Lincoln Black Label - AutomotiveSTYLE

Lincoln, the luxury automobile brand, previewed Lincoln Black Label, a collection of ultra-premium exterior and interior themes mated to an even higher level of personal services and experiences that mark the next step in the brand’s reinvention! Now you know how I feel about style and the Black Label is the epitome of style as it relates to automotive.

Showcased on an all-new MKZ and the MKC Concept, Lincoln Black Label eventually will be available on every new Lincoln vehicle. This full-range availability enables more vehicles in the model portfolio to be equipped with this higher-level expression of luxury than currently offered by any competitor.

The Center Stage theme for Lincoln Black Label includes Diamond-L perforated Alcantara® accented with Foxfire color mesh on the seats and door panels.

Unique design elements are found throughout Lincoln Black Label vehicles. Jewel-like accents called “Satin Star” plating adorn the seat on head restraints and side shields. Multi-finish premium paint and chrome complements the wheel design.
The designers started with more than a dozen concepts before narrowing to the three themes previewed ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance: Center Stage, Indulgence and Modern Heritage.
Center Stage, my favorite of inspired by fashion and theater, is designed for the most expressive clients. The Jet Black interior is highlighted by a Foxfire Red headliner, capturing the drama of being in a dark theater with the impact of a rich, deep red accent color. Alcantara suede with uniquely designed perforation adds plush texture to the doors and seats.
Indulgence is inspired by the lure of premium chocolate to ignite a rich sensory experience. Ganache- and Truffle-colored Venetian leather with a subtle antiqued finish adds richness and depth. The Ziricote wood trim features a beautiful natural grain and color inherent in the wood with no added dyes or stains. This wood, while new to the automotive industry, is often seen in high-end yachts.
Modern Heritage offers a fresh take on the classic black-and-white interior with subtle red accents. Designed for the client who appreciates a clean, modern aesthetic, the soft white interior is warm and inviting. Renewed and engineered wood trim – imbued with metal flake between its layers – creates a sparkling effect to stylishly highlight this modern classic design.
This attention to detail is also given to tightly controlled stitch seams and thread color coordination. Now if that doesn't sound like fashion's newest collection, I don't know what does!
