As much as they would like to tell you otherwise, these are obviously not meant for city living. For starters, where would you find somewhere safe enough to park them? In my opinion unless you live in a sprawling country estate there is really no reason to get one.
The latest addition to the world of designer bicycles is the two-wheeler offered by Fendi, the Fendi Abici Amante Donna, which comes in 2 different editions. The first edition (shown above) comes with everything pictured and costs USD9500. Take away the fur saddlebags at the back and it will only cost USD5900.
In August last year Hermès teamed up with Dutch bicycle manufacturer Batavus and ‘revamped’ one of their models (the Old Dutch) with leather accents on the seat and handles. Without the ‘revamp’ it would originally cost USD799, but after the Hermès ‘touch’ it became USD3500.
And even before that, Chanel had her own bicycle as well as part of the Spring-Summer 2008 Womens Chanel collection. Coming with its very own pair of Classic Flap saddlebags, it cost a whopping USD12,695.
