DSQuared² Presents Life Ball Mini 2011 - Web Exclusive

Among its striking features are the front guard, rally headlamps, tinted side windows with grilles and the spare tire on the tailgate.

May 23, 2011

Dean and Dan Caten, better known as the Canadian designer duo DSQUARED², unveiled their exclusive Life Ball Mini 2011 in Vienna. The twin brothers refashioned a Mini Cooper S to ensure it would be armed for adventures of all kinds.

Among its striking features are the front guard, rally headlamps, tinted side windows with grilles and the spare tire on the tailgate. When it came to the interior, the two designers installed a compass to help you head in the right direction, while floormats made of structured aluminum sheeting protect the inside from dirt. The trademark DSQUARED² maple leaf on the leather head restraints and doors rounds off the cabin.

Dean and Dan are delighted with the result: "Our Mini 'Red Mudder' is 100 per cent DSQUARED²." This one-off will be gliding along the red carpet at the legendary Life Ball when Mini again supports Europe's biggest AIDS charity event for the 11th time. Each year a one-off Mini is created for the Life Ball, the proceeds of which support projects combating HIV/AIDS.

Since 2001 more than 500,00 euros has been generated by these specially styled Life Ball Minis on behalf of Aids Life. In previous years, designers such as Agent Provocateur, Donatella Versace, Diesel, Missoni and Gianfranco Ferré obliged with their own designs for a Life Ball Mini.
