The Cycling Fashionista
Riding bikes is no longer for just the lycra body suited athletes. Back in the cool is the bike mum and dad bought you for your 16th Birthday that you swore never to ride again! Fashionistas across the globe are donning their trendiest outfits and mounting their vintage bike seats to cycle about town. Not only is it good exercise, but also gives you serious street-cred with your bright Marc Jacobs tote tucked in the front basket and super cool dark sunnies.
Celebrities and models alike are putting on their best flats, and cycling around the neighbourhoods of the fashion capitals including Paris, New York and London. Agyness Deyn made headlines when she rode her vintage bike to the Paris Fashion Week, and it seems her glamorous counterparts have followed suit! Even in Sydney’s own Surry Hills district Tokyo Bike has recently opened, where the indie inner-city fashionistas in their vintage garb, frequently ride through the streets.
