blog travels | contemporary vintage bikes

been obsessed with antique bikes since the onyx feather paris line photoshoot. the main concept behind the onyx feather line is mixing unique, vintage pieces with sleek modern pieces. the result: every necklace is an unusual piece of art that unifies the past and the present.

it's cool to see this concept reflected in other mediums and businesses like bertelli, an endearing new york-based bicilette assemblate. to create customized bicycles the owner combines new bike parts with vintage parts he finds at bike shops, flea markets and suppliers. the bikes are wicked. in the words of a friend: the images of them made him chirp like a school girl.

off to nyc for a long weekend. hope to return with unconventional ideas, new pictures, and a trunk full of more inspiring vintage pieces in time for the launch!
