Strolling Madison Avenue on a recent Saturday morning, I could not help but notice that more than one high end window was adorned with luscious two-wheeled jewelry intended to set the mood this season’s clothing collections. Two brands, Belstaff and Ralph Lauren, featured new or vintage motorcycles draped in high end product. Belstaff, an edgy British clothier that charges the better part of a grand for their leather jackets, featured a menacing monstrosity of a bespoke bobber complete with Brembo stoppers, V-twin power and one seriously raunchy exhaust. The gold colored drive chain completed the elemental design effect. Ralph Lauren, on the other hand, took an iconic style direction with an astoundingly beautiful vintage BMW (courtesy of Cooper Classics) draped in couture hand bags.
All in all, I love the trend.
