As cyclists, we all got hit pretty hard with quarantine in 2020. I started the new year relaunching WomensKit after maternity leave and was very excited to test ride the IRIS kit for a review.

Well, well, well – cycling as high fashion in Vogue of all places. I’ll take it! NORMALIZE CYCLING FOR ALL!
I’m super confused why you would choose to wear a Kalf Jersey and Assos shorts but want a handlebar basket and sneakers for flat pedals. But, hey, GO GLAMOUR for promoting the bike. Get everyone riding!
Quite arguably, they missed a few. If we’re talking high end = chic, then yes, they definitely missed a few. But the UK keeps to their own now so…
