if they mean to refer to ghost bikes it seems tacky to say the least.

If you see a DKNY-branded bicycle that you would like to see unlocked, please email the bike’s location to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We will forward bike locations to the appropriate authorities.

this is a nice thing.  go to dkny.com they seem to care about bike safter for the city.

Sam,

Orange is def the spring color—you can see it in catalogs with an increasing amount of bike imagery (there’s a new XC90 commercial featuring “danskin Mom”). And you may remember the “fishing lure” orange from back-in-the day—Specialized had a carbon-tube, aluminum lugged back that was as orange as it gets, and the ugliest bike they ever made!

Bill & Chris,

Whether intentional or not, there’s a ghost bike influence, but that’s probably because the bike in the photo is locked; they’re not supposed to be, as LBV notes. The lock also rubs off the neon orange.

Jillian,

There are two at 9th Avenue and 14th Street. Thankfully they have been vandalized!

Wow it really looks like crap.

If you are going to encourage cyclists, please encourage them to follow traffic rules on the streets of Manhattan!

Hey Judith - we’re with you.  While road laws aren’t designed with the cyclist in mind, we should still be playing by the rules:

A fashion backlash? A hatred of orange or that it’s DKNY? Or that it’s too similar to Ghost Bike?
