Paul Smith The Multi-Stripe MINI Exhibition in Singapore
About the Paul Smith Multi-Striped MINI Exhibition
Originally designed as part of the Great Brits minis the 86 striped, 24 colour car appeared at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show, and inspired a run of limited edition minis. The exterior of the car is painted with the signature Multi-Stripe. The attention to detail continues on the inside with a lime green lined boot and glove compartment and instrument gauges made by a company called Smith, changed the engraving to read ‘Paul Smith’.
The mini has been on many adventures including a tour of the US traveling to San Francisco, Las Vegas and Grand Canyon and finally ending up in Los Angeles. The car also attended the 10th Anniversary for the opening of the Dubai store in the Middle East in 2011.
In 2012, the Paul Smith Limited Edition MINI embarks on its first tour of Asia.
The colourful multi-stripe paint job on the exterior of the car has the unmistakable Paul Smith signature – coupled with vivid pops of colour on the interior that are reminiscent of colours used in various suits seen over many collections.
Other clever twists that are characteristically Paul Smith are hidden in the inside details the glove compartment and boot are lined in a lime green colour and the instrument gauges, made by a company called Smith, have been cleverly changed to “Paul Smith”.
This car is a very cool version of a version cool car. If you are in Singapore, try to see this amazing show!
