choose a car that combine black and red tend to be confident and difficult to manipulate. These are people who are able to balance logic and pure instincts, reflexivity and extroversion in a way that allows them to enjoy the taste of life in a personal way, full and distinctive.
Black and red, a bold pairing, expressive and powerful. Colors that are easy to find in the collections of leather and silk accessories by The Outlierman, dedicated to those who drive and live out their style in exactly the same way: in the highest gear and constantly accelerating ahead.
