Ijin's 1972 Fiat 500

It has been a while since we heard from our friend Philip Goss at Ijin Material. Now for those of you who thought that Phil was just a genius denim professor; you are wrong. Today I received an email from him in which he introduced me to his latest project: Phil Ijin's 1972 custom 500. In his email he wrote to me, Phil said: "I know you at Tenue de Nîmes love the odd shot of a muscle car parked outside the store, but this is the only set of wheels to be seen driving where I live (Italy, ed.). And it is much easier to park. Bought as a demolition wreck, I completely refitted every part, turned it inside and out and specified a modified bi-color livery. Check the blue piped seats (juts visible) and the rare white sun roof and long 'eyelids' on the headlights.
Well, after all, she is the 'other' Italian woman in my life."
I guess I see what the magic is when we talk about Italian women Phil: They are classic, colorful, full of temp and a little small. Right?
