A LOOK BACK AT GOODWOOD REVIVAL.
CELEBRATING THE SWINGING SIXTIES.
We whisked the fabulously dressed Goodwood-goers back in time to Cooper Street – our interactive area inspired by the cultural revolution of 1960s London. Think a retro corner shop, traditional screen-printing station and plenty of movin’ and groovin’.
We enjoyed performances from a marching brass band and the amazing a cappella trio, The Charlalas, while a sixties-style flash mob took guests by (swinging) surprise. The highlight on Cooper Street? That had to be the original 1959 Mini Morris-Minor. Revolutionising small car design when it was crafted by Alec Issigonis, you can still clearly see the parallels between this 63-year-old icon and the MINIs of today.
A SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE.
Inspired by the modernism of the 1960s, we showcased two Mini masterpieces by celebrated British designer and long-time partner, Paul Smith. The first was his legendary 1998 Paul Smith Edition Blue Mini, which we’ve given an exciting electric upgrade as part of our pioneering MINI Recharged project. The second was The MINI Strip – a completely stripped back version of the MINI Electric that’s all about celebrating the beauty in simplicity and the importance of sustainability.
And who better to introduce this dynamic duo than the designer himself? That’s right, Sir Paul Smith joined us at Goodwood Revival to chat about the cars on display, his design inspiration and favourite fashion trends from the 1960s. Give the full interview a watch here.
