Mini has teamed up with Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg and Kenneth Cole on special one-off designers of the iconic car. The cars will be auctioned off on July 17th, with the proceeds going to the Life Ball in support of the fight against HIV/AIDS.
“Over the past 10 years of supporting the Life Ball, Mini has teamed up with a variety of fashion designers to create unique one-offs to support the largest annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser event. Past collaborations have included the likes of Diesel, Versace and Agent Provocateur, to name just a few. To date the special Minis have raised half a million Euros for the cause. But for the tenth rendition, the Anglo-German automaker has brought in no fewer than three big-name designers to create a trio of specials.
Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa has taken on the new Countryman in stealthy black-on-black; Diane von Furstenberg, a red Mini hatchback with a lip motif; and Kenneth Cole a Mini convertible with industrial-style studs. Each will be auctioned off at the event in Vienna on July 17 to kick off the 18th International AIDS Conference.”
