Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook!

PaulSmithCyclingScrapBook

Designer Paul Smith’s love of cycling is no secret. His earliest dream was to become a professional cyclist, but an injury at the age of 17 curtailed his aspiration. Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook brings together the memorabilia and projects Paul has collected and worked on throughout his life.

The 256-page oversized book, published by Thames and Hudson, has been designed by Aboud + Aboud and contains over 500 illustrations. This book is not only a love letter from Paul to the sport, but a document that shows the evolving technologies, fashions, aesthetics and branding in cycling. Throughout the book there are intense oil portraits of cycling heroes such as Eddy Merckx, Jaques Anquetil and Tom Simpson by Nottingham-based artist Karl Kopinski.

Anna Meares for Santini!

AnnaMearesSMSCollection

For the start of the 2016 Fixed Crit season we met up with two of the top riders on the circuit Americans Ash Duban and Sammi Runnels to try out some pieces from the Anna Meares x Santini collection. The Anna Meares Signature series is a collection designed in conjunction with the 11 time UCI Track World Champion from Team Australia and is available as part of our 2016 collection.

The 2014 Red Hook Crit Milano Champion Ash Duban said: “Anna Meares is a legend, I once met her in person at the velodrome in Sydney and it’s an honor to be part of this project. Her clothing is amazing.” Sammi Runnels, who races in the UCI cyclo-cross circuit as well in fixed criteriums had an impressive season in 2015 and is one of the favorites for the 2016 Red Hook Crit Series.
