Fendi Bike and more Velocouture

The fashion blogs lit up like blinky lights this Spring when Fendi featured the Abici Amante Donna bike in their Craft Punk event and later at a in-store cocktail party.

Like I was saying during my Bike Culture preso @gnomedex, that’s a whole other thing: velocouture. The Fendi bike was featured in Vogue, Womens Wear Daily and again this week when they released more photos.

Bikes as accessories to a fashionista lifestyle? Sure, why not? We recently posted on a carbon, belt-drive single speed, the unbranded and confusing NADA Bike, and Core77’s designer bike debuted at Apple Stores in New York. Also see Urban Outfitter’s bike, Cigno, and cycling gear at TopShop.

We’ve said it before and hope to see a bike-related Project Runway challenge – take a $100.00 and make a fashionable bike from a thrift store.
