Martone Cycling Co. Brings Rose Gold To The Table

Fashion bike brand Martone Cycling Co. has unveiled a special limited edition “rose gold” bicycle for 2017. The “Studio City” will be produced in 50 units only, and doubles both as a functioning, versatile city bike and as a coveted design item turned collector’s piece. Inspired by the signature gold “Grand” and silver “Regard” metallic bikes that launched the brand to fame four years ago, the rose gold is a chic, rose-hued accessory designed to amplify the rider’s personal style. Martone Cycling creator, Lorenzo Martone, commented, “I created this brand on the idea that people should not have to sacrifice style and beauty for functionality. A bike is an object you live with, and it should stimulate your senses and bring joy to the eye -- in addition to the more obvious health and environmental benefits.”

It features black detailing on the seat, grips, and rubber wheel treads that starkly contrast the rose gold paint, allowing it to glisten even more. Keeping true to MCC’s standards, this model boasts a dual-legged adjustable kickstand, a SRAM system that automatically shifts gears as the rider cycles, and of course, the signature red chain and lucite pedals. These limited edition bikes will for the first time also come with a special gift – a rose gold-plated necklace with a moving bike crank-inspired pendant, with the Martone Cycling Co. logo. These limited-edition rose gold-hued bikes will be available exclusively at Holt Renfrew in Canada, as well as www.martonecycling.com.

Designed in New York City and crafted in Taiwan, Martone bikes are composed of steel alloy and aluminum, weighing in at a mere 26 pounds (with basket). The wheels are 700 x 32c wide with stainless steel hubs and puncture resistant tires to tackle city streets.

Menswear Essentials | Cargo Pants

Originally designed for the military in the 1930s, cargo pants are loose fitting trousers designed to be extremely durable and be suitable for tough outdoor activities. They are typically characterized by multiple large pockets that were traditionally used to hold field dressings and other equipment. Crafted for paratroopers who literally had to jump out of a plane and be ready for battle the second they hit the ground. The cargo pant has stood through the test of time and carries quite a history.

Despite their reputation for being unfashionable, cargo pants are one of the biggest trend pieces for this season. As skinny trousers become replaced by more baggy alternatives, cargo trousers will become increasingly more popular. They have been looked at as really masculine, and at other moments in time they have been looked at as lame and uncool. They can be spotted being sported by comic book nerds to soldiers on the frontline, ready to step into action at any given moment. The cargo pant is like the double-agent of the menswear world, simultaneously working for both sides of the field – the cool and the uncool.

Arguably the most traditional cargo pant style, Khaki is a colour originally worn by the military for camouflage. Army cargo pants for men have been around ever since they were invented. The practical applications of these trousers make them excellent for extreme jobs. However, the stylish khaki colour also means they’re great for wearing casually. Pair them with a white shirt and a heavy duty workman jacket for a great everyday look.

KRUGER ORIGINAL LOOKBOOK ZINE

Some time ago I joined forces with Montreal based creative collective Kruger Originals to produce a look book featuring their latest pieces to their collection. Aside from hosting some the best parties in Montreal and home to some of Montreal’s top talents such as Pierre Kwenders, The Posterz, Abakos, and Bon Bon Kojak. Kruger Originals produces a line of merchandise that puts them over the top of other urban collectives in Montreal, Kruger sets  to push the threshold of community and creativity and by far a brand to reckon with.
