Typically Paul Smith collaborations have involved adding splashes of color. For the Mini Strip, things were removed instead. With an eye on sustainability, the aptly-named Strip is a custom one-off that began as a completely stripped-down three-door Mini Cooper SE. Only those elements deemed absolutely necessary were added back: not even exterior color made the cut, with the raw metal covered only by a protective layer of transparent paint. Some parts were created using recycled materials and held in place by visible screws, while the minimalist steering wheel is wrapped in handlebar tape and the center screen removed entirely, replaced instead by the driver's smartphone. Smith's signature stripes still made the cut, though, hidden on the inside of the doors and visible when they're open.
