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 values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
