Bike Month kicks off today in New York City, and we couldn’t be more pumped to whip out our favorite two-wheeled accessory. Yeah, you thought we weren’t bad like that, but we are. And so is Agyness Deyn. The UK papers are chock full of shots of her on her beater bike. And, you’ll recall Donna Karan’s campaign to encourage environmentally friendly transportation. But if that’s not fashiony enough for you, hop on these designer bikes (you knew it was only a matter of time) by G-Star, Chanel, and Puma.
• For the urban rider: Bicycle-maker Cannondale collaborated with denim king G-Star to launch the Special Edition Raw, an 8-speed bike with tires that look like faux wood and a brown leather seat.
• For the luxury cruiser chick: Chanel released a limited-edition quilted bike for their Sport Collection last fall. It comes with a signature-quilted bike bag on the rear and a mega-comfy seat for easy riding. At $12,000 it’s pricey, but it’s Chanel, people.
• For Sporty Spice wannabes: Think your apartment can’t fit a bike? Puma’s limited edition bike collapses for easy storage. Plus, it glows in the dark and you can get matching clothes and handbags! Love. —Sharon Clott
