CLOTH­ING... POLES APART

Those of you who’ll be join­ing us at this year’s Spin Cy­cling Fes­ti­val (12-14 May, Olympia, Lon­don) will come across the rather colourful and stylish world of War­saw Cy­cling. The brain­child of for­mer bike mes­sen­ger Sven and de­signer Char­lotte, War­saw’s range of cy­cling gear leans heav­ily on the aes­thetic. “Our de­signs em­brace an al­ter­na­tive ap­proach to cy­cling cul­ture and sports, in­spired by bike-mes­sen­ger life, track-bike cri­teri­ums, run­way fash­ion and un­der­ground cul­ture,” Sven says. And there’s cer­tainly some­thing of the friv­o­lous de­signer about the gar­ments with the vivid navy long-sleeve jersey and short-sleeved orange top en­sur­ing you’ll stand out amongst the madding crowd. War­saw Cy­cling’s range is heav­ily aimed at road­ies or fixed-gear rac­ers, though caps and t-shirts lend a nod to the leisure cy­clist.
