They have done it again folks…. Always on point, Rapha (our favorite cycling apparel company) has teamed up with Sir Paul Smith to create a series of t-shirts and tote bags to commemorate this October’s Japan Cup, Japan’s annual race featuring top Pro Tour riders. The overall aesthetic, inspired by vintage cycling jerseys, boast’s the “531” logo used on all the Paul Smith and Rapha collections. 531 represents the brand of bicycle tubing produced by Reynolds of Birmingham, a symbol of Sir Paul’s affinity for cycling. The Paul Smith shop in Shibuya, Tokyo is hosting the exclusive exhibition, complete with prints from Rouleur – the British cycling magazine published by Rapha – and a selection of Rapha products. The show runs from this Friday until Sunday 25th October, so get in gear and don’t miss out on this epic collaboration.
