This gorgeous photo (thanks Bliss) sends me back in time to the early 80’s. I had a blue bike with a white seat and white rims on my tyres too. This is the style of bicycle I want to get myself. Old school with a basket on the front and painted in a pastel gelato-colour that looks good enough to eat.
Bikes are fast becoming the chicest mode of transport, if only we could look as fabulous as Aggy while we skoot around town. Every where I look these days I see papparazzi photos of some Hollywood star on their bicycle. Brad Pitt, Elle McPherson, Chloe Sevigny, Owen Wilson, Kate Hudson et al…
This picture of Audrey Hepburn on her bicycle with her little dog in the basket is so cute. Maybe I should wear a scarf too? I mean I should make sure I look
the part, shouldn’t?
Just because I’m riding a bike doesn’t mean I can’t look stylish, right?
I mean honestly, who wouldn’t look stylish on this red number?
Designer bicycle are becoming de rigueur with the likes of Hermes, Chanel and Gucci producing haute couture cycles. And they have to be seen to be believed – especially the price tag!
As nice as it would be to have such a gorgeous bike to ride around on, I would be so concerned that my beauty would get stolen that I probably wouldn’t want to leave it unattended anywhere. If I bought a Chanel cycle, would it come with free body-guard?
I adore the wheel spokes on this bike, reminds me of Penny Farthing. The leather seat and the shape of the handle bars is also old school. Beats those modern bikes any day I think!
Even the Sartorialist is posting pictures of people on bikes, which is definitely saying something. It has to be a stylish past-time for certain now, wouldn’t you agree?
Well my mind is made up. I surely have to get a new bicycle now. I’m off to find the best Gucci knock-off I can find!
I know what I’d rather be doing.
