Ralph Lauren commission custom Chappelli cycles

Award-winning Chappelli cycles are now proudly displayed in Ralph Lauren stores across Australia. In Chappelli’s latest collaboration, the Australian bicycle designer has created five custom vintage single-speed bikes to form part of Ralph Lauren’s new visual merchandising plans nationwide.

Since 2009, Chappelli has been creating stylish, urban bicycles that deliver unrivalled quality to fashion conscious, urban cyclists across Australia. Chappelli has received international accolades for a design ethos that encompasses style, simplicity and sophistication.

Chappelli’s Vintage Single Speed bikes with custom aged-patina effect have been commissioned as part of Ralph Lauren’s new store design. These bikes feature styling that brings rich character and a vintage feel, inspired by bygone eras of custom builds.  Ralph Lauren stores are awash with timeless elegance, vintage fixtures and traditional detailing, all now enhanced by the inclusion of Chappelli cycles. A symbol of community, sustainability, quality and individuality.

This partnership is an exciting step in the Chappelli journey, Chappelli Director Marc Nesbitt commented, “This is an exciting time for the Chappelli brand, as we continue our focus on bringing the very best in well-designed, sophisticated, affordable bikes to the market. Being asked to create a custom design for a global brand like Ralph Lauren is a welcome recognition of all that we stand for here at Chappelli.”

With a shared passion for forward-thinking design, impeccable craftsmanship and unique aesthetic qualities, this collaboration incorporates a truly Australian brand into the shop floors of an American icon. What’s more, this partnership comes at a moment when the fashion industry continues its move towards intentional design, returning to the creation of products for longevity rather than novelty.

Ralph Lauren’s ‘design for good’ mantra is echoed in Chappelli’s focus on meaningful, purposeful design – bikes that are built to last and created for those who want to get out there and explore their urban environment in style.
