Fendi’s city bike with handmade leather details
In an ultimate statement of true luxury, the Fatto a Manno (brush up on your Italian—it means “Made by Hand”) tradition at Fendi continues with the latest and greatest product on two wheels. The Abici Amante Donna city bike is finished with the Italian label’s exquisite Selleria leather details. So you already have a leather accessory bag? Fine, but is it also complemented with goatskin? Other leather details that have luxury-lovers eager to squeeze into their spandex riding shorts include a GPS navigator holder, key and bike chain cover, pump, thermos cover, and, the crux of any great bike ride, the seat. No Fendi product would be complete without Lagerfeld’s iconic inverted “Zucca” logo, so it is appropriately placed right up front, on the fully accessorized travel trunk. Not surprisingly, the bicycles were selling like hotcakes at the launch party hosted by Vogue at the Fifth Avenue Fendi boutique. Finally we can stop straining our brains over what to get for that someone special who has everything. The stellar bicycles are priced at $9,500.
