This spring we introduce RI cycle, a capsule collection created for the urban cyclist. The collection mixes elements of performance sportswear with contemporary men’s styling to bring you a collection that crystallises cycling chic in all its forms. From the city gent to the downtown rebel, you can enjoy a relaxed style yet ride your bike with ease whether you’re heading to the pub or commuting to work. ‘While uncompromising on style, feel confident that you look the part while key features include unique performance detailing and streamlined silhouettes which move with the body, enhancing the ease, comfort and fun of cycling.’ ELIZABETH TAYLOR, MENSWEAR DESIGN MANAGER

Reflective trims, curved hems and reinforced quilting run throughout the collection. Water resistant zip pockets, ventilation slits and thumb hole cuffs ensure comfort; while fabrics such as stretch twill offer extra mobility. Waistbands are augmented with loops to accommodate bike locks and pockets are sized to fit maps.

Technology at London College of Fashion and since then has gained early recognition from “Ones to Watch” at LFW’s Menswear Day and Vauxhall Fashion Scout.
Joseph’s spring collection plays off chic elements of luxe sportswear, statement neoprene accessories and matching jersey sets, with a playful pink camouflage, a strong theme throughout, being the hero element of the range. All of these elements juxtapose to create a new take on 90s street wear influences, with just a touch of B-Boy swagger.
Earlier in the year we presented a film to launch the collection at London Collections: Men, teaming up with Joseph on a project directed by Alex Turvey as part of the Fashion Film initiative. The film featured new kids on the block and model collective, Justanorm who represent the urban aesthetic of Joseph’s collection.

I enjoy working across different genres and juxtaposing concepts so was keen to embed that in this collection. - JOSEPH TURVEY STYLE INSIDER SPRING 2014 15
