Phillip Lim's Girls on Bikes

The designer injects style into cycling.

There are two types of cyclists in this world. There are those who don head-to-toe lycra, blinding everyone with their neon array of synthetics and razor-sharp calves, and there are those that don't like helmet hair. If, like me, you fall into the latter category (and, let's face it, if you fell into the former, you'd probably be relentlessly refreshing this website right now), your choice of transportation is likely a sartorial one. Designer Phillip Lim obviously understands that cycling and style are currently synonymous, having just released Girls on Bikes, a video lookbook for his eponymous 3.1 label's AW 2011 collection.

Shot by Andrew Paynter, the film 8 gorgeous girls cycling around San Francisco in beautifully tailored dresses and tuxedos in shades of soft rose, pistachio and grey. It's all a lot more biker chic than biker mole. The lesson? Ditch the Stackhat, pull on your finery and get pedalling.
