By | Lexus News | No Comments

We’ve shared all of the exciting news around this year’s Lexus Design awards, from the eight panelists, to the four chosen finalists, and finally the ultimate winner– Agar Plasticity. Now we are excited to announce the theme for the 2017 Lexus Design Awards– Yet. As of August 10th and through October 16th, Lexus International will be accepting entries that are original and visionary and offer an insightful interpretation of the theme.

Lexus International Executive Vice-President Yoshihiro Sawa, explained the theme in more depth saying, “At Lexus, our Yet philosophy gives us the courage to combine elements that at first seem incompatible – superior ride comfort YET exhilarating driving dynamics – for example. With Yet, we don’t compromise; we harmonize to create synergy that reveals unexpected yet amazing new possibilities. Yet is the catalyst that triggers breakthroughs, the spark that ignites an explosion of creative potential. Yet drives Lexus to explore visionary frontiers of design and technology that will shape tomorrow’s mobility.”

Twelve finalists and their works will be displayed at Milan Design Week 2017, while the top four finalists will be mentored by globally recognized designers in a similar field before getting the opportunity to present their designs to a panel of judges. Lexus will supply 3 million JPY as the maximum production budget per prototype. The winning design will receive the opportunity to bring their prototype to production. The twelve finalists will be announced in early 2017. For more information on judges, mentors, and the competition itself visit LexusDesignAward.com.

Lexus Partners With Zang Toi for Couture Auto Show Apparel

Lexus Partners With Zang Toi for Couture Auto Show Apparel

By | Lexus News | No Comments

September is right around the corner which means Fashion Week! We reported before that Lexus has taken over Mercedes Benz’s role as title sponsor for New York Fashion Week and with one of fashion’s biggest events right around the corner, it makes sense that Lexus would look to fashion designer, Zang Toi to design couture auto show apparel for Lexus Product Specialists to wear during the 2016/2017 season. The line, called Zang Toi Collection for Lexus, will debut it’s couture apparel in September at the Miami Auto Show, while press day looks will be debuted in January 2017 at the North American International Auto Show. According to the official press release the collection will “blend the worlds of high-fashion and luxury vehicles, drawing on the attention to detail and craftsmanship that is a signature of both the fashion designer and the car brand.”

The collection will feature four custom looks (including a hand loomed knit dress and a knit alphabet letter “L” sweater) and will feature intricate details like hand pick stitching on jacket lapels, hand beading, and embroidery on each garment. Mr. Toi personally fitted each team member and will make the items in New York. Zang Toi said about the collaboration, “The Lexus brand stands for unrivaled luxury and an unrelenting approach to perfection and craftsmanship. I wanted to instill a sense of haute-couture that is unique to fashion but is a natural complement to the style and expressiveness already embodied by Lexus vehicles. To have the opportunity to create fashion in a traditionally automotive space was an exhilarating challenge.”

Lexus and Edmonton International Airport Offer Lexus Preferred Parking

Lexus and Edmonton International Airport Offer Lexus Preferred Parking

By | Lexus News | No Comments

The Edmonton International Airport is receiving some backlash after a strategic partnership with Lexus that will offer Lexus preferred parking for 30 out of its 13,500 spots until March 2017. Two competing viewpoints have arisen, one that calls this elitism and one that calls this creative marketing. Heather Hamilton, EIA spokeswoman addressed the controversy saying, “I don’t know that the public generally understands how important parking revenue is. Our revenue last year was a little over $200 million; $58 million of that comes from parking, concessions and advertising. Every dollar that comes to us from that route is a dollar that we don’t have to charge a passenger and we don’t have to charge an airline.” She also assured that they were not enforcing fines on non-Lexus owners who use the preferred parking spots.
L/Studio Presents Junketeers
Recently, we reported on Lexus’s creative content channel, L/Studio which they call “an eclectic collection of unique perspectives meant to inspire you.” Now Lexus will be teaming up with Comedy Central and Kids at Play for a eight-episode scripted series that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the world of celebrity correspondents. The show, titled “Junketeers” was created by two entertainment TV correspondents, Josh Horowitz and Ben Lyons, who aimed to show a satirical look at their profession. The show will star Brian Unger, Austin Lyon, and Phil Augusta Jackson as press junket reporters covering a big film and will feature guest appearances by stars like Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell, and Chloe Grace Moretz. Andrea Lim, Lexus Digital Communications Manager, said this about the new comedy series, “Lexus is always looking for unique ways to connect with our customers. Comedy programs like ‘Junketeers’ reflect the innovation and creativity of the Lexus brand through entertaining and high-caliber content. Working with the creative team behind ‘Junketeers’ demonstrates Lexus’ dedication to supporting bold and diverse programs.”

Do you think more major locations should offer vehicle- specific preferred parking? Would you utilize the special parking?
