Inspired by high fashion, architecture and the colors of the winter season, our ES Jersey Stained Glass offering aims to break through constrained or expected styles for cycling. At its core, the Stained Glass Jersey is a visual representation of what goes into every piece we make--a nod to the various lenses from which we create clothing and a chance to tell a story the way stained glass, itself does: boldly, full of movement, color and light.
The Stained Glass collection found itself best suited to our ES Jersey: with fewer seams, there is a smooth and expansive canvas to display the unique pattern and colors. This fit is our most articulated of our jerseys boasting top aerodynamic properties with a focus on performance. Following the silhouette common in pro cycling, the ES Jersey sports slightly longer (short) sleeves made with our ultralight perforated stretch fabric, an artfully constructed piece aimed at high output riding without feeling overbuilt.
The bike for me is often a solitary venture. It’s not necessarily by choice, but more often than not I prefer it that way. I find it an opportunity to reflect, to solve problems and find resolve on the day in a way that’s unique to riding. This feels more immediate than ever as we launch our spring collection into these strange days of March, 2020.
Riding has become part of my creative process - both from a development perspective, such as what fabric to use here, or how to reshape a seam there, but also in what draws inspiration in terms of color and design.
Most of our collection is decidedly minimalist in aesthetic, yet we do have opportunities each season to push beyond clean and simple lines and incorporate more artful concepts. For S/S ’20 bold print and color have been incorporated throughout, drawing inspiration from far reaching areas to create striking design that still compliments our more core collection.
