The Felders called it the perfect complement to their aesthetic, which they described as “elegant with a rock ‘n’ roll edge.”

“The carbon fabrics are amazing and unlike anything we’ve used before; we are honored to be given access to them before anyone else,” they said in a statement. “The woven fiber allows us to do more with the designs and push the boundaries of sustainable fashion. It adds amazing structure and the frayed carbon looks so great as tassels.”

The dress marks the second time Felder Felder has collaborated with the car company. Last September, the sisters decked out a fleet of BMW i3s in their Spring/Summer 2016 “Florida Flamingo” print.
