Munich. MINI and The Woolmark Company kick off the new year by announcing their partnership for 2018. The two brands can both claim expertise in the areas of design and innovation, and their collaboration is intended to promote the work of young designers. The early fruits of the partnership – a capsule collection in wool, designed by a series of up-and-coming fashion designers – will be shown in June this year at Pitti Uomo 94, one of the leading international trade shows for men’s fashion and lifestyle, in Florence.

Partnering with The Woolmark Company, one of the most renowned supporters of emerging fashion designers worldwide, is the next step in the MINI brand’s involvement in fashion. Among the projects MINI has unveiled over the past two years are the MINI FLUID FASHION and MINI FASHION – BEYOND NATIVE capsule collections showcasing the work of promising international designers. "MINI is all about iconic design and an urban lifestyle. Like The Woolmark Company, we have a sharp eye for quality and the courage to challenge conventions. We are therefore looking forward to join forces and work together with a new group of innovative young designers," explains Esther Bahne, Head of MINI Brand Strategy and Business Innovation.

MINI and The Woolmark Company both have a history of questioning – and boldly reshaping – existing structures. This shared understanding of the need for innovation underpins the collaboration between the two brands. And so we can expect exciting projects that build on MINI’s design expertise and The Woolmark Company’s many years of experience in materials research and development.

The Pitti Uomo has been held in Florence twice a year since 1972. It promotes young, upcoming and sometimes unconventional fashion labels. MINI has been working with Pitti Immagine, an annual fashion industry fair in Italy, since January 2015. This collaboration opens a window into the partners’ shared passion for innovation, attention to detail and quality, as well as their ability to anticipate new trends.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
