To drive a MINI is to make a statement. To wear MINI is now equally so. On the occasion of the 88th Pitti Uomo, MINI got together with six talented young Italians and the heads behind the Pitti Uomo gentleman’s fashion fair to design the first MINI Capsule Collection. The upshots are six premium accessories that combine Italian craftsmanship with creative and innovative details – inspired by the new MINI Clubman.
They’re young, they love unconventionality and they are masters of their art: in a symbiotic partnership the creative personalities behind the brands SuperDuper, TYG Spectacles, Alberto Premi and Pijama, along with perfumer Paola Bottai and the Proraso team with illustrator Pietro Nicolaucich, joined forces with MINI to design and create the “MINI Gentleman’s Collection inspired by MINI Clubman”. What they came up with are cool fashion classics that encounter a modern design idiom. The designers were inspired by Italy’s pulsating fashion scene, traditional bespoke men’s tailoring and handcraftsmanship – mastered in equal measure by all – and the new MINI Clubman that celebrates its world premiere in 2015. The six gentleman’s accessories comprise a hat, a pair of sunglasses, a pair of shoes, a bag, a fragrance and a shaving kit.
