Formal cycling suit
How to make a seamless transition between the bike and an office environment? The suit allows the biker to use a pencil skirt while in transit. It involved extensive research into sportswear to create a wearable transition for this high-performance-to-desk activity. Both pieces are engineered hybridizing elements of sportswear within a more traditional tailoring language.
The white prototype was made in a combination of two technical fabrics that were both waterproof and breathable; the suit is lined in a moisture-wicking jersey that makes the interior more gentle to the skin.
