Everything old is new again… especially when it comes to style. We love when unexpected things are repurposed into something new. And one of the trends we’re digging now is taking seatbelts and turning them into wearable works of fashion.
The MINI brand has always been synonymous with an uber-cool British fast-paced lifestyle. And now, even if you aren’t British, you can steal the look with MINI’s Rooftop Collection.
Whether it’s for a night out on the town or you’re off on holidays, there’s something in this collection to fit your travel needs. Designed to complement the MINI Countryman crossover model, these pieces are made to meet your full range of travel requirements.
The MINI hard-shell suitcases from the Rooftop line are tough and can take the rigors of airplane travel. Adorned with either the Union Jack or Racing Stripes, this suitcase features an extending telescopic handle, two strong carry handles and smooth-running wheels. The main compartment comes with packing belts and a net divider, while the center section has two small side pockets. It also comes with a protective transportation cover, an integrated lock and a nameplate just in case you get separated from your luggage.
The Black Jack Collection luggage line stands out with its classy black finish and tone-in-tone Union Jack motif. This line also includes the Cabin Trolley, which can be used as carry-on because of its smaller size, the Black Jack Briefcase, Black Jack Duffle Bag, small Black Jack Ammo shoulder bag, Black Jack Washkit and the Black Jack Wallet.
And digging deep into its photo archive, MINI picked a few classics to create the Shout accessories line. Boasting eye-catching black-and-white retro MINI motifs, the Shout pieces bring to mind some legendary moments in MINI’s history. In this line you’ll find the Shout Small Doctor Bag sporting a classic Mini Rallye Monte Carlo print, the Shout Bucket Tote with cool Swinging London print, the Shout Messenger with classic Mini motif, and the Shout Wallet Simple and Medium Organizers.
