Olivia Palermo: Birkin bicycle

We undoubtedly have a soft spot for bicycle chic at Fashionising.com, but if this picture has not been in anyway staged then we’re now featuring something that takes the art of fashionable bicycle riding to a whole new level. In short, it shows a rather bland bicycle embellished by an Hermes Birkin bag and about to be ridden by one Olivia Palermo, leather shorts and all. So far, so standard. But in those heels?

Perhaps they’re going to be placed gently into the Birkin from which sensible flats shall replace them. Or perhaps Olivia Palermo has simply mastered the balancing act required in order to wear heels while riding a bicycle.

This look was snapped during London fashion week by The Sartorialist.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
