The limited-edition series with Cannondale features work by three artists

British fashion designer Stella McCartney has collaborated with bicycle company Cannondale on a series of limited-edition custom bicycles. The collection features prints and designs by three artists who McCartney worked with for her brand’s recent youth-inspired unisex capsule collection, Stella Shared 3.
The artists – Ed Curtis, Myfawnwy (Maisie Broome) and Tom Tosseyn – have each created two designs for the bicycles, in their signature styles. With the array of striking, often colourful designs, the bicycles challenge what a typical road bike might look like.

As well as celebrating art and youth culture, the collection promotes sustainable living and greener transport. ‘As a lifelong cycler and someone who rides their bicycle every day to work, I could not be more excited for my new shared journey with Cannondale,’ says McCartney. ‘The bikes we have created with our Shared 3 artist collaborators embody our common values and vision – blending beauty and desirability with a sense of responsibility to the next generation.’
Only 18 of the hand-crafted bikes were made in total; they are not available for purchase but can be viewed at Stella McCartney’s London Old Bond Street, New York City Soho, Shanghai Reel and Tokyo Aoyama flagships. Hopefully, they will be used for cycling too.
