It would be slightly innacurate to say the sun always shines on the Cote d’Azur but it wouldn’t be too much of an exageration. That’s why we welcome the arrival of the Cafe du Cycliste lookbook - it offers a glimpse into the cycling that we all hope we will get a chance to do at some time in the not-too-distant future.
You can’t fail to have your spirits lifted by this brand - it’s as if they sprinkle a bit of sunshine over everything they do.
Nice-based Cafe du Cycliste has vastly expanded its range over the past couple of years to cater for both men and women but the overall aesthetic remains the same - cycle kit that is as laid back as you can get while keeping its performance credibility featuring unique little details that are sure to put a smile on your face.
Don’t be fooled by the quirky nature though - this is serious cyclewear that is designed to be worn time after time and still look as sharp as a Parisian flaneur.
Oh and if you’re wondering why the sun isn’t shining an awful lot in these pictures it’s because the shoot took place in that overcast hellhole that is Lanzarote. Life can be a bitch.
We’ll be reviewing some of this in due course but in the meantime we’ll leave you to gaze wistfully at the lovely pictures.
