BUTTONED UP: Talk about a hard-working suit. Contemporary French men’s wear brand Melinda Gloss has created a non-iron, rainproof outfit designed for cycling to the office in style.
The tailored jacket in Holland & Sherry technical wool has traditional notch lapels, but also a collar lined with reflective material and sleeves with wind-breaking cuffs. Pants also boast reflective lining and can be pulled up easy so they don’t get caught in the gears.
Paris specialty store Colette commissioned the designs to mark the 100th anniversary of the Tour de France this summer. They go on display in its windows from June 10-16 along with a bicycle by bespoke firm Héritage Paris.
