Off on a bike



Bicycle Chic is a street phenomenon widely captured by the likes of The Sartorialist, Tommy Ton and Jak and Jil blog. The trend towards this eco-friendly commute has caught on for months now. We are fascinated by it for sure. Sharing pictures today of this street style.

At the same time we wonder if India is ready for bicycle chic or not. We did try to dig up some Indian Street Style Pictures of fashionable bike riding too. Found none. The scenario looks different back home. The last two pictures of this post, courtesy wearabout, says it all. It could be the mindset, it could be the heat, it could be the sheer distances or the roads being biker unfriendly. 

Whatever it is, we hope to see a a girl in her 20s riding her bike in her fluid dress and Ray Bans and her sling bag in the basket - on the streets of India. Let's hope the picture comes out soon :)

  7. Wow, the difference between the want and need of a bicycle is so clearly illustrated here! For many, it's not a fashion accessory, but a tool of survival.
