Rapha + Liberty release women's spring collection

The inaugural collection of Rapha + Liberty sold out within days so there won't be any time to sleep on the latest instalment in the collaboration.

The spring-summer Rapha + Liberty range features the women's souplesse collection re-imagined in a seventies geometric pattern in cool summer shades of blues and whites.

"We chose it for its bold style and movement," said a spokesman. 

They had their work cut out selecting it - the Liberty archive holds 40,000 prints. 

The souplesse collection is a performance line created for higher tempo training and racing and consists a jersey, base layer, bib shorts, silk scarf, and cap.

To top the collection off, master framebuilder Tom Donhou has created a special edition bike in complementary colours.

The collection goes live at midday tomorrow (April 8) at http://pages.rapha.cc/liberty
