Poetry in Motion: The European City Bike

Undeniably chic, the vintage-style city bike is having its moment. Made iconic on the streets of Europe, the last decade has seen the popularity of the upright commuter bike reach new heights within global fashion and design circles. Rooted in nostalgia, escapism and the desire for a slower pace of life, these candy-coloured retro-styled bikes are far from a passing fad as the trend crosses the Atlantic to the US.

From locally handmade small-batch brands, which blur the boundaries between craft and industry, to mass-manufactured utility bikes with a pared-back aesthetic, Stylus explores the allure of the European city bike.
