The idea was born during a Carhartt skate trip back in 2013 when the pair came together through one of the rider's connections to Pelago following the discovery of an abandoned bike frame which was then re-purposed as a special one off. From that event we now have a fully considered collection centred around the carefully crafted single-speed Porteur bike in a subtle toolbox green colour way. The bike is complimented with a range of co-branded apparel which includes a tee, work jacket, cap and beanie, all featuring double-reflective labelling and waterproof coatings. Rounding off the release is another collab within the collab, teaming up with Mission Workshop one a bespoke bag design that can be worn in a messenger stye and attached to the bikes front rack during travel.
Again it seems as though Carhartt WIP have got it right with their collaborative venture, putting together a collection that offers something to seasoned bike riders down to their leisurely cyclers, and all those in between.
The Carhartt WIP x Pelago Bicycles collaborative collection is set to arrive on August 11th. Head over to www.carhartt-wip.com for more.
