Shanghai Tang Limited Edition Fixed-Gear Bike

On July 2, 2012 by waikit

Richemont-owned luxury brand Shanghai Tang has been busy at work over the past year teaming up with designers, artists and international brands, creating limited edition items for Moleskine and Nespresso, collaborating with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, and holding an exhibition of the Chinese contemporary artist Huang Rui. For its latest exclusive partnership, Shanghai Tang menswear designer Armele Barbier partnered with Colossi Cycling’s Jan Kole on a special fixed-gear bicycle. With a thoroughly modern and lightweight design that echoes yet updates the iconic Flying Pigeon-style Chinese black cycle so ubiquitous in cities like Beijing from the 1950s-1990s, Shanghai Tang’s fixie is available in two of the brand’s trademark colorways, fuchsia and orange. But, as always, style doesn’t come cheap: prices range from HK$9,800 (US$1,263) for fuchsia to HK$10,800 (US$1,392) for orange. The Shanghai Tang fixie is available exclusively at the new Shanghai Tang Mansion on Duddell Street in Hong Kong. For additional information, contact customerservice@shanghaitang.com.

      “Hundreds of women’s fashion businesses, born in the mid-1990s in Hangzhou, China, based their success on mediocre, embellished copies of global best sellers, cheap commercial distribution, and high margins. But in today’s highly competitive China market, where brand matters more than ever, Hangzhou labels face a serious identity crisis”.…
