Mini Hong Kong has invited three past Young Fashion Designers’ Contest winners and finalists to create fashion collections inspired by new models of its cars.
The Mini SS19 collections will be unveiled – on September 13 at Mini’s newly revamped showroom in Wan Chai, along with the cars: the new Mini Hatch and special-edition Mini Countryman Black.
The local designers – Matt Hui and Lillian Tsang from YLY Studio, Wilson Choi from Redemptive, and Yeung Chin – were tasked to craft innovative Mini-inspired windbreakers exhibiting their own unique flare and style within each design for charity sale.
The exclusive Mini x YDC windbreakers will be available for purchase at HK$880 in limited quantities on the night, with all proceeds going to the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to
establish the Mini Hong Kong Scholarship, which aims to support and nurture outstanding fashion design students.
Matt Hui from YLY Studio drew inspiration from Mini’s physical image and ITS new Emerald Grey colour to create a fashion-forward windbreaker combining “classic and futuristic looks”.
Wilson Choi from Redemptive creatED a military-inspired windbreaker coloured in Mini colours Midnight Black and Emerald Grey.
Yeung Chin championed the iconic Union Jack in his design, using stylish motifs on a bold windbreaker which displays a contrasting palette of Mini colours Solaris Orange and Piano Black.
