If you’re interested in cycling and fashion there’s a good chance you’re already aware that British menswear designer Paul Smith is a cycling enthusiast and collector. Smith dives into his archive of jersey’s, photographs, bikes, and all sorts of memorabilia for his new book “Paul Smith’s Cycling Scrapbook” published by Thames & Hudson which will be available mid next month. Thanks for the heads up Tracko! I’m definitely going to be picking up a copy for myself.

Rapha is offering a series of Tour of California caps available only at the race stages themselves again after working last year with Delaware-based type foundry House Industries. This collaboration was part of a series of cycling-related projects to promote the release of their then-upcoming font family Velo Serif. Continuing again in 2015 Rapha reached out to Colophon to design their ten-stage set of caps, each with their own fun colorways and patterns. Read more from the designers here.
Some time ago I had the opportunity to flip through Paul Sahre‘s flat files in his Chelsea studio. It was a pretty interesting collection ranging from work by friends, his own work, and a bit of everything else in between. Sahre’s blog From the Flat Files gives everyone a chance to take a look at what he’s got stashed away, highly recommended.
