Way before the Shard made its pointy way into the London skyline, Centre Point was one of the first skyscrapers in the capital. The 117-metre-tall building has been towering over Tottenham Court Road since the 1960s, so it’s about time it got a new look.

Today, the Grade II-listed building is getting wrapped in a massive print by fashion designer Eley Kishimoto. The new geometric pattern is inspired by its ’60s roots and will be staying put for the next six months.

To celebrate, Centre Point has teamed up with BMW Minis and Crosstown Doughnuts to give away 100 free boxes of doughnuts. To get your hands on one, keep your eyes peeled for a fleet of Minis in Centre Point-inspired print, which will be whizzing round London from today until Sunday. If you see one, snap a pic and tweet or Instagram it to @centrepointLDN using the #centrepoint hashtag and you’ll be able to pick your box up, or have it delivered by a Mini if you’re within a mile of Centre Point and want to feel really baller.

Take a look at some more pretty pics:
