Directional, aspirational and charged with 70s inspiration, the new collaboration between Urban Outfitters and Farah reworks most-liked signature pieces from Farah’s archives. The iconic “Ladbroke” trouser, is where it all started. This key piece lifts the details from the original 70s slacks such as the 45° angle pocket, the double belt loop and the poly twill in an authentic Farah check design. A classic silhouette makes a return in the “Maida Tricot” track top, which has been recreated in the same authentic fabric and cut with a fresh twist. Other comebacks include the “Westbourne” knitted polo which still keeps its original pointelle cable; the “Acton” cardigan which has been reimagined in new colours; and the “Holland” shirt - a re-issue of the 70s original only in stripes of brown and beige.

MAAP Transit Apparel is made for movement and constantly in flux. It's M.A.A.P goes from A to B, or wherever it takes you. It's technical for the ride and, with progressive colour blocked design and unisex fit, styled for the inside. Four-way stretch provides a full range of movement with no adjustments necessary, while reflective details provide extra visibility for city riding. Lightweight, waterproof, windproof and DWR fabrications provide the ultimate warmth to weight ratio when the weather turns, while the Roam Jacket’s new Cohaesive hood adjuster system keeps the rain at bay whilst preserving visibility with the press of a button, or two. By swapping vehicle transportation for cycling, we can collectively take a conscious step towards an environmentally sustainable future that is also friendly on budget. According to the non-profit Adventure Cycling Association, a moderate increase in cycling, even for short trips, could reduce between 6 and 14 million tons of CO2 from reaching the atmosphere and 2.6 to 6 billion litres of fuel annually. So, it’s no surprise to see more environmentally conscious cyclists making the choice to commute daily.
