Animal-friendly British fashion designer Stella McCartney has just revealed a collaboration with Cannondale on 18 hand-painted bikes. McCartney’s designs include contributions from Ed Cutis, Myfawnwy (Maisie Broome), and Tom Tosseyn, emerging artists who also collaborated on the Stella McCartney A/W ’21 collection.
“As a lifelong cyclist and someone who rides their bicycle every day to work, I could not be more excited for my new shared journey with Cannondale. The bikes we have created embody our common values and vision – blending beauty and desirability with a sense of responsibility to the next generation,” said McCartney.
For now, the limited-edition SystemSix, SuperSix EVO, and EVO CX Cannondale bikes will not be available for purchase. Instead, they’ll be on display at Stella McCartney flagship stores in London, New York, Shanghai, and Tokyo.
While they’re just decorative items for now, it might make sense for Stella McCartney to get into creating bikes on a larger scale. The brand has been bringing sustainable style to fitness and athleisure wear for years through a long-time collaboration with Adidas.
