Cycling – So French, So Chic

Is it just me or are old school bicycles popping up everywhere? In the last 2 weeks I’ve discovered shop windows, magazine articles and blog sites all featuring this eco friendly mode of transport.

I think the attention is well deserved. I’ve always been a lover of bike riding; the romanticism of riding a bike through a park or along the beach is enough to inspire even a couch potato to exercise.

Thanks to this love for the humble bicycle a number of high end fashion houses are making riding even more über cool.

French fashion house “Celine” is about to launch a range of bicycle friendly outfits. The range will be “classy and practical” including tank dresses, shorts and leggings. No more fabric stuck in the oily chains!

A basket for all your treasures - Top 3 by Deign store is stocking the Carrie basket from Stockholm company Design House. The basket has gorgeous detail and a there’s a huge bonus - it doubles as a shopping basket!

The ultimate in bicycling – the Chanel bike £6,200. The Bentley of bicycles.

Even the Sartorialist has dedicated a whole photo series of people looking chic on bikes. His beautiful images can be found at http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com/search/label/Bicycles
