Fashion, Design, MINIs Merge In London's MINI Pop-up Shop

For the London Olympics MINI established a pop-up shop at the Westfield-Stratford shopping center.  PSFK discusses the shop's appearance:
Just a pair of MINI’s two newest models will be on display with the majority of the space within the store dedicated to merchandising MINI’s fashion and accessory products. The goal was to showcase the brand in a completely different context from a traditional dealership setting.

The interior decor follows MINI’s dominant use of black and white. A series of display cases wrap the wall and ceiling of the entry creating a checker board effect. LED lighting which changes color aids in grabbing the attention of passing shoppers.

Several pieces of retail technology allows customers to virtually browse both the MINI automotive and lifestyle product lines. An interactive mirror serves as a virtual fitting room, allowing customers to try on outfits without removing their clothes. An innovative Mini car configurator displays vehicles in 3D.

The shop is expected to remain through Spring 2013.
