An up-and-coming fashion designer from Indonesia has been commissioned to reinterpret the 7-Series.
BMW Individual has revealed an exclusive 7-Series designed by Indonesian fashion designer Didit Hediprasetyo. The special edition car, limited to just five units, has been on the market since May. It is regarded as BMW's first ever collaboration with an Asian designer, who was inspired by "the image of a lavender sky at sunrise in a serene desert landscape." As such the Individual 7-Series by Didit Hediprasetyo boasts bright pastel tones on the exterior and interior of the car.
The official names of the body is Frozen Diamond Metallic and the full leather interior is better known as Merino Silk Grey, which gets contrasting leather piping that goes by the name of Merino Platinum. Silky Grey Alcantara or full Nappa leather adorns the roof headliner, A-, B-, and C-pillars, sun visors and rear shelf, while contrast Piano Black lacquer features on various trim pieces. Black ostrich leather has been used for the floor mats. Exclusive details on the car include logo embossed headrests, platinum-toned ostrich leather pillows, and a BMW Individual refrigerator box.
The cold compartment features in the rear center armrest complete with champagne glass holders, and there's also a silk grey leather folding table, seat-back monitors, a vanity compartment built into the roof liner and a dog basket finished in grey leather/Alcantara. Despite all these unique appointments on the one-off 7-Series, prospective clients are able to add their own preferences with each car designed according to their specific requirements.
