I am as passionate about designing as I am about cycling, and I love that Velocio has given me this opportunity to bring the two together! As with our last collaboration, I created the Poppy Kit for Velocio to bring a little more glamour to the bike. This is one of my favorite floral prints because it is bold and colorful.
I spend a lot of time on my bike, so I can appreciate and address what is needed for a proper cycling kit – while infusing a touch of feminine color and style.
