Industrial designer Marc Newson for Beretta:
Marc has designed for big names such as Pentax, G-Star Raw (clothing), Samsonite, Alessi, and more. He’s currently employed at Apple, allegedly working on super secret projects on a part-time basis. Dude is legit AF basically.
More pictures and specs on the Beretta website. I can’t say I’m all that impressed with this 486 remix of his. I mean it’s “nice” for what it is… but I expected some forward thinking, not just some engraving and minor improvements in ergonomics etc. You can check out the look and specs of the original 486 Parallelo here. I have no idea what the price on either is.
Like James (below) said, maybe this will lead the way for a Coogi Glock or a Mugatu Deagle, if fashion and firearms designers are cross pollenating. I really want to photoshop a Biggie Smalls Coogi Glock right now, but I also want to get to bed so I can get up early to eat donuts and smile at females in business attire with those high leather autumn boots we all love, so you guys miss out. Priorities. *loop Just Playing (Dreams) but replace the word “R&B” with “TACTICAL” when you sing it in your head*. I’m just playin… I’m sayin…
Thoughts? Insta-cop if price wasn’t a likely issue?
