The world of cycling fashion has a new face on the block, and it’s certainly one to be excited about. Long anticipated and much spoken about amongst the cycling scene, Vulpine Bike Apparel has launched – and its founder Nick Hussey has brought something rather special to the market. A true labour of love, Hussey states that Vulpine was “borne out of love and frustration”; his love for cycling which goes back to his childhood days and his frustration of cycling clothing being “stuck in a Lycra-warp for 30 years”.

Embracing bold graphic prints with a sometimes wickedly dark slice of humour (the Schneewichen tights will give you […]
Selfridges currently have a new store-wide initiative – the Words Words Words season, which is in “celebration of the beauty of words and the joy of writing”. Being a blogger, my interest in this was already piqued – but when I found out Tatty Devine would be in residence with a pop-up shop (and making customised name necklaces on the spot) I simply had to pay a visit.
