Shorter days bring cooler weather and Café Du Cycliste’s new autumn/winter 2016 collection is built to ride through whatever conditions are found out on the roads. While always staying true to their modern French style, AW16 adds another step in performance innovation with the further use of brand new fabrics, ideas, designs and detailing.
The new cycling range continues to expand season by season with new items added for both men and women as well as the re-imagining of some signature pieces. The palette is inspired by the season in large part with frequent bursts of colour to break up the classic blue, green and grey hues.
The collection was shot across Europe, from Scotland in the north to the French and Italian Alps further south. The backdrops are varied, the weather equally so but each piece of apparel on show is linked by the common threads of technical excellence and unique Café du Cycliste style. The collection also includes a full range of accessories from gloves, neck warmers and shoe covers to base layers, musettes and caps.
Rainwear: a top to toe selection in three interchangeable colourways. Including the Josette jersey, the Charlotte jacket, the Jeanne bib shorts and the Loulou arm and legwarmers. Everything you need for wet weather riding.
Jacqueline Audax: the first piece in their new Audax long distance collection. A mid-weight packable gilet which fits into a jersey pocket but provides heavy weight protection if conditions turn. Styled with a very modern take on ‘Fluro Yellow’, it is available for both men and women.
Long Sleeve Merino: the workhorse of autumn/winter 2016, combining the warmth needed on colder days with superb performance across a wide range of conditions. Their signature Yolande and Claudette jerseys are back with new colours and new detailing.
All Weather Jackets: whether there’s heavy rain, blowing wind or numbing chill their selection of jackets have it covered. From cold weather Heidi to wet weather Charlotte or worst weather Regine, they’re designed to handle any type of conditions.
