KnickersDenoting the culture of cycling in fashionable clothes, the term “cycle chic” hails from urbane European hotspots like Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern and Copenhagen, where many everyday citizens commute and run errands on bikes but still want to look sophisticated. U.K. company Cycle Chic (www.cyclechic.co.uk) has jumped on the trend and is now designing a line of cycling clothes that would make your nanny proud, including riding capes. It may look all stiff-upper lip on first glance, but there’s a touch of naughty Victorian fantasy here, as well as true eco-friendly performance fabrics (get a load of the bamboo knickers).
