Just for the record, I do wear my helmet when I ride a bike
If I lived on the quite streets of Park Slope, Brooklyn I might not but the traffic in the city is just too crazy.
Instead of trying to copy the very chic Europeans bikers I think we (Americans) should do what we are good at - and that is Sporty/Tech.
I would love to see a sleek young lady in a little black jersey dressed tied-up on one leg, on an equally sleek black mountain bike wearing some kinda of silver reflective sash or form fitted vest (but really well-designed) and reflective wristbands, Raybans, and some sleek, form-fit mountain climbing shoes (those really tiny ones with the nubby soles) or even heels (like that lady I shot in Paris) and a cool racing helmet.
Imagine mixing Polo Sport with Comme Des Garçons - now that would look cool with really techy bike gear.
We should have a contest on who can submit the best photo of their Chic/Tech bike look.
Maybe we can find a cool sponsor to throw in a prize.
This kinda of small reflective vest could be really chic if designed correctly - for womens maybe add more mesh on the sides so it is not so hot in the summer and a racer back
just an idea
