Painfully Hip Design Collective – Vintage Bike Fashion

Our friends Omer Kreso and Chrissy Piper (celebrity photographer extraordinaire – she’s shot two icons of female rock – Karen O and Cat Power) had the idea to do a bicycle-themed shoot. I got together my closest fashion partners in crime – my roommates Jamaica Cole of Sapphire Cordial and Diana Deaver of Seven Bells (and and the ladies of Preen Vintage in Tucson, Erin Bradley and Emilie Marchand to show off our bike-friendly style in our own ways… with a our interpretation of “road warrior chic.”

After that, we were recruited by Tucson Bike Beautiful to promote their upcoming bike fashion procession with another shoot of more ladylike leanings, where we attempted to match our outfits to the era of bike we were riding. These shots were taken by Adam Kizanis and are featured in local glossy, Zocalo Magazine for the month of April. Thanks all!
