The Cape has long since been a favourite garment of mine. The shape lends itself to cycling as it doesn't restrict your back and shoulder and falls loosely on the body, so you stay well ventilated. Capes also have a classic grace and elegance that looks fabulous both on and off the bike.
After receiving a consistent flow of compliments on my welsh woolen cape I set my sights on designing one for Cyclechic.co.uk. I teamed up with the cycle-fashion design experts Amy Fleuriot and Sarah Buck of Cyclodelic to create this Limited Edition range.
The cape first became a fashion item for women in the 1930's. To 'tip our hats' to this and to celebrate the individuality of each piece we have named each cape with traditional ladies names from the period (which will be printed on the label)
