Noticed Cycle Mode Tokyo in @gary_fisher’s Twitter stream and much vélocouture was in the booths.

We’ve been posting and predicting that fashion would follow cyclists into the mainstream. As more of us ride urban, we need clothes and gear that work better on and off the bike. What you ride in should work at the office, home, and elsewhere.

Granted, Japan stylists will take it into steampunky fetish places, but the influence is still there.

Earlier this year, I posted on Performance Couture and TWO n FRO.

With the popularity of Momentum’s fashion show, the gear we’re making, I expect future handbuilt bike shows to focus less on filet brazing old stuff and more on new gear made with technical materials.
