The Cyclist is a series of bags developed by young french-dutch product designer Julie Thissen. The collection has been developed specially for urban cyclists and perfectly combine practicality, elegance, and safety.
On the lower front parts of all three leather versions, ribbons of retro-reflective material are woven into the surface. Afterwards, textile lining and metal buckles accent the construction, which is reinforced with a tarpaulin bottom panel. This pattern gives them a unique appearance, but it also has a functional advantage: the components illuminate at night under the front lights of passing cars, making the user more visible to surrounding traffic.
