We’ve seen enough previews of the Le “Velo” Bike by Pharrell Williams for Domeau & Pérès and now they have officially dropped. These bikes are super limited, coming in 26 colors, each of which are only limited to 1.
“The idea came in 2009 after a visit to the Brooklyn Machine Works shop by Pharrell, Bruno Domeau & Philippe Pérès : the bicycle’s frame and fork are hand made out at the Brooklyn Machine workshop of 4130 chromemoly seamless airplane grade steel tubing.
After that, the bike is shipped to Domeau & Pérès in Paris where it’s upholstered in fine leather of water buffalo. All the stitching work is handmade : it takes them over 100 man hours.
Bikes are available in a variety of 26 colors, but each color is an edition of one and once purchased that color choice will no longer be available.”
