MINI Releases Fashion Accessories Line
MINI is known for its line of unique vehicles that mix the classic with the contemporary. MINI is not, however, known for its fashion designs… until now, that is. The automaker has collaborated with six Italian artists to create The MINI Gentleman’s Collection—a line of six accessories designed to help you stand out in the crowd.

The line is said to be inspired by the new MINI Clubman—essentially a larger version of the original Cooper. Its body is 10 inches longer, and it boasts 3.5 cubic feet more space. The six artists designed their pieces around the new Clubman, which will debut this year. The collection includes a hat, sunglasses, shoes, a bag, a shaving kit, and a fragrance. The pieces will be unveiled during the Pitti Uomo menswear show at this year’s Pitti Immagine—an Italian trade fair that has a focus on the latest fashion. The Pitti Uomo show has been held twice a year in Florence since 1972.
The six artists/designers responsible for designing the pieces are SuperDuper (hat), TYG Spectacles (sunglasses), Alberto Premi (shoes), Pijama (bag), Paola Bottai (fragrance), and Proraso (shaving kit).
Look out for the 2016 Clubman, which will make its world premier sometime this year.
