Fantastic compostion, Sartorialist! I also love how this woman radiates casualness, although she is dressed in chic black.

That’s it! Time to go for a ride. She’s wearing flipflops? I wish we could hear an audio clip. The subtle sounds of that sleek black bike with HEADLIGHT… ahhh… With only two days until 2006 Tour de France, are you hearing any buzz?
I love this photo.
I love her look.
So chic, on a bike and on cobblestones, with iPod.

Absolutely gorgeous. But, especially after the rash of bicyclist deaths in NYC, I must stress the importance of not listening to headphones while on the road.
Then again, I’m sure the roads she bikes on are a bit quieter…

This is the first time I have actually seen someone wearing flip-flops (outside of beach/shower moments) and not wanted to wretch. Point made! I’ll add bike riding time as another appropriate flip flop activity. I am just hoping that she has some killer heels in her bag/at work/home that shes trying to avoid scuffing.

where can you get a bike like that? i’ve been longing for a fashionable non-mountain bike after seeing all these photos! anyone?

Poetic. All black save for the whitewalls and her iPod cord. Sparkling. Almost too good to be true.

Mr/Ms Anonymous 7:14 PM, these bikes are what you might call a “utility bike”, “Dutch bike” or “euro bike”. The closests bike in the USA is probably those made by a company named Breezer. There’s also the more expensive company called Rivendell. Both manufacture european inspired utility bicycles.
You can have a makeshift one by buying the more prevlant “comfort bike” and installing chrome fenders, a rear rack, and changing the handle bars from straight bars(the most common, especially on Mountain bikes) to the more upswept ones(the ones you see on european utility bikes), commonly known as “north road” handlebars.

She’s beautiful. Looks a bit like Thandie Newton.
Now, I’m seriously considering painting my crusier a shiny black. Hmmm…

*sigh*no helmet, flip flops and headphones.Cute gal but c’mon now, lets be safe!

Her style is clean, classic with flare. Humble envy fills my mind.

reminds me of audrey hepburn . . . an understated, elegant, all time chic sense of style and beauty.

WOW! This is exactly what my project mate said while discussing the dress of Italian women. She lived there and said they were attractively dressed and wore bicycles! I can’t wait to send this to her! Sart score again!
