The summer season kicks of with an entertaining and borderline nerdy discussion of the past, present and future of the cycling jersey. From Bianchi’s 1950s classic celeste blue to Mapei pushed the dye sublimation process to its limits and divided fans in equal measure. We take the story as far as today’s trend for any colour as long as its black, and look to the sci-fi future of interactive jersey materials.
In the studio are three cyclists and jersey aficionados: Luke Scheybeler, designer and a founder of clothing company Rapha, Richard Mitchelson, illustrator, animator and Milltag designer (pictured above) and cycling photographer Camille McMillan, co-author of Le Métier.
Richard Mitchelson is also the designer of the excellent new Bike Show banner and iTunes logo. Hope you like it. We do!
