Honestly it is not very hard to be in love with all that Brooks does, whether its legendary bicycle saddles or the beautiful accessories for urban cyclists! Recently, the historic British brand has released another collection that left us open-mouthed by the magnificent attention to detail and timeless design. The Metropolitan range combines the brand's great experience in developing beautiful and high quality accessories with functionality, essential for those traveling on two wheels. One might think at first moment that Brooks had merely presented one more backpack, but the Metropolitan collection includes several models that adapt to different situations. From the Lexington briefcase, ideal to take to work or put on the bicycle rack; the Rivington waterproof backpack in organic cotton; the versatile tote bag Mercer, perfect for everyday life in the city; or the beautiful Mott holdall that has room for everything you need to take on a weekend; everything is just perfect!
To accompany this release, Brooks presented an appealing website dedicated to the collection, where you can see the various Metropolitan pieces in action as well as several city guides, or Detours, made by urban cyclists from London to New York, via Berlin. Truly inspiring, the Detours by Brooks proves once again that the bicycle is the perfect means of transport to the city, perfectly adapted to human scale and the urban environment.
“I love nothing more than exploring, I feel so connected with the city on the bike and I especially love watching the seasons change around me,” Rachel Bale, Berlin.
