ALL-NEW RENAULT ARKANA: HYBRID BY NATURE

Thierry Henry & Sophie Ellis-Bextor reveal how there’s a hybrid in all of us 

Exceeding market expectations and changes in regulations

They are most well known as ‘Football legend’ Thierry Henry & ‘Disco Queen’ Sophie Ellis-Bextor, but what about the sides to these famous personalities that we don’t usually see? Together with Renault they embark on a journey to reveal the lesser known sides to their characters, encapsulating their distinct hybrid personas.

Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry is a football legend, but what about the other sides of him that you don’t always see? In contrast to Thierry’s legendary position as a striker, a huge part of his role is in defence; the mental affect that professional football can have. But with his experience comes a voice, one that wants to bring attention and change.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Sophie Ellis-Bextor; Disco Queen. But there was a Sophie before her disco career. Starting her music love affair in an indie-pop band, Sophie still uses aspects of that person to help write music today. Just as she says about a piece of vintage clothing, there is a person before your current self and there will be different facets to that person in years to come.

"The Legend"

Renault EZ-ULTIMO

Considered one of the greatest strikers of all time and one of the greatest players in the history of the Premier League, he is a football legend. But what about the other sides of him that you don’t always see?

"The Unseen Defender"

Renault Sport

In contrast to Thierry’s legendary position as a striker, a huge part of his role  is in defence. Being one of the most scrutinised and publicised footballers in premiership history carries with it a whole world of introspection. 

"The Activist"

Renault 4CONTROL

Thierry is a football legend - As a coach, manager, pundit and player, he is also an important and un-ignorable voice of experience to draw attention and bring change.

"Disco Queen"

Renault EZ-ULTIMO

From chart topping pop vocals to lockdown Kitchen Discos, Sophie is well known for being the Queen of all things sequinned and feel-good. But her inspiration can often come from the other sides of her personality that we don’t always get to see. 

"Indie Beginnings"

Renault Sport

Before her solo career beneath the glitter ball, Sophie’s love affair with music was ignited by the Brit Pop scene in the 90s when she began singing in an Indie band called TheAudience. Be it through her song writing, or when going on tour, she still carries her Indie heart with her today.

"Vintage Curator"

Renault 4CONTROL

Whether through her writing, or interviewing for her podcast Sophie is fascinated by people and their stories. So it’s no surprise she’s so passionate about discovering vintage gems. Thinking about the life they’ve had before, and may well have after, it excites her to be just a chapter in its story.
