Copenhagen Cycle Chic Goes Global Again
A few times a year there are posh Style Lounges held in the States in conjunction with major events. In this case it was the "Kari Feinstein Emmy Style Lounge" that the Beautiful People attended in the run-up to the Emmy Awards. Velorbis had their classic Victoria and Churchill present and were pleased to have been invited. The Dutch Bicycle Company attended, as the American distributor for the Danish brand. Danish Design always seems to travel well and mix with the right crowd.
We are well chuffed about being invited to take part in this year's EuroBike industry fair in Germany, as a part of Velorbis' stand, pictured above. Thanks to Velorbis for letting me design the back wall - on the right. 4 x 2.5 metres of pure Cycle Chic, printed on gorgeous fabric. It should have made the trip over the Atlantic to hang at the above Style Lounge, but logistics were against us.
"People are Handsome, We make their Bicycles." That is the slogan of "Handsome Cycles" in Minneapolis, USA. Splendid slogan. Splendid photo.
And the Dutch, bless their cotton socks, are at it again. Trying desparately to play catch up in the Cycle Chic Sweepstakes. Like other thieves and beggars whom we love madly. I think this might be a inflight magazine, but I'm not sure.
Then there is this article from the Canadian National Post, rounding up the whole Cycle Chic movement. Nice to see that normal people in normal clothes is slowly, surely becoming the norm.
