2010 Life Ball MINI Trio of Cars to Be Auctioned
As we previously reported, Francisco Costa has designed the MINI Countryman, Diane von Furstenberg the MINI Hatch, while Kenneth Cole had a MINI Convertible to tweak.
First off, the roof and alloys on von Furstenberg’s MINI create a contrast in pure white, and the bonnet is adorned with the designer’s initials.
“Life is love, love is life! I wanted to create something that celebrates life and reminds us of the importance of health. The red colour of the MINI expresses the awareness of HIV/AIDS, the lips represent Diane von Furstenberg. This car is bursting with life and love,” the designer stated.
On the other hand, Cole’s MINI is made of fine, brushed metal covered in studs, which are also reflected in the interior.
“In our collection we always aim to bring fashion and function into harmony. And that is precisely what the MINI Convertible stands for. It is at once an elegant and functional car. We designed the body in brushed metal, in line with our autumn/winter accessories line, and lent it our hallmark signature. We hope the MINI will give pleasure to followers of fashion and auto fans alike and command a high price in the amfAR auction,” Cole said.
Francisco Costa’ MINI Countryman is finished in matte black, each of the front doors bearing the hallmark signature of the Calvin Klein Collection in black reflective rubber.
