Rapha + Paul Smith

July 26, 2010

Exclusive! Almost as covetable and significantly more stylish than the maillot jaune, Paul Smith’s collaboration with Rapha is revealed here, no sooner than the peloton kicks down its collective stand for another year. Having interviewed British Olympic cyclist Mark Cavendish for the current issue of GQ Style and previously collaborated with Rapha on a Grand Départ Jersey in 2007 to celebrate the London start of the Tour, Sir Paul knows a thing or two about all things two-wheeled, as does “performance roadwear” maker Rapha. The first drop of the co-branded capsule collection features typically “Smithy” touches (his word, not ours) such as polka-dot pattern and hi-viz purple, and includes a rain jacket, merino jersey, silk scarf, leather “town gloves” and the equally brilliantly named “gentleman’s cap”. Getting on your bike hasn’t been this wonderfully dandified since the Tweed Cycling Club.
