NYC cycling gets chic
This upcoming NY Fashion Week (September 8-15) designers are going green without compromising style. In honor of the Fashion Center Business Improvement District's new bicycle campaign, top designers such as Diane Von Furstenburg, Cynthia Rowley and Isaac Mizrahi will be giving out custom designed rental bicycles to travel between shows. A collaboration with Bowery Lane Bicycles, the bikes are handmade by vintage-inspired specialists. These sort of designer wheels usually come with price tags as high as $17,000, so you better jump on this chance to pedal through Manhattan on a rental Gucci or Fendi bike (even if it's just for one afternoon).
