Thursday, April 26, 2012

There’s no better way to navigate the streets of New York than on two-wheels. In lieu of that, the 2012 New Amsterdam Bicycle Show kicks off this weekend (Saturday April, 28). Kicking off the festivities this year is the exciting “Postcards From New Amsterdam: A Bicycle Fashion Show” featuring some very hot items that will appear on the runway at Skylight Soho.

Last year the handsome Matthew Modine graced our runway and he’s back again this year, ready to model the very latest in Velo couture. Strutting alongside him will be former Critical Shopper Mike Albo, showing off glamorous bicycles, bags, jeans and coats perfect for the New Yorker who wants to ride in style. Perennial fashion-plate Hamish Bowles┬áhas even donated a custom made vest and knickers set designed by B Spoke Tailor
