ELECTRIFYING PARTNERSHIPS.

BMW i BRAND PARTNERSHIPS.

BMW i is a pioneer of ground-breaking, visionary technologies, so it comes as no surprise that it’s quick to seek out like-minded innovators. Whether it’s fascinating projects with partners from the fields of art, culture, design and architecture or cooperation projects with other premium brands offering products that are the perfect complement to BMW i vehicles – BMW i always thinks beyond the automobile.

What happens when BMW i partners with mrporter.com, the prizewinning online platform for the style-driven male? A limited edition, one-of-a-kind BMW i3 featuring the unique MR PORTER design. This head turning BMW i3 is the perfect companion for fashion-oriented men who value a dash of extravagance. 

In this premium edition BMW i3, characteristic features have been enhanced with numerous exceptional highlights. The vehicle’s exclusive tuxedo blue exterior is offset with white accents on the side mirrors, door sills and kidney grilles, and there’s hand-painted white accent lines with Mr Porter lettering. The style flows on into the interior with a white inner ring on the steering wheel, white stitching in the floor mats and dark oak trim with individual Mr Porter engraving.

Since October 2014, BMW i and Soho House Group (SHG) have been co-creating experiences focusing on contemporary art, innovation and design. As Soho House Group’s global automotive partner, BMW i will provide BMW i3 vehicles for driving experiences for members and guests at many of its sites and cultural events. Soho House and BMW i will also collaborate on an international arts programme throughout Soho House locations in Europe and the US.

London is the home of Soho House and boasts the highest concentration of Soho House venues. Just round the corner from the Soho House in Greek Street is the Dean Street Townhouse, a 39-bedroom hotel, with Shoreditch House slightly further east.

Go west for Little House, Mayfair’s best kept restaurant, bar and lounge, as well as Electric House in Notting Hill and High Road House, a quiet outpost in Chiswick. All venues offer outstanding food, drink and spaces to relax in luxurious surroundings

Country-lovers are also catered for, with Babington House, set in 18 acres of rural Somerset. It’s home to 32 individually designed bedrooms, a 24-hour restaurant and the flagship Cowshed Spa.

The first location in continental Europe was Berlin, where, in the vibrant Mitte district, Soho House Berlin opened its doors in May 2010. Occupying eight floors, the House has an expansive club floor, rooftop pool and bar, fully equipped gym, screening room and Cowshed Spa with Hammam.

The European tour is continuing in southern climes, too: Soho Houses will be opening in Istanbul (February 2015) and Barcelona (early 2016).

The year 2003 saw the beginning of the North American presence − in a period warehouse building in the Meatpacking District. Soho House New York covers six floors, offering 30 spacious bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, 44-seat cinema and rooftop pool as well as a Cowshed Spa.

The next address was Sunset Boulevard, where Soho House West Hollywood opened in an iconic office building in spring 2010. This was followed a few months later by Soho Beach House in Miami, which offers South American glamour, two pools and its own beach club.

2012 saw the opening of Soho House Toronto, which launched with an array of events to celebrate the Toronto International Film Festival.

In August 2014 – true to the motto “Save the biggest till last” – Soho House Group opened its largest property to date: Soho House Chicago, in a 10,000 square metre former belt factory.
