Fashion accessories from the MINI Lifestyle Collection.
MINI Countryman Seats
With the perfect amount of space for weekend getaways, the new MINI Countryman, the brand's first 4 WD with 4 individual seats and 4 doors, has brought with it some extra perks for your outdoor enjoyment. The comfortable MINI Countryman Seats ($50) represent a veritable invitation to sit back and relax whether for a day at the Polo or a chilled beach BBQ. The folding wooden chairs, with their durable canvas surface in easy Racing Check or stylised Union Jack look, are sure to attract envious eyes. Roomy outside pockets can be attached to the sides of the seats using press studs, and make a handy stowage area for barbeque tools and other excursion necessities. The folding chairs can also be converted into a table with the help of an additional wooden board. A carry bag provides a neat way to whisk the Countryman Seats from one spot to the next, displaying MINIs know-how in all things compact.
Refreshment is the order of the day for any outdoor trip with the MINI Cooler ($126). This stylish drinks cooler has room for up to four large bottles (1 – 1.5 litres), and its Black Union Jack design makes it the perfect complement to the MINI Countryman folding chairs. The bag comes with aluminium insulation on its inside and a separate zip pocket on the back. An adjustable shoulder strap allows cool drinks to be ferried to thirsty mouths with a minimum of fuss.
MINI Pop Style Umbrella
When the going gets hot and sunny, the MINI Pop Style Umbrella ($63) gets going with some welcome shade. The colourful brolly in MINI Pop Art look à la Andy Warhol is a real eye-catcher. Its Fibertec® spokes are extremely durable, and a special coating gives it impressive dirt-repelling characteristics. The brolly opens and closes automatically at the touch of a button. A special feature is its handle, which mimics the form of a MINI gear selector.
Whether embarking on a business trip or heading off on holiday, every frequent traveller needs a reliable companion by their side. So luckily MINI gives people on the move all the support they need. The white Rooftop Pilot ($267) with black Racing Stripes is a hard-wearing item of travel gear for business and leisure, and comes equipped with a retractable telescopic handle, robust carry handle and easy-rolling wheels. Inside the case are organised compartments for clothes, documents and your mobile phone and pens. These can be joined by a laptop case, which allows you to keep your computer separate when travelling. Reinforced edges and a rubber-coated base make this hard-shell case extremely durable, and the integrated lock and transportation cover deliver the requisite protection. Plus, the nameplate ensures that the case is easy to retrieve in the event of it being mislaid in action.
Men’s Rocker T-Shirt
The new MINI Shirt line-up will rock any casual summer outfit. Music fans will find their heads turned by the grey Men’s Rocker T-Shirt ($41), with its electric guitar print on the chest and blue contrast stitching lending extra emphasis to the shoulder areas.
Ladies Guitar Shirt
The pleasantly soft-to-the-touch Ladies Guitar Shirt ($41) sports a bold shade of red and has an awesome “MINI Rocks” print with crossed electric guitars on the front. Both the men’s and ladies shirt styles come in high-quality cotton and are designed to deliver optimum comfort and durability.
