|Blu Dot x Handsome Cycles|
It feels as if ages have past since there was any movement in the realm of fashion and cycling collaborations, but it's not so. Google Alerts and I have merely been slacking. Have you ever gotten a text from someone and you thought you replied to it, but you actually only answered it in your head. That's kind of what I've been doing — I could've sworn I pinned something about designer bikes to my Cycle Chic board when I didn't. Well, it's time to catch up. Fashion is fickle. (But James Perse is not; I took note of his beach cruiser back in 2009). Blu Dot represents high end/design furniture’s first foray into bicycle collaborations. Solé Bicycles and Wildfox represent high end loungewear (I guess that's an apt description). Carhartt WIP is the high end street collection with workwear DNA, Pelago provides the quality ride, and Mission Workshop makes the hard-wearing yet classy bag.
