French auto brands Renault and Citroen are both set to debut cars in partnership with fashion brands at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

Citroen has partnered with Lacoste to create the Citroen Lacoste concept, which the automaker described as "an emblem for a state of mind and a lifestyle".

The compact car, which features golf-ball style wheels and pearlescent white paint, allows passengers to enjoy what Citroen describes as "an open air experience" - the automaker has opted for a door-less buggy style design with no roof which it says will "inevitably heighten the senses".

In case of bad weather, the tennis-themed vehicle features an auto-inflatable hood which deploys along the car's central backbone to form a soft-top roof.

For its part, Renault will be premiering a Twingo dressed by the international female fashion brand Miss Sixty.

The first all-feminine Twingo, which Renault says matches a "glamorous exterior with a rock'n'roll interior", will be available in "Bohemian Pink" or "Pearlescent Black" and offers exclusive equipment.

Details include a pink-rimmed tachometer and speedometer, a pink-stitched steering wheel and pearlescent black door mirror housings.

The vehicle is set to go on sale in November 2010.

The Paris Motor Show runs October 2-17.
