bike-style-acne-bianchi
It might be the dead of winter, but we never tire of seeing a well-dressed New Yorker whizzing down the street on her Flying Pigeon Bicycle in sub-freezing temps—devout bikers are not only transport-savvy, they can be equally nimble in the fashion department. Lately, there's no shortage of incredible bike-related inspiration. Acne is teaming up wtih Italy's illustrious Bianchi bike-makers to fashion a made-to-order Pista bike, out in March. And since spotting possibly the coolest bike-style story ever photographed by Gemma Booth (thanks Style Bubble), we decided it was time to assemble a photo album of our favorite pedal-pushing looks. Sporty, layered, or infinitely femme—take a cue from these top riders' free-wheeling style tips.
